I'm trying to model a fire extinguisher following this model (I'm practicing). I stopped at this kinda curvy shape that is extruded from the circle. I tried as many ways as I could think of but the mesh wasn't clean like the picture, if I add SubDiv, things get worse. Any approach to how to do this?

This is the model that I'm following. The black circles are the thing I want to create enter image description here

This is my model so far enter image description here

This is when I tried to SubDiv the mesh (it's really bad) enter image description here

Hope I provided enough information. I'm willing to provide more in order to solve this problem.

Thank you.
