Molded Plastic, Nylon Coil, Metal Zipper Material Comparison

Which Zipper Material Should I Choose?

One of the most important characteristics of a zipper is the material of the zipper teeth—whether Molded Plastic, Nylon Coil, or Metal, each material of zipper teeth has its own advantages and ideal uses. Molded Plastic materials is flexible and lightweight. Nylon Coil is very flexible and durable because of the “coiled” tooth design, allowing it to withstand more horizontal strain. Metal is very durable and eye-catching with many options (aluminum, antique brass, antique silver, brass, golden brass, gunmetal and nickel). Best for straight seams as they are not as flexible, and less suited to horizontal stress.

Do you have 12" separating zippers ? Shorter ones too?

Can you make a 1-way jacket zipper into a 2-way?

A:
No, the teeth on a one way zipper chain will not allow for the proper operation of two sliders. You would need a two-way chain which are specially designed for 2-way operation.

Can I use the reversible zipper pulls on the molded plastic separating zippers? How do I go about it? If I remove the plastic stopper at the top, can they be replaced? Thank you!

A:
Yes, you can add the reversible slider to a regular zipper to make it a reversible zipper. You would remove the top stop, take the old style slider off and replace it with the reversible slider. You would need to replace the top stop with a new one that is large enough to not allow the slider to slide off the zipper chain.

A coat that has a separating zipper, separates, while zipped? Does it need to be replaced or are there any tricks that my save this zipper? I thought about spraying with silicone spray...wondering if this would help? Thanks in advance.

It sounds as if the teeth on the zipper are not locking like they should. The zipper will need to be replaced.
Staff
  • logologo Staff
A:
Most likely needs a new slider if there are no teeth missing on the zipper. The old slider has been stretched out and no longer meshes the teeth together properly.
KELLIE K.
A:
It is also possible that the slider has experienced metal fatigue, meaning it is too wide open, and that is why the teeth aren't closing anymore. Squeezing it together somewhat with needle nose pliers can help. If that doesn't work, the slider alone can be replaced. Slide it out the top after breaking off the stop, then putting in the new slider and a new top stop. All much easier than replacing the zipper.

I have changed the slide first before tearing out a zipper.

I have found that replacing the pull will often fix the problem.

How do I make a zipper shorter?
Anonymous
Posting As
Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
First you must determine whether you are shortening a separating or a non-separating zipper. To shorten a separating zipper, work the slider to the bottom of the zipper. Using needle nose pliers, remove the 2 top stops. Using end nippers, shorten the zipper to the desired size by making a small cut between the teeth or across the coils on both sides of the zipper. Remove the excess zipper tape with scissors. Apply two new top stops and sew zipper into the article of clothing. To shorten a non-separating zipper, work the slider to the top of the zipper. Using needle nose pliers, remove the 1 bottom stop. Using end nippers, shorten the zipper to the desired size by making a small cut between the teeth or across the coils on both sides of the zipper. Remove the excess zipper tape with scissors. Apply the new bottom stop and sew zipper into the article of clothing.

Why do some zippers have the zipper slider on the left and others on the right? And which ones do we carry?
Anonymous

A:
We get this question every once in a while. Some believe that its female garments (left) vs male garments (right), however there seems to be a mix of both men’s and women’s garments that have left handed zippers. Several forums online point to an older way of dressing for royalty (mostly European). They would have a handmaiden dress them and the zipper being on the left side would mean it’s much easier to zip up the jacket. This theory is still unconfirmed so we reached out to YKK to see if they can add any information. YKK stated that 99% of jackets made in the U.S. have zippers that are right handed. The standard in the rest of the world including Canada is left handed. When they have to order zippers from overseas, they have to specify the right handed zipper. So if your jacket is an import, you may be seeing a left handed zipper on the jacket. Cleaner’s Supply and Wawak both carry just right handed zippers.

I’ve been getting a lot of complaints about the #5 sliders not fitting into zippers. Do you know what’s happening? Are the sliders defective?
Anonymous

A:
There may be some confusion about what slider to use for the zipper in question. The #5 new style plastic (ZS5N*) and the #5 old style plastic (ZS5V*) are not compatible and of course, the #5 Nylon Coil sliders (ZS5C) won’t work on a #5 Molded Plastic Zipper (old or new). Metal sliders also will not work with plastic and vice versa.

My plastic zippers are melting when I press the garment on our hot head press.
Anonymous

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
On a laundry hot head press the heads are locked down for several minutes and there is not always an easy way to avoid pressing the zippers on laundered items. When finishing a garment it is suggested the zippers be positioned off the edge of the press. This way, the hot head will not rest directly on the zipper. If this is not possible, place some type of cover over the zipper. A folded handkerchief or piece of flannel from a press pad will help minimize the chances of a melted zipper.

To replace the slider on an expensive winter NFL Jacket is there a way to remove the retaining box, put the new slider on and reattach the retaining box? Or what would you suggest short of replacing the whole zipper. One side of the slider is busted off.

If the retaining box is broken, the entire zipper would need to be replaced.

How are separating zippers measured? I have a jacket where the zipper is 24.5” from the top of the top stop to the bottom of the retainer box. Would a 24” zipper work as a replacement?

A:
The length of the zipper is the full length of the zipper chain, minus the extra fabric on the top. If you ordered a 24" molded plastic zipper, the full length would be about 25", so that zipper would work for you.

Excellent

Good quality cloth, and the coils are well made. Zips very smoothly.
