Velcro for Pedals

I'm having a problem with the velcro adhesive liquifying over time when attached to a couple of BBE pedals, causing the velcro to separate from the pedal and making a huge mess. I have other pedals (Boss, Keeley, Fulltone), but don't have the problem with them. The BBE pedals don't seem to be running unusually hot so I'm not sure what's causing the problem. I checked the BBE website and the internet, but couldn't find anything that specifically addressed this issue.

The velcro I'm using is the type that comes with the Gator pedal boards. Is there a better quality velcro that I can use to eliminate the problem?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I have used it and it doesn't come off. It great for pedals and anything else you need to stay in place.

Thanks for the feedback. I receive similar advice from another member awhile back and found some industrial strength velcro. Not sure if it's the same kind you mentioned, but it seems to have solved the problem.
