3M Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fasteners are a good replacement for screws, bolts, and rivets. With their strong adhesive backings and mushroom-shaped stems that snap together, they form a secure attachment on a variety of substrates. They are easy to readjust, realign, or reattach and provide smooth, clean lines. These Fasteners are best used for mounting lighter-weight objects on flat or curved surfaces.
Graphics are often mounted on a variety of different substrates like foam board or aluminum. Hook and Loop fastening technology is suitable for fast graphics installation, removal and replacement. Match the type to size and weight of the installed graphic for best results.
