An attachment assembly for releasably attaching an object such as a wire bundle to a surface such as on the firewall of an automobile. The assembly comprises a flexible polymeric strap, fastener portions adapted for releasable engagement attached at the ends of the strap which can secure the strap around an object, and attachment means comprising a layer of pressure sensitive adhesive along the strap for attaching the strap to a surface. The fastener portions are positioned or attached so that forces applied by the object tending to separate them place interacting parts of the fastener portions in shear or tension rather than in peel.
