PSR Drain Plug Safety tether?

I just picked up a PSR magnetic drain plug for the track bike. Without knowing it actually came with a safety wire tether. Is it worth using? My only concern with it only being a safety pin on a wire, I can't really get clockwise tension on the bolt. Should I just safety wire it by hand? If I do opt for the tether, it comes with a mounting tab to go under a bolt. The most obvious one in the area would be one of the oil pan bolts. If I pull just one long enough to put the mount under it any real chance of a leak starting there?

Safety wire it yourself, and use tubing anywhere it rubs.

I have the same plug and I am using the pin. First pic shows pretty well; second pic is blurry but shows where I put the tab (that my oil filter wire also runs to). I might change it to just wire the plug directly though. Not like it's difficult to snip and rewire for an oil change.

That's the direction I was leaning. I don't think it would pass tech with the safety pin.

I think some orgs don't accept pins on any safety wiring. For racing, I'd probably manually wire it. Has to be more secure.

Here are a couple of pics. I took the bracket off the right side that was used to mount the OEM fairing. I used that same spot to mount the plug safety wire bracket. I didn't want to remove a oil pan bolt and risk causing a slight leak.

That's a good placement. I might mount the bracket there as a wiring point even if I decide to manually safety wire it.

Looks good. I think my bodywork brackets are different.
