I have bought everything from Sailrite, from the excellent sewing machine to thread. Latest purchase were zippers. The service is excellent. The products are top of the line. My favorite part is the help for someone like me who's first major project is reupholstering my rv with no experience what=so-ever. I told them I was really struggling with sewing a zipper. Instantly sent a link for a video and had close to perfect success of my zipper into a huge cushion with naugahyde material no less! Wanted to post a picture of the beautiful way it came out. They are so helpful and I couldn't do this project without them!

I used this zipper in four salon cushions for my sailing catamaran. While they don't get much use, remaining closed except to clean them once, they worked find for that application - remaining closed except when I chose to open them, and I just bought more zipper to use for the berth cushions on my boat.
For cushions, the #5 size is better, as they are big enough to handle easily -for those times you do open and close them, but take up less room.
Note: see the "Sewing cockpit cushions" instructional video for guidance on how to install, it is very useful for installing this product.
