    The headliner in my parents boat is held in place with a product a bit like Velcro... only it's not hook and loop... and it's MUCH stronger. I have a different application in mind, but am unable to find the name of the product... any suggestions?:?:

    Thanks Herman
    My 78 year old father managed to find it with google in about 5 minutes... took me an hour to find nothing!!;)

    It's called 3M Dual Lock... great stuff....
    As you say, their website(s) are a nightmare to navigate...

    Thanks Michael.... looks interesting - I could only fins a few slightly obscure references though in things like pop science and gizmodo... do you know if it's actually being made? ... And if so, by who?
