I used some aircraft cable and a 1/8th inch drillbit and two crimps. I didn't want the finger hole in my grills. They are home depot gutter guards btw. Anyhow I drilled 2 holes in the tube brace for the grill and passed the cable through then drilled 1 hole in the finger latch and attached the cable. On the other end made a loop and crimped it. It works flawless and looks like it was meant to be there. Here are some pictures.
