Hide Cable Behind Siding

Hello All,

See below pic.

I try tucking this cable up but it keeps falling down. Is there a clip or something that I can use to keep it from being exposed?

Unlock the siding from the starter strip, tuck in the wire as high as you can and reinstall with one of these.

Any Lowe's or HD will have them.

If there's enough slack you would be better off running it in the J molding above that beauty strip and let gravity be your friend.

There are lots of clips that use two sided tape in the electrical section of the hardware/big box store. You could even use some duct seal or silicone to hold it in place. Use some clothes pins to hold it in place until the silicone dries.

Run it through the attic and fish it down through the wall to where it is needed.

Clips with 2 sided tape . . I will be in HD today and will look.

Would you have an example of a product name off the top of your head?

You might have to look in the hardware section rather than electrical.
Look for the 3m hooks and cable keeps, they have quite a few to choose from.
