    What is the best place to get a package of Zip Ties? Would the local Radio Shack have them? Secondly, do they require the use of a "gun" to tighten?

    You can get them at home depot or any other home building supply store. They have ties which require a gun to tighten them or there are ties which you can tighten by hand, I use the hand tightened ties in my job everyday and they work very well. They should also come in different sizes and colours as well. They should be quite easy to find. Good luck.![​IMG]

    I think I'll go with those velcro ties then, at your suggestion. Thanks!

    Velcro tie wraps are gods gift to anyone that works with any amount of cabling. I use them daily at work with network and other computer cables, and at home with my home theater stuff. The best are the ones that have a loop to run the end through. The case logic ones suck.
