YKK® Zipper #10 Coil Finished is a fine-toothed finished coil zipper with a smooth zip. Coil zippers are stronger and more flexible than VISLON® zippers, making them an excellent choice for projects with curves. Use a #10 Coil Zipper for boat enclosures, tents, packs and other marine and outdoor applications. When used in outdoor applications, we recommend keeping the zipper covered to protect it from the sun and increase the life of the zipper.
Finished zippers can be separated, like the zipper on a jacket, and include a zipper slider, starter box and top stops. A finished zipper can easily be shortened by cutting the end that is closed last. Install new top stops or sew fabric pieces over the ends of the teeth to keep the slider from coming off the end.

Vislon & Coil Zippers - Part 1
Most zippers come in two distinct styles called vislon or coil. This video will discuss the differences of a vislon and coil zipper. Vislon zippers are the most common marine zippers. They are strong and designed to resist UV and corrosive damage. Coil zipper chain is strong and flexible due to a fine toothed design. Great for bags, tents, packs and rounding corner applications, but not as good for UV resistance.
