I think this is the other thing I have on hand. A buddy gave me most of a roll of it about five years ago. I still use it from time to time and its adhesive qualities are still GREAT.

If it is what I think it is, both halves are the same shape. That is, it's not hook on one side and loop on the other. The two halves interlock. To do so they have to be made symmetrically, meaning the two pieces of tape always line up straight with one another.

An incidental thing about magnets is that they are best at not being pulled straight apart. That leaves them susceptible to being slid apart. That is, their pullout strength is much stronger than their shear strength.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
