You can always "safety lace" a connection. Not sure what the industry term is, but every connection on an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle will be laced together with waxed cord. Even positively latching connectors. You start with a larks head, then make strategic stacked square knots from there. Comes apart with a pocket knife.

Ty-wraps or clips may work fine in an in-line connection between two cables, but I haven't seen a PowerPole fuse block from West Mountain Radio, PowerWerx, or Saratoga that would allow you to snake a ty-wrap around the connector in the fuse block to keep the mating connector from pulling out of the fuse block.
