    I just bought a new mini lightbar, and was wondering if i could use velcro to mount it to my roof.

    The question is WHY??? Get the magnet mounts and or the suction cups. Don't mess up your paint job with the adhesive that Velcro has on it. You'll be looking at a new paint job. The only velcro that will hold would be the industrial type that actually locks in and I'm pretty sure that it won't hold much over 50 mph for any length of time. Velcro wears out. Magnets don't.

    I don't think he was using duct tape either! Looked like the bar was held on by wire ties! What a mess!

    when i first got my backrack, i didn't have time to permanently install the light so i just used the magnetic mounts on top of it. not much to hold onto there. i would take it off and toss it in the toolbox when i was driving on major roads. one time i forgot that it was there, took a ride into boston, and after about 10 seconds on the pike, the light flew off the backrack and was dangling from the chord over the rack in my bed. its permanently mounted now
