Hook and Loop Fasteners

26.2.2019 | | Seen: 787x
Hook&Loop Fastener is a well-known fastener material that you will encounter in various garments but also in footwear. Do you know that it is also used in the production of a quiet book?


Hook and Loop Fastener consist of two components: typically, two lineal fabric strips (or, alternatively, round "dots" or squares) which are attached (sewn or otherwise adhered) to the opposing surfaces to be fastened. The first component features tiny hooks, the second features smaller loops. When the two are pressed together the hooks catch in the loops and the two pieces fasten or bind temporarily. When separated, by pulling or peeling the two surfaces apart, the strips make a distinctive "ripping" sound.







OUR TIP: Getting the Fuzz Out

The hook side of the fastener has a strong affinity for the fuzzy loop side. Unfortunately, that affinity also attracts a range of items. Over time, the hooks can collect lint, string, hair and other unsightly debris. The best technique for cleaning large sections of hook and loop is to comb the debris out from the hooks. There are many objects suitable for combing hook and loop including pins, needles, seam rippers, staples, hairbrushes etc.

What to watch out for

  • it can wear out (with each opening the eyelets are breaking) and after many openings the connection may not be solid and reliable
  • the hooks can be clogged with other material and if not removed, the zip becomes inoperable
  • if the hooks capture other material, they can damage it (eg. when washing)
