Aside from those large ugly hose clamps and zip ties, what else is good for securing tubing? I used copper wire, and it worked fine, but im out of copper wire and I would like to know what my best options are. The thing is, I have very little space and cant get away with using something large, if copper wire is my best option then I will go buy some more, but if something else is better, I would love to know what it is.

Try searching for 'hose clamp' on mcmaster site - I browsed through just a few pages (around pg 218-220) and they have typical stuff and some other clamps. There are some nylon snap-together clamps in there too, not sure how well they work though.

If you're really cramped for space I would think zip ties are one of the better ideas.
