What is a self-gripping fastener? The self-gripping fastener is made up of two parts: A gripping part made up of elements shaped like hooks, mushrooms or harpoons. Various technologies are used in their manufacture weaving, extrusion or injection moulding. An opposing part made up of loops. Various technologies are used in their manufacture weaving, knitting or non-woven. Closure is obtained by pressing the two parts together: the gripping part penetrates the loop. On opening, the hooks open and release the loop.

Outstanding value. Customer service is unparalled and product performs flawlessly. Lloyd G.
