I33... please get some mental bleach and stop letting the sewer rats use your mind as a soccer ball.
The main sheet really needs to be on a line clutch or cam cleat, rather than a regular cleat, because it may need to be released in a hurry... Cleating off the main sheet to a horn cleat is a really bad idea. Even using a line clutch is kind of dangerous...especially the Spinlock ones, which have issues with being released under high loads.
If you could say what size line the mainsheet uses, and post a photo of the setup, it might make it easier to give you some alternatives.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
