3M™ Reclosable Fasteners

In addition to products that offer permanent bonds, 3M has several alternatives to mechanical fasteners and adhesives for removable, serviceable and accessible applications.


Solutions that stand up against traditional fasteners

Attachment is changing: new substrates, lower weight requirements and easy panel replacement are just a few of the challenges manufacturers are facing. Make 3M part of your solution.

    In addition to permanent attachment solutions we have detachable bonding options for access panels, hatches, removable panels and other situations that require a firm hold with the option to separate. Eliminate screws, nuts and bolts and achieve a clean aesthetic look.

    • “Behind the scenes” hold for improved aesthetics
    • Lightweight alternatives to metal fasteners
    • Simple to apply, use and maintain
    • Variety of strengths to fit your project needs
    • Flexibility to fit your designs — even the most constricted areas
    • Ability to join dissimilar materials
    • Eliminate holes to reduce risk of corrosion and stress points
    • Vibration damping and security – no loosening or failing attachments
    • Durable for repeated opening and closing – hundreds or thousands of times

Product Categories

  • Five times stronger than conventional hook and loop, 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fasteners offer easy separation and the virtually invisible aesthetic of a hidden fastener. Because they snap and lock into place, you also get the security, ease and convenience commonly associated with metal fasteners.

  • Resilient for thousands of easy openings and secure closings, with durable hooks on one side and pliable loops on the other. 3M™ Hook and Loop Fasteners provide tight closure and easy-peel opening for everyday uses like signs and displays. Available in different colors and can attach to a variety of substrates.
