Excellent zipper, my 53ft order arrived in a continuous length!

by -

I ordered a whopping 53 feet of this zipper. I'm using it to redo the cushions on my 1990 Catalina 30. I chose black both as a better match for the blue fabric I'm using and also because I imagine it will show less dirt and grime through the years. All 53 feet arrived in a single stretch which was impressive. Cutting through the plastic zipper portion is a bit difficult. Don't expect your average scissor to slice directly through the plastic the teeth of the zipper but rather to navigate around the zipper teeth. While it's true that your zipper could be of any length it will make it much easier to stuff the cushions if the zipper is longer. I've been using about a 2inch gap on either side- and it still presents some difficulty getting the cushion foam into the cover!

Love custom sized zippers

Nice quality zipper which I expect will outlast the cushions by many years. I must admit, I'm still a little "challenged" when adding the pull, but I have only done a few of these, so I have to assume at some point it will be as easy as it appears in the videos. Totally worth it to be able to make custom sizes.

Excellent product.

I was a little apprehensive about ordering the zippers as I had a nightmare with the #10 zippers I had ordered previously. Went to YouTube and found the Sailrite zipper video and IT WORKED. Like anything, once you know what you're doing its easy. Thank you Sailrite!!

Wonderfully easy!

This was the first time I'd used a continuous zipper and was a little intimidated to try it, but I had to install an 84 inch zipper in this box cushion. I must say your informative tutorials helped tremendously! To my surprise, it was easier than putting in a closed zipper! Thank you so much.
