I know there is a better name for it but it escapes me at the moment. The most descriptive is "luggage tag" hitch. This is how I attach my jib sheets; they also used to hang up on the inner forestay.

I attach my staysail sheets with this soft toggle arrangement; they have never flogged loose in over 30 years of sailing. It is easily undone and allows me to reef the staysail quickly.
