Mooring loops too big for cleat

Question.. What do you do when you pull up to a mooring and find out the rope is to big? For example 1 inch diameter - 2 lines...

I ran into this and just took a single 3/4 rope and looped it around both loops then hitched it around the cleat.

This method ok? I was little concerned about the rope eating though each other. Should I carry a metal clip for this?
