Jean:

You could also use ss or monel wire and sieze the spreader to the wire.
About 8 tight turns right above the spreader then figure eight through the slot to the bottom of the stay, another 8 tight turns and back to the top, then do it again but with 4 turns then again with 2 but going around the outside not through the slot, then wind the tails up. = easy

This has held my tips fixed for the past 7 years with no problems.
Although I try not to stand any further out than 9" from the mast when standing on the spreaders.

I also used a hose clamp wrapped with rope to keep the wire in the slot and to protect the sails.
