AbstractA cable support apparatus and method. The cable support apparatus includes at least two substantially rigid cable support sections and an elongated flexible member configured and adapted to interconnect the at least two rigid cable support sections to form a flexible junction between the at least two substantially rigid cable support sections. Preferably, the flexible member is bendable, by hand, in at least one of a vertical and a horizontal direction to a selected set configuration. An alternative cable support apparatus includes a rigid spine member and a plurality of cable support members configured and adapted to be selectively mounted to specific locations along the length of the rigid spine member via a snap-fit type engagement. The method of installing includes providing the rigid cable support section and at least one article support member and selectively coupling at least one article support member to the cable support section.
