HOOK AND LOOP FASTENERS 

We buy all of our Hook and Loop from Halco which has a store in Northern California. Very fast delivery and every size and color we may need. Their product is all imported and is very low-cost comparatively.

History – How Hook & Loop Was Invented

The amazing discovery of Hook and Loop was first made in 1941 by a Swiss Engineer. During a walk in the country with his dog he noticed how difficult it was to detach the barbs (seeds) of the cocklebur plant from his clothing and his dog. The Swiss engineer also being an inventor took a closer look at this extraordinary plant. From this he observed that the seeds -sac was made up of tiny hooks which attached themselves to clothing fiber, animal hair and even human hair. Thus came about the invention of Hook and Loop, a simple but very effective fastening system now used throughout the world The essential principle of Hook & Loop Fasteners has remained the same. Hundreds of tiny hooks engage with loops to provide a recloseable bond. Today many versions of this original fastener exist providing different strengths, appearances and cycle life for countless applications.

Halco strives to provide a great engagement – just like the products we provide – with our Customers, Vendors, Employees and the wider community.
Our core purpose is to help manufacturers succeed by creating fastening systems that improve their products.
