So, What is it?

3M fasteners are a strong—yet easily removable—fastening solution that can replace screws, bolts and rivets in your designs. The fasteners have hundreds of interlocking mushroom-shaped stems that audibly “snap” together to form a secure attachment and an adhesive backing that adheres to your substrate.

Why Should I Use it

3M fasteners give you more flexibility in your designs than ever before. They are quickly and easily adjusted, realigned or reattached. The fasteners leave your product with clean, smooth lines—free of interruptions or holes.

How Can it Be Used

Versatile and flexible, 3M fasteners provide endless application possibilities. Use them for everything from securing a toll transponder to fastening access panels to assembling POP displays. The fasteners are available in three stem densities to provide varying fastening strengths for your applications.
