Retainer for detatched Inner Forestay

My PSC 34 Cutter has a detatchable (at the deck) inner forestay.
Problem is when its detatched I have a loose forestay with the exception of it being attached mid mast. I've seen a retainer that mounts to the cabin top but don't know of a source to purchase one. Has anyone purchased or know where to get one of these retainers. Usually its a 2 piece item. Part one is a device with an arc shaped area to re-direct the cable and avoid "Kinking" it. The second piece is the actual retainer that makes the bitter end fast to the cabin top.

Thanks !!
Keith

Re: Retainer for detatched Inner Forestay

TDW - thanks for the post and the link. It helped me as well. I don't have the retainer setup on the cabin top, I put it off to the side and it seems to work OK. See the picture for 1000 words of explanation...

I'll update / upgrade the rope sections of this eventually but for now it is really convenient to setup and take down.

Re: Retainer for detatched Inner Forestay

Thanks to both of you.
I recieved my retainer from CS Johnson yesterday.
it's not as pretty and shiney as I had hoped but I'm sure it will work.

Ken,
The pic DOES speak a 1000 words. I was considering tapping into (round aluminum) dorade box to add an attatch point and run stay aft to staysail car.
Your attatch looks like an easier and stouter solution.
