Common uses: Parkas, everyday jackets, coats, sportswear, fleece, ski jackets
Description: #5 molded plastic two-way separating zippers feature teeth that measure approximately 5mm (1/4 inch) wide when zipped. Often called sport zippers or parka zippers, #5 molded plastic two-way separating zippers separate at the bottom, jacket-style. These are 2-way zippers (they have two sliders) and are sometimes referred to as dual zippers, double zippers, or two-head zippers. When the zipper is installed in a jacket, the bottom slider can move up the track, unzipping the lower portion of the zipper and allowing one’s legs room to move around more freely. Great for long coats!
Note: The 144 inch zippers are offered in black only and can be used on many long-arm quilting machines.
