What Is A Hook And Loop Patch?

A hook and loop patch is a common fastening device consisting of two interlocking components: a strip with small hooks (hook) and a strip with small loops (loop). By pressing these two strips together, they adhere to each other, providing a secure connection that can be easily separated.

This type of fastening is convenient and is used in clothing, hats, shoes, backpacks, outdoor gear, and various other items, making them easier to wear and use.

How do hook and loop backing patch works?

 Hook-and-loop patches involve two interlocking strips. One strip has a small hook fastener, while the other strip has small loops. When these two strips come close together, the hooks and loops catch onto each other, creating a tight connection. This design allows the patches to easily adhere to each other while also being relatively easy to separate.

The specific steps are as follows:

  1. Alignment: Bring the strip with hooks close to the strip with loops, allowing the small hooks and loops to interlock.
  2. Pressing: Apply some pressure to enhance the tightness of the connection between the hooks and loops.
  3. Connection: The interlocking hooks and loops maintain the patches together, fulfilling the desired fastening or connection function.
  4. Separation: To detach the patches, simply exert some force to pull the two strips apart, causing the hooks and loops to release from each other and undo the connection.

Velcro Hook And Loop Difference

The terms “hook” and “loop” refer to the two complementary components of a hook and loop fastening system, such as the one commonly known by the brand name Velcro.


  • Structure: The hook fastener backing is characterized by tiny, stiff, and pointed protrusions.
  • Material: The hooks are typically made of a harder material, often plastic or a similar rigid substance.


  • Structure: The loop component consists of softer, fuzzier, and more flexible material.
  • Function: It provides the surface for the hooks to catch onto, creating a secure attachment.
  • Material: The loops are usually made of fabric, often with a pile or nap that allows the hooks to grip onto them.

How To Apply Hook And Loop Patches

Applying custom hook and loop patches involves a few simple steps:

  1. Choose the Placement: First, identify the location where you want to place the hook and loop patches. This could involve specific areas on a hat, backpack, clothing, or other items.

  2. Clean the Surface: In the area where the patches will adhere, ensure that the surface is clean. Remove any dust, dirt, or other substances that might affect adhesion, ensuring that the hook and loop can attach securely.

  3. Attach the Hook Part: Affix the side with the hook to the chosen location. Ensure that the hook part is firmly attached to the surface.

  4. Attach the Loop Part: Affix the side with the loop to another chosen location, aligning it with the hook part. Make sure the loop part adheres tightly as well.

  5. Apply Pressure: Apply some pressure to the attached area to ensure that the hook and loop are securely combined. This helps increase the strength of the fastening.

  6. Wait for Fixation: Sometimes, depending on the specific product instructions, you may need to wait for a certain period to ensure that the hook and loop patches are fully bonded and can provide a stable connection.

How To Put Velcro On A Patch?

Here are the steps for putting Velcro on a patch:

  1. Preparation: Make sure you have a strip of Velcro, with one side having hooks and the other side having loops. Typically, one side has small, rigid hooks, and the other side has soft loops.

  2. Identify Placement: Determine the location on your patch where you want to attach the Velcro. This could be on clothing, a backpack, a hat, or another item.

  3. Clean the Surface: In the area where you’ll be attaching Velcro, ensure the surface is clean. Remove any dust, dirt, or substances that might affect adhesion.

  4. Measure and Cut: Use a ruler or straight edge to measure the length of the Velcro strip. Then, use scissors to cut it to the desired size. Ensure a neat cut so that the Velcro fully covers the corresponding area of the patch.

  5. Attach the Hook Side: Begin by sticking the side with hooks onto the back of the patch. Make sure the Velcro is evenly applied, covering the entire area of the patch.

  6. Attach the Loop Side: Next, affix the side with loops onto the chosen item, ensuring it aligns perfectly with the hook side. Gently press to ensure secure adhesion.

  7. Wait for Fixation: Depending on the type of Velcro used, you may need to wait for a period to ensure the Velcro is securely fixed to both the patch and the item.
