    Default Where can I buy heavy duty velcro ?

    Friends,
    Need help.

    I went to Art Friend and got a strip of velcro (one side has glue and the other side has velcro) but the damn thing doesn't work. The side that has glue sticks well, but the velcro is too weak (sorry, don't know the right term to use ).

    I just need to 'stick' two pieces of thick cardboard using the velcro. (ok, I can't use a double sided 3M tape because I would like to take apart the cardboard pieces from time to time...)

    Any idea where I can get some heavy duty velcro ?

    Many thanks, in advance.

    Get the "Velcro" branded velcro. It is the original one. I think it is available at home fix where i got mine last time(tanglin branch).
