"T-nuts look like a great solution! I've use thin nuts (called half-nuts) glued onto the top of a wire loop, the idea being that the tie down will pull it down onto the wire, not pull it away.  But I also put epoxy putty around it, to be…"

"Yes, just wrap the wire around the nut above the base and glue in place with the metal epoxy. When it is hard, then file it down to the size you want."

"Here's a pic of 3mm and 4mm T nuts. You can see that they have sharp prongs standing up. These can be folded a bit over the wire, but take care not to damage it. Then glue the wire on with the metal epoxy, and before it has completely set add…"
