I have the e681 for example, in the cg-1500 with 16 pixel wires and pixel connector hanging out the bottom and would like

to know what others are doing in order to take the stress off the euro plugs .

Is this a concern ?

Tips or advice welcome.

thanks in advance.

I only have 6 dongles coming out of my 681. I grouped them in 2 groups of 3's, and put a zip-tie right before they exit the enclosure. Then I squeezed in a small nail (with a blunt point) and put a zip-tie right above that. The nail is larger than the hole and keeps everything from pulling out past that point. I also put a zip-tie on the outside immediately after they exit - this keeps the dongles from easily being pushed up through the hole (not quite as safe as the nail, but that direction is the least likely).

I'm also known to zip-tie wires to holes in power supplies, etc for strain relief, which is what I did for the input cord.

I zip tie them together in groups inside the box so strings going to different holes are tied together.

I do this also, simple and cheap.
