LED strips and cables issue

Same situation on a brand new UM2+.

The red connecting wires between the LED strip lights touches the pulleys in the upper right and left corners. The cables will slowly grind down until they short circuit. What shall we do?

    I solved the issue by glueing the cables to the front panel. For better access I removed the right side panel, then added some drops Pattex 100% and pushed the cables down with a clamp. This glue is great. It stays flexible and glues almost every material. Only downside is it takes 24 hours to cure.

    I love pattex, but mind that at 80C it will start to loose adhesion, so over time, specially if you ever enclose the machine, you might find that falling again.

    I would try a bit of sugru, totally elastic and can resist 180C, also it can be removed.
