Did you know that our products have been to the moon and back for over 50 years?
From the technology that helped launch us to the moon to the connections we make every day, VELCRO® Brand products have been making lives easier, one connection at a time. Our technology used for the lunar landing helped inspire the very same VELCRO® Brand technology we see today…
Customized and suitable for the temperature and gravity challenges of outer space, the original jam-proof fasteners used in space travel were lightweight and flexible, allowing astronauts to secure key items in zero-gravity environments within space modules. Nearly all items within American spacecraft featured VELCRO® Brand fastening solutions that enabled astronauts to secure instruments (and even things like writing utensils and bags of food) without them floating away.
VELCRO® Brand products are infused with the same space-tested technology that provides consumers with endless possibilities, grounded in everyday life. From organizing garages with VELCRO® Brand EASY HANG™ straps and securing equipment for concert world tours with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® ties, to keeping tools within reach thanks to VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength tapes, VELCRO® Brand continues to innovate to make life easier.
Our latest video with Walk Off the Earth pays homage to the ingenuity and versatility of the VELCRO® Brand fasteners that helped make the moon landing possible by using VELCRO® Brand hook and loop throughout the reimagined “Walking on the Moon” music video, including VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength tapes, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® straps and VELCRO® Brand EASY HANG™ straps, for costumes, props and a custom hook and loop wall, which enabled band members in astronaut-inspired space suits to suspend themselves and instruments to simulate zero gravity.

Use them to hang everything from bikes, golf clubs, and sporting equipment to hoses, ladders, suitcases and more.
Celebrating 50 years!
As you may have seen across our social channels, on July 20th Velcro Companies celebrated the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. As one the few brands that “were there” when that ‘giant leap for mankind’ took place, we celebrated in a BIG way – hosting several giveaways, Lunar Landing events, and even dishing out some space-themed trivia!
