I am looking to wire my house with CAT6 and COAX. I am looking to properly support the long horizontal runs that I will have in my house. I was planning on using Bridle rings or zip ties screwed into the underside of the floor joists. But after some research I discovered that that is not the optimal way of supporting CAT6 cabling. I was then looking at the CADDY supports, but I can't seem to find any that fit my install application. My cable runs will all be run perpendicular to the floor joists, and I can only find the CADDY brackets that can be screwed into the wooden beams that would run parallel with the CAT^ cables that was why I was going to use Bridle rings that I could screw into the bottom edge of a 2x10 that run ever 16" OC spacing them ever 3-4 feet.
Any idea? Is using zip ties OK if they are loose and I space them out every other floor joist?
