Thanks all. Never thought of using a short strop to stop it jumping off in the first place! I will investigate.

Other thing to consider is a cast clamp pad with a perimeter lip - that will stop it walking too far up the transom should the thumbscrews loosen..... but does kind of rely on you spotting it before the screws loosen enough to get over the lip!
