The hook-and-loop feature makes for fast and easy attachment
About Our Hookit™ Attachment System
The Hookit™ hook-and-loop feature makes for fast and easy attachment, removal and re-attachment of Hookit™ abrasive sheets and facilitates use and re-use of individual sheets for high material cost efficiency. The facing surface on the Hookit™ Straightline Air File Shoe has J-shaped hooks that instantly grip the brushed nylon loops on our Hookit™ abrasives. It's simple: just slap the sheet on and start sanding. Sheets remove just as cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the extent of the abrasive life. The Hookit™ system is designed for work spaces where adhesive-backed sheets may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris.
