I have a PS Audio Power Punch cable that I was using with an Arcam cd/dvd player and before that a Jolida cd player (both have IEC socket). The power cable started slipping/loosening from the back of the unit. I've replaced it with a lighter stock power cable, but I'd like to put the large/heavy cable back into use. I use a power strip for sources which sits on the floor. The cd/dvd player is on a shelf about 3ft above floor. Is there a simple fix to keep heavy cables from disconnecting, loosening or moving under its own weight?

It my work?
Thanks! I had not opened that thread. With just one heavy cable for my digital source, I should be able to come up with something similar but simpler.
I use glass tape, it works great. Just wrap the part that goes in and trim off the excess at the tip.
I have a few of those same PS Audio cables, it also helps if you can find a way to support the weight so it dose not hang.
I use cable ties and strap it to a collum or shelf.
Wrap the end of the IEC connector with Oatey FASTape heavy-duty PTFE Teflon tape available from Home Depot. You can achieve a very snug fit, but slippery enough to be inserted into the IEC inlet without issue.
