Search for "wire rope clip" at Home Depot or Lowes for a u-bolt type 
clamp.   In one application, I cut the bolts then wrapped it a bunch in 
electrical tape so it wouldn't scratch me.

I also used some 1/8" cable to make a lock for my kayak on the roof rack 
and just used a 3lb sledge hammer on the sidewalk.  That one I covered 
in heat shrink tubing.
