Any suggestions / links?

I'm looking for something neat / tidy / light weight to secure 4x remote canisters for the Nitrons on Impreza.

Something like this ideally -

IMO cable ties (only cable ties) isnt an option. Mounting a tube to a flat doesn't work

What's the diameter of the reservoir tube?
Possibly something plastic out of the plumber's merchants?

These are 68-72mm and £1.60 a pair from Screwfix (various other sizes available)

Second suggestion from the world of plumbing:

How about these?


Cut a couple of slots in the retaining panel and run the jubilee clips through...
