Cables are fairly easy to make. I go to Lowes or good hardware stores and buy vinyl coated steel cable 2 to 3' long and crimp ends. I use a bench vise to smash the ends and sometimes lodge a nail between the jaws and clamp for extra crushing. Cheap - just a few bucks. I coil them up around my hand and slide them into pieces of MC inner tube for storage in my back pack or tank bag.
