I am still waiting for my tower to be delivered, but I am planning to do
things "the right way" for the coax and control cables -- using Kellem
grips, which all the "real electrical suppliers" (not to be confused
with Home Despot, etc.) seem to sell in various sizes. I am not using
hardline -- difficult, since it's a crank-up tower -- but ISTR seeing
made-for-the-purpose devices in some catalog or other.
As has been mentioned here before, cable ties tend to crush the cable
and electrical tape tends to come undone.
