Any tips/tricks for bringing a bundle of 24 Cat 6 cables through a drop ceiling?

I'm running cat6 through an office with drop ceilings today, and the owner is squeezing out every inch of floorspace to fit in more employees.  So the 24-Port patch panel will be wall mounted in a corner below a drop ceiling.  This is my first time having to worry about having a ceiling tile being above my network cable bundle coming out of the patch panel.  Anyone have any ideas or best practices for this?  I have a Lowes & a Home Depot nearby.  I was thinking of buying a short 4" PVC piece and cutting it in half, running the cable bundle through that, and somehow mounting that to the wall, then cutting a half circle out of the ceiling tile to fit against it.

Anyone have a better idea?
