Default Attaching velcro to wood

I'm trying to attach velcro to wood, but the sticky side(backside) of the velcro keeps peeling off the wood.

Any ideas on what to do?

Get some 8001 3M product. Apply some to both surfaces,let it get tacky and stick together and let dry.

Go to Lowes, they have an industrial strength that will stick to wood or concrete block!

Be safe and staple it down. Monel staples corrode just enough to get a good grip and will keep it tight. I used high strength velcro to hold the swimstep onto the bracket on the Jupiter.

Use polyurethane glue (Gorilla Glue or similar) if you can clamp the velcro. Wipe wood with acetone if using teak, then wipe wood and velcro with a moist towel, spread glue sparingly onto velcro, position onto wood, cover with wax paper (don't forget this step!), and clamp into place with a piece of wood to spread the force across the whole piece of velcro. You will rip the wood apart before you will pull the velcro off of it.
