parking brake adjustment & locking clamp

Hi,
My parking brake cable on lifted 2003 Astro seems to back off and loosen over time causing parking brake to not hold the Astro on an incline.
After snugging it with 16 mm wrench on the nut and 5 mm wrench on the flat, I added a small clamp to attempt to prevent the cable from turning. I will try to find photo.

Howdy,

Attached is photo showing stainless steel clamp and machine screws and nylon lock nuts. I also added some nice yellow adhesive tape that has inch ruler markings to allow some reference point of before and after adjustment settings.
