Makerslide T Slot Wire Retainers

I made these simple retaining clips to hold wires in the T slots of the makerslide.

Perfect timing!
I spent some time last night trying to figure out the best (easiest) way to route the wiring without resorting to drilling holes.
A quick search of Thingverse turned up nothing suitable.
Next time I'm at the local hackerspace, I'll make some of these. (although probably not in yellow...)
Thanks

Regards
Geoff

I like it! If you wish to "cover" the wires, this is also useful:

Just discovered Sugru works great as well (although non reusable if it's removed). A blob of Sugru over the gap and it sticks well to the aluminium.

You can make reusable clips with sugru by using plastic wrap/celophane. I made a holder for my headphones volume control, I just wrapped the volume control unit in plastic wrap and squished sugru around it.
