The History of the Velcro PatentThe Velcro Company developed hook and loop fasteners over 60 years ago, and it represents one of the most innovative inventions of the 20th century. The history of the VELCRO ® Brand and its invention is a fascinating story that has made a wide range of products and services possible.
HookandLoop.com Installs Grommets in StrapsThe service technicians at HookandLoop.com install grommets into straps. Grommets are small rings -- usually brass -- that are punched through any number of materials: paper, canvas, leather, etc. The purpose of these metal rings is to protect the surrounding material from damage when cords or strings are run through the hole of the grommet. Think of the rings your shoe laces are fed through, only stronger. If the rings weren't there, the material would eventually wear out and tear.
