What Are Zipper Pulls And Sliders?

Zipper pulls and sliders: who knew these little zipper parts could be so important? The zipper slider is the piece that runs up and down the tracks, zipping and unzipping the zipper. We offer replacement zipper pulls for almost every type of zipper.

Zipper sliders go by many names and are also known as: zipper pulls, zipper pull tabs, zipper heads, zip pulls, and zip pullers. We use these names interchangeably. Whatever you call them, they are incredibly useful, and we often don’t realize their importance until they break!

When To Use Replacement Zipper Sliders

When your zipper parts break, it can be a real drag. Unfortunately, this kind of problem happens a lot. However, replacement zipper sliders and zipper pulls can save a coat or jacket zipper, upholstery zipper, or a favorite bag or backpack that is otherwise perfectly good. These zipper pulls and sliders are great items for sewing professionals to keep on hand for when zipper repair jobs are needed.

Individual zipper pulls can also be used with new, compatible zipper chain to create your own custom length closed-ended zippers. Once you learn how to attach the slider, you will have the ability to make zippers of any length you’d like.

Note: Zipper pulls and zipper sliders are designed to work with specific types of zippers. There are many types of zipper sliders out there, and it is important to identify the gauge and type of zipper you will be working with. For example, if you have a #5 brass zipper, you will need a zipper slider that is described as a #5 gauge and designed for metal zippers. If you have a #10 molded plastic zipper, the replacement zipper slider will need to be gauge #10 and designed for molded plastic teeth. Unsure which zipper pull is right for your zipper pull replacement project? Find the perfect slider by using the Zipper Slider Replacement Guide.

How To Replace a Zipper Slider

For the zipper pull replacement, you will need a set of pliers and you will also likely need a new set of top stops to do the zipper repair. First, remove the original top stops, and the old slider. Next, attach the new zipper head, unzip at least a few inches, and clamp new top stops back on. Zipper pull replacement is part art and part science, but once you have some experience under your belt, it becomes much easier.

Reading a little about zip pulls and zip pullers in the Zipper Slider Replacement Guide is a great investment of time if you anticipate making a lot of zipper part replacements. Once you understand the basic features that need to be identified when replacing zip pulls, you will be armed with useful knowledge for any other repairs that might be needed now or in the future.

When your zipper pull has broken or malfunctioned, a replacement zipper pull will make a huge difference!
