I just thought I would repost this cheap trick using zip-ties as wire guides.

Take a look at the photograph to see how it's done.

I can always count on Dave for a complement. You need to drive it sometime.

When you use zipties...buy the black UV resistant ties. The ones at Harbor Freight will dry rot in no time.

The way you showed is the exact way we do it in aviation. It not only secures them nicely, but also prevents chafing.

I will never buy zip ties from Harbor Frieght again! The last ones I bought just snapped every time I tried to snug them down. I'm not talking about tightening the crap out of them either, just snug.

That is a cool tip! The simple stuff is usually the neatest!

The best zipties I can get are from Grainger supply. The zipties can be bought at other places... I believe lowes carry smaller packs...

One thing you can do to keep wires from chaffing against surfaces...

Take a small section of hose...1/2" or so length. put one end of the ziptie thru the hose, then around the wire, and back thru the hose. Both ends of the ziptie should be on one end of the hose. now you can zip that to the surface.
