The red rubber snubber is a device made just for this purpose. It has large bronze eyelets with about 1 inch openings in them the other end of the bronze eye is molded into the rubber. The band is quite stout, it is 2 inches wide and 3/4 thick. It is long enough to loop around the boom completely and the eyes dangle about 6 to 8 inches below the boom. For kicks I called a friend in the business who informed me these are no longer available. So when mine breaks I'll be searching for a used one or cooking up a replacement. Probably heavy dacron webbing with several strands of thick bungie inside.
