If so, what did you use?

I was thinking of shower curtain rings, alligator clips and heat shrink.

Shower curtain rings from anywhere, alligator clips from Radio Shack, shrink wrap from wherever, and rubber bands from Office Max.

Yep....that'll do...

The one time I've seen that system struggle is when the guy didn't have his mast up high enough on his boat..and with little weight to pull the line down the tow line, they sorta just stuck in the bow in the line.

Cheap, effective, and not $12.00 for 4...

Made these 20 years ago and still going strong.
Bought the first set at Grand river tackle(top of pic)Then coppied from there(bottom of pic).
Cheapy shower curtain hooks
Muller #27 aligator clips
a little piece of surgical tubing
Rubber discs cut w/ leather hole punch
then epoxied into place



What I like about this style is that you can move the spring back and fourth to vary the tension on the main line.

What part does the surgical tubing play?
