Attach them to a face plate.

Or if you just have to have a chuck, you don’t have to spend $300.
I got my WoodRiver chuck from Woodcraft for about $80.

Are you trying to sand in/out side of bowl and how is it mounted on the lathe now?

Plenty examples of jam & donut chucks on the web. Also many You-tube videos showing how it is done.

I’m going to make this sometime in the near future, though it’s more for the outside of the bowl:

You could also consider one of the utility grip four jaw chucks from PSI for $89. I just got mine, and though I haven’t used it much, it seems to work well plus it comes with a cole jaw set:
