Try aralditing the plastic clips on - it works on the race boat so it should work on anything!

Spiral wrap is good for keping the cables tidy or plastic flexi conduit. I am suprised the tabs you have used fall of, i got mine from RS and they stick really well..is the inside of the console smooth? I fitted all the bits on a board, that made it easier to work on. dont foret to use tinned cable where you can, that will cut down on corrosion problems. Merlin Equipment do some good marine bits.

Cable tie mounts and snap rivets.

If youre worried about the thickness of the console try using a snap rivet or nylon push rivet to hold the cable tie base on.

Peel cable tie base
Stick it on
Drill required hole say 5mm (with base in position)
Add right sized snap/push rivet
Feed through cable tie

Job Done!

I know because I sell these products...no plugging intended!

forgot this one...

Tim

Easier than cable ties as its a one piece unit:

The other thing you could use is a push in clip designed for wire management.

There are loads of different sizes and types.

All you have to do is drill a 4.8/5mm hole
Push the arrowhead part of the clip in
Put wires in holder part of clip.

You can also get push in holders for cable ties.....there are loads of easy ways of doing this

I used the plastic clip thingies on the outside of the transom to hold my depthfinder cable. Wipe the surface with a bit of acetone, moisten the foam tape adhesive with acetone (one swipe with a damp cloth will do it) then stick it on. Mine lasted 3 years, and when they began failing, the tape let go of the plastic.

I use the same style clips on my Zodiac but have not had any problems with unsticking.

Bought mine from Durite.
