Product Description

Product Description

An excellent way to secure single and stacked electronics and small kitchen appliances. These blocks combine two major components not available in the over-the-counter industrial velcro products: One is a thick cushion pad to offset the feet of your equipment and raise the level up by 3/8" to allow your equipment to vent and move with the motion not against it. the second is ridged arrowhead gripping barbs which are the "hook" that grabs the loop. Applied with a simple peel & press application, the blocks are hidden from view. Each box contains 8 blocks which is enough for 2 items. It is non-damaging to finished furniture or equipment.

Worked for my application. No earthquakes yet, but the cats can't knock item off shelves.

By Healthy Cynic on December 24, 2014
I keep finding I need more and more earthquake tie/tack downs; seriously, a lot more. The few Quakehold items I bought are well made, but would cost me a fortune to use on everything. I'm sure the fastener blocks are swell, but $10 (Prime) is a lot for two items. Offsetting the foot makes little sense to me because my bottom vented electronics have feet higher than 3/8 inch already. The air flows nicely and the vents are seldom on all four corners where the blocks would be. Quakehold's loop and hook is slightly different, but 3M's Dual Lock proved equally strong in my stress test. I looped each product through a carabiner that held a heavy item just off the floor. I shoved the 150# plus weight around to replicate directional forces. It was terribly scientific. Properly installed adhesive tabs perform similarly for me so I didn't test that.

After reading glowing reviews by DIYers, I bought "3M Dual Lock Reclosable Fastener TB4575 Low Profile Black, 1 in x 10 ft (1 Mated Strip/Bag)" which was $17.12 (Prime). I find the 1" width makes it easier to avoid bottom vents on electronics altogether. A price comparison of the two products:
3M's 10 ft of 1 inch for $17.12 vs QH's eight 1.75 square inch blocks (a bit of a guess but very close) for $10.
The price for each 1.74 square inch block is 25 cents for 3M vs $1.25 for Quakehold.

Also, Quakehold says their product raises items so they "can vent." Electronics that vent through the bottom are normally already raised with feet so the air can flow. Those vents aren't usually on each edge where the blocks would fasten.

Living in big (potential) earthquake territory I can't give it 5 stars until after the fact. But I'm hoping that all the earthquake proofing and preparedness I've done is successful!
