where to attach end-boom gybe preventer


humbly soliciting an opinion on yet something else ...

chartering a 40 ft monohull with in mast furling and want to rig an end boom preventer (have read the posts relating to benefits/disadvantages of end-boom vs mid-boom preventers vs boom brakes).

since a charter boat, dont really have an option of adding dedicated hardware for attachment. options for attachment at the boom end are, I guess, line tied directly around boom end vs. line tied/shackled to clew cringle vs tied through cringle around boom vs ... something else i'm not thinking about?

any recommendations for where to attach an end-boom preventer?
