YKK® Zipper #10 White Top Stop (Vislon)
YKK® Zipper Top Stop is a new slider stop for shortened #10 Vislon Continuous or Finished Zippers. A top stop is the component found at the top of a zipper that keeps the slider from running off the zipper track.
Please Note: Two top stops are required, one for each side of the zipper.
- Separate the zipper sides to work with each half.
- Using a pair of wire cutters, remove the a plastic zipper tooth where the Top Stop is to be positioned at the top of each side of the zipper. To easily do this, snip the tooth in half, width-wise, then slide the remaining half out of the zipper with a pair of needle-nose pliers.
- Place the Top Stop over the area you just removed the tooth at the top of the zipper and squeeze into place with pliers.
Pro Tip: When removing a tooth or teeth for the Top Stop, we recommend leaving the top tooth in place and removing the second tooth in the zipper. This gives additional leverage for the Top Stop to secure.
