YKK brand zippers are known for outlasting the competition. #8 VISLON zippers are durable, lightweight, and easy to handle. The teeth are made from heavy-duty acetal plastic, the sliders are metal and enamel, and the tape is polyester. Each part is lubricated, corrosion resistant, and uniquely equipped to work outdoors. YKK zippers can be used in a wide range of uses (although not recommended for curved applications).
The #8 VISLON zippers offered below are separating, auto-locking, and feature a short single-pull metal slider.
