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.
