You can just go to Home Depot or Lowes, what ever, I was able to get tubing, worm clamps, 90 degree fittings, and "T" lines for a little cheaper than any online place without including shipping. As a bonus you can pick up some Razor blades (for tube cutting)/dremel cut off wheels (for case moding) while your there.

If you (like me) are some what unsure of sizing or anything, the items are right there for you to handle and dry fit before you buy! The bigger stores also have tons of other stuff for you to check out in the plumbing isle, you might get inspired with some of the stuff they have.

Agreed. HD, Lowes and Ace are a great place for most of your WC'ing needs.
The sales reps don't hassle you like Best buy, and the isles are wide enough
to literally lay out larger parts concepts for dry fitting. Between their plumbing
and gardening irrigation sections you should find most all the
tube/pipe/barbs/fittings and adhesives needed to complete your project.

Plus their return/swap policies are painless and quick.

I use zip ties too. It is a little snug in there but its manageable.

For zip ties on 3/4"OD tube and triple barb blocks, a credit card is my preferred tool of force.

I was contemplating zip ties, but then I realized getting them off might be a bit sketchy.

Uber sharp blade + possibly slippery tubing + small plastic ring + delicate electronics = problem

For the above equation there are only two outcomes , the knife passes through the tubing before entering my hand/mother board. Alternatively the knife misses the tubing and just passes through my hand/motherboard.

I use a diagonal cutter/plier to cut the zip tie head off (like this one)

yeah if you can cut that big head off (or most of it), you can pick at it enough to where it just snaps and the zip tie comes right off without damaging (cutting into) any tubing or cables you may have tightly rapped.

Just leave the little square end on the outside edge and when you go to remove them, just take scissors and cut that in half. Then the zip tie usually just falls off.

Dikes are my first choice too. They eliminate any possible damage to self/tube.

Tin snips work even better being smaller and sharper.
