If you have 8 wires, perhaps different gauges and insulation thicknesses, a 
single bar holding them all is going to have a problem exerting equal pressure. 
 I could put a strip of rubber on it I guess.  Or multiple bars.

It holds tighter than a zip tie.  You definitely can't pull the cable out of a 
transtector without shredding the jacket.
I'm not going to try and tell you it's better.  A simple/cheap way is also 
better.  Depends on who the buyer is.

  I can do the piece of metal too.  But is it that much better?

  Better is subjective.  Your way is simple and cheap, and that might be better.

  Some rely on a properly tightened cable gland.
  Transtector has a a half-u piece of metal secured by a screw....like a 1 hole 
conduit strap.

    I am making a new tower mount multiple circuit surge protector.
    This one is for multiple higher current DC power circuits/ conductors only.

    Trying to come up with a good way to allow the wires to be secured.
    Right now I have a series of rectangular slots in the PCB so a zip tie can 
be passed down behind the board and back up.  

    Any better ways?
