If you use a cable remote release get some Velcro fastening and use it to hold the control unit in place during long exposures. It is better than the remote just hanging down which might cause tension on the connections or, if the wind is strong, cause the release to bang against the tripod and blur your images. This arrangement is only for temporary holding of the remote release during exposure and is not advised to hold the release in place when you carrying the tripod around.
