New tool protects fasteners from lint intruders.

CRKT and Trip Felton are releasing their patented Hook & Loop Tool and many in the field are breathing easier. The dirt, fibers and debris that used to weaken their VELCRO® fasteners are now being eliminated.

The tool keeps the bond strong between the hook and loop with a simple brush design. A wire brush easily cleans items out of the hooks while a soft brush makes the loops easy to adhere to again. Small and compact, it fits nicely in a vest and can make a big difference when you have a fastener that’s in a not-so-sticky situation. Trip recalls the inspiration behind his tool.

“I was out in the wild, went to reach for my favorite tool and it was gone. All that was left was a loop patch filled with crud. I knew right then I needed to get to work.”

The Hook & Loop Tool helps your fastener keep you and your important things together in the field.

The Hook & Loop Tool manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $29.99.
