Voted as one of the best inventions of the century by scientists, VELCRO® brand fasteners have had an illustrious past, and what a future!
It's been around probably as long as you have, but we bet you don't know how many ways it affects your life. From keeping athletic shoes on your feet, to anchoring equipment on NASA's space shuttle, VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners have provided simple solutions to fastening, storage and organization problems for over 40 years. And some of the most innovative and interesting ways to use VELCRO® brand fasteners aren't listed on the package - they're devised by do-it-yourselfers inspired to use the product to make their lives better, simpler, or simply more fun!

Where in the world have we found VELCRO® brand fasteners?
In Upstate New York, a radio station held a contest for the best use of VELCRO® brand products. A class of third graders won by playing "Yankee Doodle Dandy" by opening and closing their shoes.
