Better than Velcro: Power Grip

        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

Velcro really has its place around a radio station - especially one that does lots of remotes. Is it possible that there is something better than Velcro out there? Power-Grip might just be it. Marketed to guitar players as a way to secure their effects pedals to a pedal board, it can be cut in strips and stuck on like Velcro. The adhesive is designed to be permanent, and the mushroom-shaped posts reportedly form a more secure bond than Velcro's hook and loop system.
