    Small dia Stainless Steel wire from marine store, tuck ends in so not sticking out. Tape around it. I personally like the small zip ties.

    The zip tie broke so I figured something stronger was needed. I will try the piano wire today as I have that. Appreciate the feedback.

    Anything will do as long as it's not going to tear you sail when going down wind.
    Zip ties will work if you don't cut them .
    When you cut the zip tie you might end up with a sharp end
