I use black dye blutak. Way easier & acts as a sound dampening material.

And at Home Depot there's even a greater selection than before. Some is advertised as "industrial strength."

I went two different Rona stores, two different home depot stores and they didnt carry it, went to michael's (craft store) did not have it, went to my two closest staples and it was OOS, had to drive quite a bit to buy 4 measly pieces of velcro for $3.99 winksmiley02.gif

Sigh*


edit: nvm just opened the package to play with it, and i think this was totally worth those four bucks! this actually takes a little effort to pull apart XD

Is industrial strength velcro (Velcro brand) only related to the adhesive? I'm in the hardware store now and I'm trying to figure out if just the sticky back would be sufficient.

Edit; I wound up going with the general purpose stick back stuff.

When next I go for pads I'll buy a packet of each and find out the difference.

Velcro is great! And not just for mounting fans.
I use 10mm Black Velcro One Wrap Cable Tie Hook & Loop Strap for cable organizing.. both in and out of case.

Add stick on pads to secure to case as needed.thumb.gif

Nice... I might just do this for my scratch HTPC build so that there's no screw holes.
