Velcro® Extreme


Take it to the next level.

This industrial–strength version of the old standby combines heavy–duty hook–and–loop surfaces with powerful self–stick backing that adheres to porous outdoor surfaces such as concrete, brick and stucco.

Lose the drill, hammer, nails, screws and epoxy.

All–weather adhesion (0°-175°); UV–resistant.

10 strips (each 4" x 1") for $5.99 here.

Note: also works indoors.


Addendum Monday, September 26:

After reading Bob's comment re: Polylock and its superiority over Velcro® I had the crack research team find a source.

You can buy 15 feet of Polylock (1"–wide) for $96.77 here.

Note that the price is approximately $6.50/foot, compared to $1.80/foot for Velcro® Extreme.

Worth it?

According to this link in Bob's comment Polylock holds five times better than Velcro®.

Your call.

I've lost track of the manufacturer and don't have time to do the rest of the research, but PolyLock beats any kind of Velcro. Ham Radio operators use it for attaching radio parts to auto interiors...rough duty. The stuff is expensive if you can find it, but well worth the price.

I have some of this stuff down in the basement. Despite the name, a good old strip of fabric velcro will beat it any day.
