Close up look – 3M Command hanging strip

We bought a couple of 3M Command Brand Damage-Free hanging crochets (Product number 17201C for Canada) for hanging some dry-erase whiteboards. Immediately noticed its design is different than regular Velcro, so a closer look is needed on the material and catching mechanism. Let’s magnify the strip and check it out!

The Product

There are 6 strips total in a package which makes 3 double sided strips, still puzzling on why the odd number? It looks like all 6 strips are identical, including the pattern.
