The Right Hardware for the Right Hold
Built to stay put and release when you need them to, YKK’s hardware items are made from durable materials. These items include zippers and replacement zipper parts, buckles, D-rings, and snap fasteners. While excellent marine zippers, YKK zippers are used in a range of industries. Uses consist of boat covers and other marine functions, upholstery and cushions, awning enclosures, tents, bags, industrial curtains, pillows, and more.
Marked by a distinct “YKK” stamp, zippers and sliders are the company's mainstay products. YKK zippers are lightweight and built to perform smoothly under any conditions. With an integrated coloring process, the paint won’t chip off or fade. Find marine-grade plastic zippers with polyester zipper tape, metal zipper sliders (or pulls), VISLON® zippers, ZIPLON® (coil zippers), finished separating zippers, zipper chains (or “continuous” zippers), top stops, and more.
Beyond zippers, YKK also produces a variety of industrial fasteners. Choose from easy-use D-rings, cord locks, and buckles. The fastening products are great for backpacks and marine applications. They deliver small, simple designs with reliable, effective results. Explore different styles, depending on the type of fastener you need.
In our marine hardware section, you’ll find YKK’s SNAD® domed snap fasteners. These unique pieces of hardware eliminate the need to drill holes into boat surfaces. The rounded shape means they’re safe to walk on and won’t snag on surrounding elements. SNAD marine fasteners are compatible with a variety of fasteners to snap firmly in place.
