The Complete Guide to Hook and Loop Tapes

Hook and loop, commonly known as Velcro tape, is a fastener system that is found in many of our everyday items without us even realising it. You can find them on shoes, bags, wallets, clothes, watch straps, and in discreet places like underneath your sofa cushions, to keep them in position.

As good things come in pairs, the hook and loop requires two parts to work. The hook is the rougher side which has hundreds and thousands of tiny plastic inverted j-hooks. The loop is the soft side with many tiny pliable napped loops. When both sides are pressed together, the hooks will latch onto the loops and become securely fastened. They are easily separated by peeling them apart and when doing so, it often makes a distinguished “tear” sound.

The fasteners are available in many forms but the most convenient way to get it is in the form of tape. There are different types that you can find in the market depending on what you want to use them for.
