**** Excellent point. I forgot all about this.
I use "Stabilant"   http://www.stabilant.com/  on all my electrical
contacts, after cleaning them. "Stabilant" is expensive as hell, but a
little goes a long long way and it lasts forever on the contacts.
I also use dielectric grease on all connections to prevent oxidation and
moisture penetration.

House wiring, that 14-2 , 3 conductor cable is an excellent source for tie
offs and standoffs. Strip out the black and white wires and use them to
space wires, hold down wires, etc.
12-2 cable is better for heavier duty tasks.
These wires are more versatile than duct tape!
