The Problem

Stitching Hook and Loop to soft goods can pose challenges. Like other narrow width fabrics, it can wobble or move around when sewn at high speeds. Slowing down to compensate for this kills productivity, and in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, time is money. Having to remove the stitches and resew due to miss placement is a common problem that contract sewers are experiencing. 

The Solution

Halco is pleased to introduce Tack Down, the Hook & Loop fastener which stays in place while you sew it on. Featuring an adhesive strip down the center which holds it in position, this innovative fastener can be sewn faster than Standard Hook & Loop in just about any width, color or profile. The Tack Down solution is suited for all sewable materials which include UBL fabrics, vinyls, and even neoprene.

We also offer a Flame Retardant version suitable for aerospace applications and thermal insulation.

Say Goodbye to Downtime.

Many cut & sew operations stitch full-width adhesive backed hook and loop for added strength. This creates a problem when the needles ‘gum up’ from repeated contact with the adhesive and the thread breaks from extreme tension.

Never again worry about gummed up needles! Tack Down’s unique design leaves a sewing channel along each side so you don’t have to stitch through adhesive.
