If you're looking for a good, inexpensive pre-made cable, check this out:
It can happen. I had 40 lb. come off held by hose, drug for few miles,ground bottom ring 1 side, if hose broke would have gone under, end of AS, luckily no other damage & tank still usable. Will look for cable as next time maybe not so lucky, or drill bottom ring of tank then pad lock w/loop to go into ring & over retaining loop on AS. This first time for over 65 yrs. AS stated it can happen. Maybe some one tried to steal tank as happened few miles from cg.
