Fine, use electrical tape. Seriously though, what's the problem??

The tape is only keeping the pigtail in place, nothing else. Don't use duct tape, use elec tape or painters tape. If your brake is outside the drum like on the EPI 9.0 mentioned, it won't melt.

All the vehicles we've used for training over the last 10+ years, we used gorilla or duct take. Never used the set screw, but laid a section of line parallel to the drum, held some sections of tape and spun the winch in. Friction is all that needs to hold the line on anyhow. The brakes are on the outside, not the drum, so no issues with heat.
