Snake chain glue

Has any ever used snake chain in a build as a hose or something.

.I'm using it for phaser strips for a ship of mine and having a duce of a time trying to get them to glue down. Any ideas on what to use?

I need something that won't wish into the caps of the chain and fill in the details on me. Can doesn't seem to stick well on a test piece.

Depending on the chain style there may be a hollow through the center that you can run wire or cord through, then secure that to the part. I usually inset my ends so Gorilla rubber toughened CA works fine and doesn't wick into the chain very far.
