#5 COIL HANDBAG & UPHOLSTERY
Yardage is the best option when you are making purses & bags. Cut off what you need & save the remainder for your next purse or duffle project! The pulls are easily put on either end to meet in the middle. Some manufacturers call this "head to head". I have videos above on how I sew these zippers into bags.
If you are replacing cushions on a sofa, making outdoor cushions or a window seat cushion, #5 coil is the best! I have been using these #5 coil zippers in my slipcovers, cushions, upholstery for over 15 years. NEVER had the zipper break unless it was operator error.
Why #5 Coil? Much stronger than #4.5 which is what most bag patterns call for & upholsterers use.
Price is NOT how you purchase a zipper! The real cost of a zipper is the labor to install it in your project. So if you buy a cheap zipper, you really don't save money if you need to replace it because it breaks or pops.
The price is right on 200 yard spools because I purchase so many of them.
Of course, if you have problems I ALWAYS want to hear from you.
