Default Looking for a cable tie

I'm looking for a specific cable management device. The picture is crude but shows what it looks like, that back side is adhesive. I saw them in a backup tape drive I was fixing once and liked them much better than the gromet+zip tie combo. If anybody knows where I can get my hands on some I would be much obliged.

Just buy some tac tape. Its basically velcro that you can use for cable management. Out of curiousity, is the large square piece stuck to a drive or something, im not sure i understand what this is doing.

I would say, buy some of those adhesive pads at some local arts and craft store and get some velcro.

The square part is stuck to the side of the case with adhesive. The "arm" is made of malleable, i think thats how you spell it, metal. The whole thing is coated in some soft plastic. The colored lines are crude wires just to give you the feel of whats going on.

Ah ok, makes sense now. Tinsnips, some scrap aluminum, electrical tape and hot glue I have no idea where you might find those, but if you find some i'd be interested in picking a couple up as they look pretty useful.

Aye they were the sheezy in that tape drive, I wanted to swipe some out of it but as a professional in my field (snicker) I couldn't. Also they probably would of noticed them missing because it looked so clean in there.
