I'm installing new network cables in my house and at some points I have to fix them on door or wall corners. Can I use hot melt stick gun? Could that momentary heat be harmful to cable? I'm using good quality Cat6.

I doubt it but this sounds like a seriously suboptimal solution compared to purpose designed cable management. – Journeyman Geek Dec 28 '13 at 11:23
When you put the glue on the corners and gaps they are left behind so it looks very clean. However I agree with TomTom, when taken-off they tear off paint behind. – Bogac Dec 28 '13 at 13:24

Generally yes, you can do it. I would not though - sticky glue sucks to remove things. Any shop will have little clamps that you hammer into the wall on nails.
