Hi all!

I am looking for an alternative to the clips that are common on tailwheel chains (see pic). I know Mauls use what is shown in 2nd pic, but I can't source them separately. Does anybody have any cost effective suggestions?

Maybe a swaged one of these onto your rudder cables?

I use a stainless version of the Maule type. Readily available online - Google "threaded quick link stainless steel". You will need to drill safety wire hole, easily accomplished with a cobalt bit.
