Stuck Outhaul on boom.

The traveler on my outhaul has not been moved in 2 years. It is frozen in place as though welded. I have tried lots of stuff to free it. The boom is aluminum and the traveler is SS. Any thought on freeing it would be appreciated. Failing to free it, I was considering using a band around the boom or a line around the boom to keep the clew down and use the outhaul to tension the foot. ANY THOUGHTS?
