        3 Mini-Mule Wire Clamps (MP 189) 1/16-1/4"   1300#  $30
        3 Home Depot Tie-downs including ratchet    ~2000#   15
                                                  Total     $45

3 makes it very easy to plumb the tower as you go up and the above
is plenty of overkill for typical 3/16" or 1/4" EHS guys.
