VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners are a convenient 
solution for damage-free decor

BOSTON – August 3, 2016 – The VELCRO® Brand today expanded its range of convenient solutions for home décor and organization with the introduction of VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners. The fasteners allow users to hang and mount photos, frames, wall décor and organizational items without the mess, residue or damage of nails, tape or traditional hanging solutions. 

“With styles and trends constantly changing, consumers want the flexibility of hanging and removing items with ease,” said Jurjen Jacobs, Vice President of Marketing and Innovation, Velcro Companies. “Our new VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners are ideal for decorating a dorm room, classroom, office space or forever home without fear of damaging walls. Our brand was founded to create solutions that make daily life easier, more convenient and simple and we’re thrilled to extend that promise with the availability of our new line of removable fasteners.”

VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners allow home décor enthusiasts to hang picture frames, mirrors, posters and more, without committing to a permanent placement. The fasteners are low-profile (for nearly flush mounting), easy to use, and simple to remove when it’s time to redecorate. The fasteners are sturdy and able to hold up to four pounds per set, peel off cleanly and won’t damage paint, drywall or other wall materials. 

New VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners come in a variety of shapes, including squares, rectangles, curves and corners—in sizes ranging from ¾ inch to three inches. The fasteners will be available at, and other retailers. 

VELCRO® Brand ambassador and lifestyle designer Sabrina Soto will be at #BlogHer16 Aug. 4-6 to demonstrate the many ways the new VELCRO® Brand HANGables™ Removable Wall Fasteners can be used for décor and organization.
