SR10 spiral zip fastener top stops

We offer special top stops with 3 spikes for spiral zip fasteners. These top stops are also used on ready-made spiral zip fasteners. These top stops are pressed directly onto the spiral (in fact, coil or helix). The spikes penetrate through the zip fastener tape and are pushed into the plastic spiral interstices. As a result, these top stops are fixed very firmly and hold well.

We will show you step by step below how to mount these top stops on a spiral zip fastener. Needle-nose pliers and a small flat pliers will be helpful. Two videos at the bottom of this page will demonstrate the process.

It also looks nicer when the flat-pressed top stops hide in the slider when it is slid up to the very top to close the zip fastener completely.
