A place to learn about Everything in Hook and Loop!™
Do you have a project you're working on that involves hook and loop? Perhaps you're just considering using it. Whether you need sew on, adhesive backed, wide loop or straps, here are some questions you'll want to answer to find out if hook and loop is good for your application.
We use Velcro® brand fasteners and other hook and loop products every day. They've become so commonplace that we rarely consider what we did before its invention in the 1940s.
Consider an ordinary trip to your family physician. You'll likely have your blood pressure taken. Can you remember how the cuff was secured before Velcro® brand fasteners came along? Cuffs used to be tied or snapped into place, which doesn’t sound comfortable. If your doctor prescribes an arm or knee brace, how would you position it without the Velcro® brand fastener? Well, you would have to tie it in place which means you wouldn't have the versatility and adjustability we enjoy today with hook and loop braces and other VELCRO® Brand blood pressure cuffs.
