Fold the braid double and tie an improved clinch or Polamar knot with the doubled loop.

General rule of thumb for braid is to simply increase the number of turns in your knot. The reason the knots slip is that braid does not stretch so it needs a larger surface to grip over.

So if you normally use 4 turns in your nylon knot to tie the release clip, use the same knot with 8 -10 turns and it will hold 100%
