Clearly Tough windshields are mounted to your machine using heavy duty velcro straps. This occasionally raises some eyebrows. But it comes with an astounding number of benefits, and it is amazingly strong. Here is some of the history behind our choice in velcro and some of the reasons we stick with it.
Why did we decide to use velcro?
When we did our research to develop these windshields, we wanted to create one that was completely flexible and adjustable. We also wanted them to be durable and rugged. When it was suggested that we try velcro, we were nervous that the straps wouldn’t hold as tightly as traditional clamps and bolts would. We did not want to compromise the strength of the windshield. We ran several tests and side by side comparisons to determine if velcro had what it takes. Our results, the velcro bonds are so strong. The windshields attached with velcro consistently held up just as well in our strength tests as their bolted counterparts did. We found velcro to be the ultimate solution.

The velcro straps stand up to the test of strength. Velcro bonds are incredibly strong. Just how strong is it? Several sources claim 2 square inches of hook and loop can hold the hanging weight of a person weighing 175 pounds. Our own tests show that it is more than up to the task. Once you strap that windshield into place, you’ll have no worries about it going anywhere. Over years of use, velcro continues to hold the windshield snuggly in place.
