Default open headers

hey guys. im running open headers friday to hook up my exhaust. right now i have taken off the manifolds and hooked upthe shortiesand the old pipe and flange with the 2 bolt manifold adapter to the 3 bolt flange off the header seem to meet close enough that i put a bolt through bothand screwed in one bolt per header with about 3-4 threads tight with the nut. i was wondering tho what i should do to fasten the pipe in place better tho. it would make a pretty big mess if i was driving 40mph and one of the pipes fell. so what all can i use to fasten it better? i was thinking of using a coat hanger and securing it better to the pipe and flange. do i need to hang it also to the transmission carage bar?

its kinda risky theres barly enough space because of the angle of the tube to put one bolt in with a few threads
