Hook and Loop Tape is the Duct Tape of Interior Home Projects
Hook and loop tape was invented by a Swiss engineer named George de Mestral, who patented his amazing product in 1955. The inspiration for this material, commonly known as Velcro, were the burrs that stuck to his dog’s fur with tiny “hooks” which de Mestral reproduced in hook and loop tape. Velcro is used for countless purposes, and you can buy Velcro in bulk online from Feiner Supply. Here are some ways to use it.
Organize Closets Inexpensively
Do you have a closet filled with things like gift wrap, craft supplies, and holiday decorations? You can staple strips of the “hook” part of the Velcro to the wall, and stick bits of the fuzzy part to gift wrap rolls and other lightweight items to secure them in place. Small tools and supplies can be attached to and detached from walls easily this way, helping you make the most of your space.
Mount Tablet Computers Quickly and Easily
There are all sorts of places in your home or vehicle where tablet computers are useful, and you can mount them easily by attaching the fuzzy side of Velcro to the back of the tablet to attach to the hook side that you’ve mounted to walls, counters, or seat backs. Need to be able to read an online recipe easily? Mount your tablet on the kitchen wall behind your counter and it’s handy and out of the way.
Make Floors Safer
Wood floors are terrific, but most people put down rugs for comfort and to “tie together” décor themes. Unfortunately, smaller rugs are prone to slipping, but you can remedy this with Velcro on the bottoms of rugs and on floors so nobody has to worry about skidding along a freshly waxed floor after stepping on a rug.
Keep a Supply on Hand for Users as You Think of Them
There are nearly infinite uses of Velcro for organizing and creating arts and crafts. When you buy Velcro in bulk online, you’re sure of having a sufficient supply when ideas strike. At Feiner Supply, we sell Velcro and related products directly to you at great prices.
