What does your shop use to tie network cabling together?  I've heard IEEE

allow cable ties.  I've seen Velcro used and I'm looking for a source. 
Anything work
better than Velcro?

Cable ties pose three problems.  One is the tendency to pull them too
tight, which damages the cable.  The second is that when you have to
change them you have to use wire cutters, and can damage the cable.
The third is that most anal folks cut the ends of the cable ties, and
the resulting tips are quite sharp and can damage our hands!

I happen to like Velcro tape - hooks on one side, loops on the other.
You can buy pre-cut sizes, or you can buy rolls.  I like the rolls;
you can cut it to length.  Home Depot has it, but they are expensive.

Take care ...
