    I got some pretty tough stuff at Kmart, it's auto-strength. Came in a strip, about 3 feet of it.

    Hi, Free - I'd check Home Depot, Lowe's or Ace Hardware; if you can't find it there, go online and google for it. They do sell a heavy duty velcro at rehab supply places, but all that stuff is a total rip-off, it's so expensive.

    i know exactly the stuff you are talking about and sams club sells it. it is called industrial strength velcro and is fairly cheap. it comes in a large roll (15 feet i think) and retails for around $15. how much do you need? i have some left over i could send you if you only need a bit.

    OK, I KNOW that I wrote you a reply on this yesterday....I remember writing it, i even remember hitting post. but I don't see it...Hmmm... Anyway....Are you looking for the really heavy duty stuff that's more of a plastic/plastic velcro? as opposed to soft nylon loop... The best place to look for that stuff is to call a sign shop & ask where they buy it from. I know it's expensive & I believe Grainger supply carries it. Home Depot, Lowes, etc, don't carry the really heavy duty stuff like that. However a lot of sign shops use it especially if you're in an area that has a lot of conventions/special events. If you only need a small length of it, they may even be willing to give you a little bit of it. Hope this helps.

    I'm sure you'll be able to find the type of Velcro you're looking for here.
