headers wrap tape question

I was wondering what is the trick to have them stay on? Will I have to use any high-temperature epoxy or what? I was thinking to use them to prevent compressor of my Stebel horn from overheating, but I do not know what is involved in putting them on?

You can use stainless hose clamps, stainless zip ties made just for this application (summit racing) or the old fashioned super stinky method of just wrapping some quality duct tape around them at the top & bottom. The duct tape melts into the weave & holds them in place pretty much indefinitely...

I have used a few wraps of safety wire as well with good results.
Just fold the ends of the header wrap under itself before tying it up.
