Use a band clamp wrapped around the connector and attach to an adel clamp. Mine currently is attached with zip ties but will make more permanent with the band clamp next time the cowl comes off.

These are nice connectors but the temperature specs listed here are not believable. Looks like multiple typos...

Looks like they missed the decimal points. Maybe -55.0C to +125.0C ?

The TE connectivity site agrees with -55 to 125C which is the same on the high end as the weather pack connectors that come with the SDS harness and better on the low temperature end. Weatherpack connectors are listed as -40 to +125C. It seems like they should work.
