Spring Steel hook and loop fastener

"Industrial strength"
  [vote for,

Instead of Nylon, use spring steel. The hooks and loops would be bigger, I suppose. Each side could be welded on to it's particular component, and then finally pressed together.

Extreme steel 'Velcro' takes a 35-tonne load [xaviergisz, Sep 06 2009]


       I think you are assuming we know what you are talking about. In my case at least, that is a wrong assumption.

       I think the idea is Velcro® made of steel for industrial applications.

       They have metal "Hook and Eye" fastners for dresses and bras and such. It's just one hook, and one eye, and you have to sew them onto the clothing individually. Is that what you're talking about?

       Sorry, Texticle. Hook and loop fastener is to vacuum cleaner, as Velcro is to Hoover. Any clearer? And what xaviergisz said.   

       ye_river_xiv, Hook and eye fasteners are similar, but hook and loop fasteners can be undone by mere mortals.
