    Default Zip ties are the best

    I mean...I freaking hold my bundle of zip ties together...with a zip tie.

    Duct tape...consider yourself knocked off your pedestal.

    Don't forget WD40. As the old saying goes "if it moves and shouldn't, duct tape. If it doesn't move but should, WD40".

    If it's wrong to be a pig, then I don't want to be right.

    Zip ties and velcro are both good. Tend to use zip ties more since they are stronger outdoors.

    Love me some Loctite too. And don't get me started on LED flashlights.

    If you are going to include tools in this, then you better break out the vice grips.

    I have one of these too. They are great for choosing the right tension as to not damage the cables. Plus it cuts the ties off nice and flush.
