KLAPiT Replaces Picture Hanging Velcro Tape

Use Of Velcro Tape As Picture Hanging Tape

Use Of Velcro Tape As Picture Hanging Tape
Velcro Tape has a hook on one side and a loop on the other

It was an old method to use Velcro Tape  to hang a piece of art without making holes in the walls. Velcro Tape has two parts. It has a hook on one side and a loop on the other. Usage of Velcro tape is simple. Attach the looped side of the Velcro tape to the wall. Similarly, attach the hooked side to the picture that is to be hanged. While using Velcro tapes on walls you need to use a minimum of 3 strips of Velcro double sided tape. Double sided Velcro tape prevents damages to the wall due to drilling.

Problems in using Velcro Tape

  • In a Velcro tape there are hundreds of hooks that need to interlink with the loops. In order for the Velcro Tape to carry the desired weight, all of these hooks need to be interlocked. While hanging a picture frame, it is impossible for you to see that all the hooks are interlocked. If all the hooks in the velcro tape are not interlocked, the picture may fall.
  • Velcro Tapes available in the market are usually big. Moreover there are usually 3 or 4 tapes that need to be attached to the picture, even if the weight is much lesser than the claimed weight. Pictures may not have enough space to attach all the velcro tapes.
  • While hanging a picture, if you don't press the picture frame at all the places where velcro tapes are used, the picture may fall. This happens because some of the hooks may not have been interlocked with the loops.
  • Often, after hanging the picture you realize it is not exactly vertical. The picture then needs to be slightly adjusted. Velcro tapes do not allow any kind of adjustment of the pictures, once these are hung.
  • Velcro Tapes have a very weak peel-off strength. Therefore, velcro tapes are unable to hold projected objects such as wall clocks, shelves, pen holders, key holders, etc.
  • The hooks in the velcro tape are made of plastic. These may weaken and break over time or after multiple installations of your picture. This may cause the picture to fall after some time.

How KLAPiT Replaces the Picture Hanging Velcro Tape?

Before hanging a picture or any piece of art, consider its weight. If the item holds a weight above the capacity of the Velcro tape, then we need an alternative solution. KLAPiT is the best alternative for that. KLAPiT acts as a double sided tape  which does not require any drilling or holes on your walls. The philosophy and design principles of KLAPiT for hanging extra-large wall decors remain the same as for Velcro. However, KLAPiT uses the best 3M VHB adhesive and the power of Super Strong NED Magnet that makes it the best solution for drill free hanging.

    The steel strips leave no adhesive behind upon complete removal. This makes KLAPiT perfect for application in houses, office, dorms, and other rented buildings where the wall condition must be maintained
    KLAPiT is made of steel and hence will not weaken over time.Each pair of steel strips and a magnet is designed to hold up to 500g of weight. If you find your art piece weighs more then use one more KLAPiT at the other horizontal or vertical end. You can easily calculate the number of KLAPiTs required to hang any object. You need 2 KLAPiTs for every 1 Kg weight. For Velcro tapes, we need to use 2-3 strips of Velcro double sided tapes for the same.
    Most double-sided and Velcro Tapes are designed and tested for their strength of holding objects horizontally. KLAPiT is uniquely designed and tested for holding objects up to weights of 500 grams, vertically on the walls.
    KLAPiT is designed and tested with a range of products including but not limited to Photo Frames, Wood and Metal Craft, Television/AC remote controls, Pen-holders, Clocks, Power strips, Shelves, Tissue holders, Power Adapters, Key-holders etc; in principle, anything with a strong, flat and clean surface.
    Once you hang your picture frame, clock, shelf or any other object using KLAPiT, you can adjust it so that it looks perfect.
    While hanging with KLAPiT, you only need to press the the steel tapes on the wall and on the product. Once the two steel tapes are firmly installed, you don't need to press the product against the wall. The super strong NED magnet will pull the product to the wall.
