Sticky Electrical Wire Holders

I am going to be running some light electrical wire and need to use some of those sticky electrical wire holder thingies that are glued/epoxied or whatever to bulkheads to hold wire in place. I don't know what they are called so can't GOOGLE for a source. Thanks

I have used them in the past and they are just plastic with double stick tape on the back to hold them up. None of the ones I have used have ever stayed up very long. For electrical wiring I highly suggest something more permanent. I buy a lot of hard to find things here, .Chuck

I have seen cable ties which have an addition tab and hole to screw to a bulkhead, might be an idea.

Agree with Waterwayguy, the sticky ones aren't sticky for very long.

Stick 'em up with a dab of 5200/4200 fast cure and you have a permanent solution. The double back tape holds the piece in place until the 5200/4200 FC kicks in 24 hours. Rough up the surface and wipe with alcohol first. Quick. Easy. Neat. Permanent.

You can go to weldmount and find the more permanent ones there, we use them building yachts and since they are applied with methocrylate adhesive they wont come off. very very good system...ohh by the way they have many diff types of fastening gadgets that many will find very usefull. They sell a kit that contains the glue, a glue gun, and a selection of each fastner.

Good luck
