Velcro Lapel

Velcro Lapel

This picture shows the panel bottom Velcro and the top Velcro. The lapel is simply folded over the panel to button it up.

Also take note of the slim profile of the panels junction box compared to my fingers. When stowed beneath a berth cushion you are barely able to discern a bump in the foam. This is a very nice feature for a 125W panel. There are also no sharp edges to scratch a beautifully varnished interior!!

other sizes: small medium large original

What is the preferred brand/type of hook and loop sticky tape? Standard hardware store Velcro, which uses a rubber-based adhesive) or one of the 3M products with acrylic adhesive (3M TB3571/TB3572)? Some are better for high temperatures and/or moisture.

Do you recommend using stick on velcro or stitching it to the panels? Bruce Schwab's site says both, but I wonder if that's unnecessary overkill.
