Emergency brake cable tie back?

This question is for those that have had to tie back their SS emergency/parking brake cable because of smaller wheels, etc. What did you tie it back to? Thanks.

I put a small 1/2" long piece of fuel hose (split lengthwise) around the cable just inboard of the factory white plastic "bushing thingy", with a small hose clamp around the fuel hose. Then I pulled the emergency brake cable inward as much as was needed to prevent it from rubbing on the wheel and tightened the clamp down.
