    Another option for a safety back up cable is "Stainless Fishing Wire Steel Leaders Line".

    They come in various pound strengths and lengths. I have used these with a 55 pound strength.

    They also have eyelets on each end that lets lets you loop it at the latch end. Also the fishing leader line diameter is very small and less obvious.

    Nice find, that would work great also. I used a brake cable and made a pull loop on the end of it, with vacuum hose for the grip (won't cut your hand) and secured with two crushable aluminum tandem sleeves. Then that is looped up and velcro-ed under the dash so it's not by my feet.

    I'm totally trashed when I made this and uploaded it but hopefully it will convey my vast wisdom on the subject...in other words...I am drunk and used the term "in other words" way too much...but my advice is sound.
