Jacket zippers come in all different shapes, sizes and colors. If you're looking for a replacement zipper for your jacket, you might be surprised by the variety of options!
How is a jacket zipper different from a skirt zipper or pants zipper? The jacket zipper detaches completely at the bottom so you can detach the zipper from itself and take off the jacket. One end has a pin and a box, insert the pin into the box to activate the zipper.
Things to Consider When Replacing Your Jacket Zipper
If the zipper on your jacket is broken and you still like the jacket, find a replacement zipper for it instead of replacing the entire garment.
If your jacket needs a replacement zipper, ZIPHOO offers zippers in a variety of lengths and colors. If you're replacing an existing zipper on a jacket, coat, or even a hoodie, be aware of the type of zipper you're replacing and how tight you need it to match. The gauge (or width) of the zipper is important, as is the type, color and length of the teeth.
If the existing zippers on your jacket are durable, you will need to replace them with durable jacket zippers, otherwise the garment may look out of place and the zipper may break more easily. Just as importantly, the replacement zippers are breakaway zippers rather than closed zippers. A breakaway zipper at the bottom makes it easy to put on and take off the jacket.
Another consideration is the material of the zipper teeth. Some popular types of zipper teeth for jacket zippers include antique brass and brass (commonly found in leather jackets) and metals such as nylon coils. Winter parkas usually have zippers with molded plastic teeth.
