Dual lock fasteners

Anyone know where to buy those velcro like fasteners used on the headlight protectors and other plastic to plastic apps? They are made by 3m and I can't find anyone that retails them. They are online but you have to buy a box for like $100!! I only need about four square inches or four dots. I have tried local m/c shops, home depot, lowes, radio shack, arts and craft shops, upholstery shops. No luck.

Re: Dual lock fasteners

I'm surprised that Radio Shack didn't have any, as I've purchased several packages there, in the past.

Re: Dual lock fasteners

I know for a fact that RadioShack, Home Depot, and Lowe's all sell them. The problem is finding them. And I've yet to find a "sales assistant" that could locate them for me. You have to find them for yourself.

Re: Dual lock fasteners

Target has a pretty good selection. I found some "clear" dual lock that I am using to secure a Laminar Lip. The key to the 3M adhesive is only apply it above 70 degrees and let it sit for 72 hours before putting a load on it and it will never let you down.

Re: Dual lock fasteners

I just bought the strips from Radio Shack a few days ago. I also ordered the round ones from Laminar Lip Company.
