Default Securing outside faucets

I am wondering what you do to secure an outside faucet when there seems to be a lack of solid materials? With all the cheap construction out there, someone has to have a awesome solution to the problem. Its a wonder these houses don't blow down with no plywood sheathing.

I do sometimes slid a piece of plywood under the siding, if it is possible without creating a bulge. Have been considering sheet metal, but. Then there is always cutting siding, installing a j-block and then putting the faucet back on. But with the goal to keep prices and work comparable, I am looking for a better way.

If I'm working on an outside faucet, 9 times outta 10 I'm replacing it. I always work from the inside out so securing the faucet is no big deal.

If its flapping in the wind when I get there and the outside wall is that crappy fiberboard I can't help them if there is no access to it from the rear. If I can get to it I ether use a stout bracket to secure or a ring clamp up tight against the wall if that works better like with block

I use silicone, duct tape and Mighty Putty. Awesome combination.

I the WB has a clamp you can attach to the pipe on the inside like for bonding an electrical ground then has 2 screws you tighten to pull it in. really depends on the job.
