LED strips and cables issue

Recommended Posts

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.
