What do you do with the sway bar after you disconnect the links?

So I bought sway bar disconnects and never got around to trying them/disconnecting them until the other day. I noticed that when they're disconnected, the sway bar is then free to move about....but then what? There is no where set place that holds it still. I found I had to rotate it all the way up and forward, then zip tie it down, just so it wouldn't interfere with the tires or other suspension components. Since I'm getting ready for some trails in a few days, I just took the entire front sway bar off.

Does anyone else run front sway bar disconnects, and if so, what do you do with the bar after disconnecting?

I believe a lot of guys tie it up like you suggested with zip ties but a few of us remove it and forget about it. The rear has a lot more sway when disconnected. solid axles sway more then an independent suspension I guess. I have seen people add straps to strap them out of the way.

Ya, it just seems like even with it strapped up, you still run the risk of hitting the mounts when flexing. I'll probably just leave it off for the time being. I haven't noticed much of a ride quality difference.
