Default Wire end for AFP Purge arm

What are folks using to terminate the bowden cale that operates the purge valve actuator? The cable ends sold by Vans and ACS has a usable shank of about .025" which is fine if it's actuating a thin sheet of Al, but that control arm is itself 0.25" leaving no room to get a washer and castle nut on it.


I can make something out of a short piece of angle and a couple of bolts and washers, but just wondering if there was something more elegant.
