I really like the cable tie alternative, Rapstrap and rate them highly. A cable tie is great but a Rapstrap has arguably more versatility because it can be cut and tied again, which means you can get several uses from each Rapstrap thus reducing wastage.

Made from soft rubber, which is resistant to fuel, oil and other chemicals and with pack process starting at just £3 they are a bargain. More from www.rapstrap.com ENDS.
