Zipper Parts & Accessories
Sometimes you need a new slider for your zipper. From time to time they break or just plain old wear out. If you own a boat that has an enclosure with zippers then you already know the parts go bad occasionally. The the question comes up “What size zipper do I have”? “Can I change it out myself? The answer is likely easier than you may think.
First, to simplify things, most boat canvas covers utilize either a #8 or a #10 Zipper. How can you tell the difference? The pull tab slider for #8 Zipper is rounded on the top. The pull tab slider on the #10 is square on the top. One is not necessarily better than the other although the #10 is a bit heavier.
