Free Electrical clips.
Hey gang, I figured I'd spread these around for everyone to use to route wires with. There pretty neat actually, the have a plastic spring built into them and really hold the wires stiffly in place. they can take up to 1/2 inch of wire in there!
Heres a pic of them and a demo with 2 wires from the bilge pump. The adhesive on the back is slim shady, so I would put a dab of your favorite glue on the back to be sure. The inside surface of a jetski is pretty coarse with the fiberglass mat in there.
Paypal me a 1.00 and i'll send whatever you need, 1 ,5, 10 ,20.ete..

Any idea what type of plastic the clips are made from?
Just wondering what type of glue would stick well to that plastic.
I have used some of the Goop glues to hold Nylon cable tie clamps inside my hulls. Works well as long as the supported weight isn't too heavy.
Note: A well supported wire harness is much less liable to cause trouble over time. The constant flexing and bouncing while riding eventually can cause the wires to break down inside the insulation.
These problems can be difficult to track down and fix, especially if the wires become intermittent and only cause trouble while you are riding.
Not only does it look tidy when the wiring is nicely done, but you will have less trouble with it over time.
Sleeving the wires in convoluted tubing also helps support and protect everything.
