You’ve invested in your tools for a reason. Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference. But if you can’t find it, it’s not very useful. Mounting levels and other large tools to the walls with VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength Tape can be a lifesaver. No more digging through piles of tools to find what you need.

 

2. You’ve got the power.

How many times a day do you reach for a small tool like a tape measure? A screwdriver? A ruler?  Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to rummage through the kitchen junk drawer to find them? Mounting those well-used small tools on your workbench with VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength Tape can save you time every single day. You will never again try to tighten a Phillips head screw with a flat head screwdriver because it was the only one you could find.

 

4. Conquer that tangled mess with ease.
