Adhesive Cable Mounts for panels

As Splatz said, "I'm a tool junkie".
So, I'm FINALLY working on panels, and am trying to up my game. Looking at Reddit's Cable **** sub, I'm wondering if adhesive cable mounts are a viable, code-worthy, option to help keep a panel nice, tidy & pretty. And, if y'all honestly believe it's a bad idea, what options are available other than shoving wires to the sides & into corners and making nice 90 degree bends?

What say you boys in the field?

I don't like them. I always used Panduit channel. Comes in all sizes.
When I did use bases for tyraps I removed the adhesive pad with my knife and glued them down. Or like @Navyguy used the ones with a hole for a screw. The adhesive pads do not hold well.
But its channel for me. Yes, it takes up more space, but is easy to install and the result is much cleaner than tyraps and bases.

I'd like to see a photo of the Panduit method if you got one laying around in your phone

There are other manufacturers. Panduit is a trade name for most of us. Like we call side cutters Klein's.
Thx for the info, I've used this back in my low-volt days with Cat 3 & Cat 5e but never in a panel. Might try it
