Shhhhhh! Trying to help you techies out! Adhesive probably won't harm the finish whereas a zip tie might scratch it. I have seen bread bag ties, various types of tape and various types of string /rope /twine used to "secure /fix" brace issues. Most recent "fix" I saw was a beanbag (the brace) held in place by a huge zip tie (the solder!!! ). Was a Schiller marching tuba!!!!
