    All the aircraft cables will eventually loosen. Since they're cheap, I guess you could glue them closed. The only ones I've heard that don't loosen are the Lucky Line 71101 and 81101, because they have special locking mechanisms. 81101 is a bit more secure but fiddly (that's what people say, I find it easy to use)

    That's easy - Lucky Line. They are stiffer than the so-called "aviation" cables, but where they really shine is in their locking mechanisms. You can get one that unlocks by flexing (Flex-o-loc) and one that unlocks by twisting into a figure 8 (Twisty). Either is very secure, but I prefer the Flex-o-loc.

    Antithetik, keep an eye on those clips. Years ago, I used several of them and had more than one fail, either the spring broke or the swivel came apart and I nearly lost some gear. Haven't used them since. YMMV, of course.

    Nah, just something to be aware of. I use, almost exclusively, McGizmo clips- #2 for items clipped to key ring and #3 for clipping key ring to belt dangler. I also use some of the CC micro clips. No weak points in stainless vs. pot metal.

    Just get one of the ones from Lowe's Hardware. Theirs' comes with a red or blue coating that keeps the cable from fraying.

    Have you had issues with weak gates? I've had a couple that would let gear pop off the ring. Doesn't seem to be a consistent problem though as my other McGizmo clips work fine.
