if you have a spare hanle bar or even a peice of pipe you can mount the 
master onto it so you can garentee that the bleed bolt is at the highest 
point. if you want to use the hold the lever down method use a small bungee 
cord that way as the air bleeds out the lever will collapse towards the 
handle bar and the bungee will still apply pressure, the zip tie wont 
cintinue to put pressure on the lever
