    Unless I'm missing something obvious, that's going to place the cable in tension so making it inclined to pull out of the hard drive.

    Good idea though.

    Most sata cables have clips on them which you have to push to release. Some cables without clips require alot of effort to pull out.

    Yeah it seems like a decent idea, don't think the tension would be enough to cause any real trouble.
