I used a length of safety wire from my former motorcycle racing days. It's thin, strong and pretty cheap. Worked great. and easy to keep a small coil in the pack for emergency and/or field repairs.
I did have one question though, how much distance are you guys using between the bury of the fixed eye and the exit for the adjustable bury?
