Used to be Rudy but he's passed on.
WOW, just did a search and the usual suspects aren't listed in Goog.

I make mine (a bit cheaper). I tried 50lb x 16 inch long fishing leaders but they broke. Now using 100 lb leaders.
I used to use several layers of duct tape with an embedded house wire but the bikes heat softened the tapes gummy glue.
So now using 3M tape. After it's been on for several months, it's almost permanent.
Suggestion, IF you're making yours, double up the wire attachment in an X pattern, it spreads the stress out should they pop off & fly in the wind.

When I do one thing, I'll sidestep a little & learn many things.
