Have you tried a overhand knot on each side and an double overhand knot on the standing ends of the rope?

Yes. It seems pretty good.

I've also tried an overhand in the "loop" of the arm, then pass the standing end through that overhand, then tie a double overhand in the standing end around the "loop" of the arm. It ends up much like a double fishermans, dresses nicely, and seems like it would be very strong (though I haven't done any testing yet). I may be able to access a load cell to test some of these ideas in the next few weeks. If so, I'll post the results.

Attached is another diagram that may better show the idea, in case my multiple colors of lines were confusing. The blue ellipses are the knots which fix all three strands at that point.
