I personally use a piece of spare .5" double braid nylon I had laying around the rope locker with two oversized snap-shackles (AKA carabiners?) and attach one end to the shackle which attaches the vang to the boom and attach the other to the deck. It works great and its lots faster and easier than detaching the vang. Hope this helps!
