invisible separating zipper?

Josefly | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Does anybody know if an invisible separating zipper is made? My son wants me to replace the invisible zipper in the front of a pullover athletic jersey with a full-length separating zipper, but it’s important that the zipper not show. I’ve checked generally on Google, but came up only with regular separating zippers or regular invisible zippers.

    I've never seen a separating invisible zipper. Could you use a really long one and not have it separate at the very bottom?

      Thanks so much for your suggestion. In this case I don't think it would work. The jersey is for a tri-athlete, who comes out of the swim part of the race and needs to be able to quickly (milliseconds matter!) get into this jersey. The jersey is a close-fitting pullover, which gets stuck to his wet skin, so he wants something that opens fully in the front. I could just use a separating zipper, but the jersey is printed with the logo of his sponsor, and the invisible zipper would not interfere with a continuous image. I'm afraid there is no such thing, though, as an invisible separating zipper, so we may just be out of luck.

        Try http://www.zipperstop.com

        You might have to contact them directly to see if they have or can create just what you need, I know people have had them do some custom work and their service has always received positive comments.  There are a couple other zipper sources I had marked but have switched computers and lost those bookmarks... if I remember them I'll post!  You might also try some sources like The Rain Shed in Oregon or Seattle Fabrics in Seattle which deal with specialty outdoor and sometimes athletic fabrics, perhaps they've the right notions/zippers to go with.

          I'll get in touch with zipperstop, and check out the other places you suggested. Thanks, Karen. It didn't occur to me that someone might be able to make such a zipper, but that would be great. - Joan
