This YouTube channel highlights how the user uses DuraGrip brand products to hold his concealment platforms in place for his firearms.

This is another great channel that occasionally highlights hook and loop applications. It's actually pretty clever and very informative as it shows you how to sew hook and loop in any fabric.

DirtFarmerJay doesn't post many videos about hook and loop, but the one above shows you how to clean your hook and loop, making it good as new. You may have a favorite dog vest or some other item that collects a lot of hair or debris in the hook side.
