Default Wiring attachment inside acoustic guitar

I have a Larrivee with a K&K bridgeplate pickup and soundhole preamp. The internal wiring was routed/secured using tape-mounted wire clips. The foam tape on the clip has failed, leaving the wiring dangling (with the loose clip still attached) inside the instrument.

So I have two questions:

1) Should I assume I just got a bad foam tape clip and use another one like it, or is there a better way to route and secure wiring inside the instrument? Can I safely put new foam tape on this one, or a dot of glue or something?

2) I don't know where this clip was stuck on before it fell off. I assume I should avoid sticking it onto the underside of the top, but does it matter whether I attach it to the back or to the side?

IMO the best thing out there is 3M dual-lock with PSA backing.

It's backed with a public service announcement? Gee, I wouldn't want that. It might start talking in the middle of a performance.

Thanks, I'll check it out.
