Velcro has become a simple yet very effective invention that many people have come to rely on. Whilst it is not something you are likely to think about on a day to day basis, people probably use it more than they realise. From clothes to DIY it has a range of different purposes that can help to make life that little bit easier.
Children in particular are likely to find Velcro very helpful because it can assist them with things such as putting their shoes on. If they haven’t learnt how to tie their shoelaces yet then shoes with Velcro straps are a lot more convenient because they can still put their shoes on and take them off without any hassles. This is also more reassuring for parents because they then don’t have to worry that their children are going to trip over their laces because they can’t tie them up when they come undone.
A lot of people prefer Velcro on their clothing instead of zips and buttons as well. This can be for a variety of reasons but on the whole, people find it quicker and easier. Rather than fiddling with buttons and zips trying to get something done up, Velcro is a lot quicker and less fiddly. Again, children will find it a lot easier to use Velcro as well as the elderly who might be very weak or have shaky hands.
