SEATING

Seat assembly with VELCRO® Brand fasteners is more cost-effective than with ring-and-wire or adhesives. They also reduce scrap and rework, while giving you more design flexibility. That's why hook-and-loop is so widely used to secure seat trim covers and, increasingly, for armrests and headrests, too.
