Note that soldering is not forbidden by ABYC, just having no other form of strain relief on a soldered connection IS.
You can solder two wires together and then form a loop in the wire, and apply cable ties.
Just to clarify..You can not do that and meet the ABYC standard.
Wire twisting, Western Union splices etc. do not count under ABYC E-11 as a "mechanical connection" to which you can then apply solder and call it a day....
