A clove hitch is wonderful, quick, easy, cheap, flexible, and my wife doesn't want to use it.

Hence these. They are easy to put on and easy to take off. The fender is easy to adjust as well. They are also very strong. I use two of them on my FenderStep and clip them to the base of the stanchions in the boarding gate.

I picked up a couple at the Seattle boat show and my wife ended up loving them so much that I got enough for all my fenders. It makes the wife very happy, which is turn makes me very happy.
