When you’re implementing PECS, you can never have too much self-adhesive hook and loop fastener. Having plenty of dots for making new pictures, and strips to expand a communication book, or replace worn old strips is essential. Extra hook & loop fasteners will always come in handy. Our variety of pack sizes will make it easy to top up your stores, and ensure you have enough self-adhesive hook and loop fastener to continue expanding communication tools and skills.
If ordering self-adhesive hook & loop fasteners for the first time, remember to check for compatibility with your other PECS products. It is typical to use strips on our communication books, insert pages and activity binders/boards, and dots on pictures.
Pack Sizes Self-Adhesive Hook or Loop Strips: 1 metre strips or roll of 50 metres.
Pack Sizes Self-Adhesive Hook or Loop Dots: packs of 20 or 100 dots, or roll of 1200 dots.
Please note: product brand may vary based on availability.
Still not sure about HOOKS and LOOPS? Some tips for those who are new to our products. It will be important to select one side of the fastener (either hook or loop) for your books/pages, and the opposite side for your pictures/symbols.
There are no strict rules for which side goes where, but consider the following:
- If your allied health professional has recommended using PECS, ask for their suggestion.
- If the individual using PECS is attending a childcare, school, vocational setting, match their system to ensure compatibility.
- At Pyramid, we typically use the ‘Hook on the Book’. The rhyme helps everyone on the team to remember to the system. We put the hook (hard/prickly) side of the fastener on books/pages and the loop (soft/fluffy) side of the fastener on the pictures/symbols.
