Zippydodah - zip pull replacement

Fed up with zip pulls breaking on my gear and, at the time, not finding anything on the web I decided to create my own replacement zip pull. I spent a couple of years over this perfecting the design and material. I now have something that is easy to use, cheap and looks good on all clothing. I've called it Zippydodah. It's...

Afraid to say, that there has been something like this on the market for a few years now.

Zippydodah - Zip pull replacement

Hi


Thanks for your comments.
Yes there are other replacements on the market but I wanted something that was strong and cheap to make and which would look good on any item (Also I started this before there were others on the market - just took me time to perfect the ideal design). I hope we have achieved that. Yes you can use cable ties or paper clips but they done't look and in the case of paper clips they break.

Are you saying that Zippydodah will not break?

Err no ta

In the past I have made do with paperclips or heavy fishing line.

I probably wouldn't buy a replacement zip pull even if it cost less than 50p

I'm currently using two paperclips - one on my overtrousers and one on my Dainese jacket.

Hate using them as paperclips do break/deform fairly swftly and look cheap.

I'm interested as to how zippydodah would attach to the zip itself - if its complicated or require some alterations to the garment itself, this would put me off. If you can demonstrate how its simple/straight forward and that its less than say.. £2 then I'd be very interested.

Hope this helps!

Cheap enough but !!!!

£4.02 delivery from Amazon?
WTF !!!
How much do these weigh ?
If I put one on my right boot will I still be able to turn left ?
Good idea but won't sell much with that delivery cost.

If it were me I jump the sinking ship, it could be the strongest and most durable zip produced but with over 4 pound postage and nothing to differentiate your product from any other I can't see it selling well, good effort but the gap in the market has zipped up! Did you like that :)

Keyrings, obviously without a tag on. Easy to get on and off and you can stick your finger through them for extra purchase.
