Jeff, Et. Al.,

Rather than wrap the wire around the insulator opening or itself, how
about a "split bolt" wire clamp with the saddle on the tension side?  A
good "mechanical knot".  I can take photo of one if needed.  Here is a

There is a larger one on the same "elecdirect dot com" page on the
internet as well.
