Having just done this, I used small needle-nose Vise Grips. At the throttle body, open the throttle all the way, and adjust the Vise Grips where they'll lock on the throttle cam (the part with the throttle cable attached to it) and on the throttle body where it bottoms out at full throttle. I'm sure you could do it with a zip tie, or something else with some strength. You do have to overcome the spring at full force. Here, this pic is worth the thousand words:
