    I need some double-sided velcro that sticks on both sides. It is for a case light i need to move, and besides, i may need for future projects. Anyone know where i can buy some?

    If you go to Home Depot or Lowes, there are things called Double sided Latch hook tape.. Its what Carpenters and decorators use to hook things up instead of using nails or liquid nail... It's the best thing to use, but could cost... They also have double sided tape for ya if you think thats the way to go... but the latch hook design can hold a lot more then any double sided tape would.. Meaning you'd use less latch hook then you would double sided tape

    Most Hobby or Craft stores also have it, available in spots, squares and strips.

    There are a number of different strengths of 3M Velcro. If you are just attaching lights use the lightest...the industrial stuff is handy for mounting pumps or other larger items. It makes a decent "decoupler" too in terms of reducing noise. I love it. That and Blue Tape...

    Lowes. I like the industrial stuff that's 2" wide. I just cut patches of that...I bout the largest amount I could years ago and still have it.

    Home Depot too...or you could prolly source it online
