Best knot for outhaul?

The line connecting my main's tack to the outhaul has stretched to the point where the main isn't fully out when the outhaul has reached the end of the boom, so I'm going to retie it. What is/are the proper knot/s for this purpose? The current knot looks like two half hitches and some extra stuff thrown in, and not like any actual knot I've ever seen.

Would it be better to just use a shackle between the grommet on the tack and the outhaul?

Thanks!
