    I don't know about others, but mine have velcro. They came with the machine.

    Mine is on with some type of tape ... looks like that packing tape you can't tear. Can you replace the velcro?

    They also sell carpet tape that is really strong, but I would probably just replace the velcro.

    depends on the thickness of your board, I would get some of those orange oversized clamps and use those OVER the Velcro

    I also used duct tape (purple!). It has not budged at all.

    I have velcro now but I do believe the painters tape I was using before held better. Painters tape won't leave the gooey stuff behind like duct tape does.
