straps for me

because if a cable breaks and hits you in the eye your's in a bit more trouble

Also make no doubt about it either only fail because of overload or bad maintenance/inspection replacement. It's a bit easier to see that a starp is iffy

Another vote for strap. Don't use the wimpy seatbelt material, though; get the heavy duty tow stuff (fairly coarse weave, about 3 times thicker than the seatbelt stuff.) Often found in hardware stores and auto supply shops as tow straps (well, not exactly what you need, but you'll see the webbing, anyway.)
