Scotch Brand Launches New Extreme Fasteners for Home Improvement

Lock three times stronger than Velcro® Industrial Strength Fasteners*

ST. PAUL, Minn.--()--According to a study conducted by Houzz & Home1, more than half of homeowners are moving forward with renovation projects, with 42 percent motivated to improve storage, organization and efficiency. As a growing number of homeowners take on do-it-yourself projects, Scotch Brand is launching new Scotch Extreme Fasteners, tested and proven to lock three times stronger than Velcro® Industrial Strength Fasteners*.

Designed to withstand even the harshest conditions once bonded, such as rain, mud and dirt, Scotch Extreme Fasteners are reusable closures that feature 3M Dual Lock Technology that click together to secure heavyweight items up to ten pounds in place. They resist wear and tear to hold bulky and heavy items such as fire extinguishers, tool kits, light fixtures and more, to difficult surfaces in the home, garage, yard and boat.

“The new line of Scotch Fasteners was designed to give do-it-yourselfers peace of mind when mounting, securing and transporting items and equipment,” said Matt Callahan, marketing manager for 3M’s Construction and Home Improvement Markets division. “Scotch Extreme Fasteners equip homeowners with a reliable organization solution to help make heavy duty hanging and bundling projects easier.”

In addition to Extreme Fasteners, the full line of Scotch Fasteners includes Indoor Fasteners, Outdoor Fasteners, and Bundling Straps. Scotch Fasteners are available in Home Depot stores nationwide and range in price from $2.87 to $29.97. For more information, visit: Fasteners.ScotchBrand.com.
