Some good ideas so far, keep them coming. Seems as if PVC is the product that many seem to want to use.

I make my own. I use a bicycle tube, slit it down a rib, cut 1/2 inch strips from the opened tube, then cut them to the length I desire, tie the ends together in a knot. When you cinch them up they stay in place. Good for hoses, RF cables, and a lot of other things. Inexpensive also.
You can also make large, strong rubber bands out of an inner tube by cutting thin strips across the radius of the tube.

I use a windshield washer pump (12v with clips to a battery) I first made one for the wife to refill the washer fluid in the winter so she didn't have to get out of the car. It worked great for anti-freeze too
