I use cable ties, but it seems like Velcro would be better because it would dig into the casing on the CCRs as much.

Sorry you have to cut off the cable ties! It is up to you, most people use cable ties.

This is my 1st year but I used cable ties also. Cheaper as well. I just didn't over tightened them as someone else stated. I used white ties because each of the 1x2 I used for the Matrix are white & so you cannot see them. The white boards seem to made the Matrix stand out better. Next year I hope to cover the Matrix  (each ribbon) in a kind of see through white plastic. I wonder how that would look on a ccr tree? A tree might be next years project but we shall see.

 

Hope you kept the ties on. Next year try the Velcro idea. I was thinking that in the cold sub-0 temp. we get the Velcro my not hold up.
