Default Free Velcro

I have been doing this for a while and it is extremely nice stuff. I have an EZ-Pass (toll pass) and the velcro that comes with it is extremely strong. Go to any toll booth, or the toll booth personnel on the thru-way (you know the little gas and food stops) and just tell them you need more. They have tons of the stuff. In my 08 WRX that is how I mounted the Cobb AP and it never came undone, even when I sold the car I could not get the stuff off. This is an easy way to be able to get some velcro if you need some and just keep it with you to use for small projects.

This stuff is actually called "dual-lock", it is not the same as velcro.
Both sides are the same (think hook-hook instead of hook-loop), it is much stronger than velcro and is best for things you won't be removing/replacing often but do want to be removable and don't want to drill holes for.

That's not pathetic! Why not get something back from the people that charge you to travel through this wonderful land of America! No shame in that!

Dual Lock is great,...it's $77.00 a box

one of my guys used an 8" strip and was able to support himself on the wall from it

expect it to be around 1/4 thick with both sides measured, also the adhesive is very aggressive and will remove paint once cured
