    Picatinny Wire Management

    We’ve got a thread for M-LOK, but I’m not finding one for Pic rails and with so many of us sticking with or going back to the ol’ cheese-graters I figure we need one. The only two that come to my mind are the old LaRue index clips with the hooks and Arson Machine Picatinny WireGuide™ Clamps. So what options are out there today for wire control on Picatinny handguards?

    Index Clips worked really well before I abandoned wires for illumination devices years ago.

    If I were forced to use a pressure pad, I probably wouldn't even look for a new solution. Index Clips are in a drawer waiting to be used. I still use the non wire-restraining clips on Picatinny rails.

    What's wrong with some good ole fashioned zip ties? Or One-Wrap if you wanna be extra.

    Cloud Defensive LCS works well for me, but I’m only dealing with one cable from a single WML.

    It’s a 1913 mount for the tape switch. You can route unused cable within the mount, leaving only the bare minimum exposed.

    I snake the wires through the rail and combo of zipties and hockey tape.

    I wanna say some of Manta's rail covers are designed with cableways. They have a really nice kit for wrangling VFG-mounted tapeswitch cable that the Marines adopted.

    Hard to argue against old school retention methods on classic old school rails, but one would think more options would be out in this day and age given how long they have been around.

    those are actually nuch nicer than I expected, as are the regular Manta lo-pro covers. I have not yet used them in the summer, where I wonder if they could possibly start to feel a bit slippery.

    There’s also the ladder panels that have wire management tabs, but they’re not as beefy as some other options.

    Like Grizzman, I’ve abondoned the siren song of wired remote switches. I’ve been chasing the latest, this-one-will-finally-totally-be-reliable, remote switches for 20 years now, and every single one has fallen short. God put multiple joints in my opposable thumb for a reason, it seems.

    I love the LaRue clips for general use. The one thing that mental patient makes that I like. I never did run any wires though... I'd rip that crap apart within a month.
