The firewire cable seems to be a friction lock which makes me feel pretty secure.
i have trouble with both ports..i partially blame the InCase skin i have on my Macbook..
Every un-locked cable in my rig (all FireWire) is secured by thin (1/2" x 3") strips of gaffers tape (PermaCel or Tour Supply Inc.)... the computer, the HDD and the Ensemble or Onyx I/O ports. It's inelegant... but it holds for all but the most determined yank, more than adequate for my needs. Using "real" gaff tape insures there are no nasty bits of adhesive remaining after the gig... unless you leave it up for a couple of days.
FWIW, I also gaff the MagSafe power connection as well...
