Y-Zip Slider / Zip

Y-Zip Slider

When pulling up a zipper, the slider often catches inner layers of clothing or deforms the ends of longer hair. Long-term, forceful pulling can damage the zipper or displace the slider.
Y-Zip Slider is different from common zipper sliders. The front of the slider extends along the zipper teeth to form a Y shape. Firstly, the U-shape concave created by the left and right side can effectively block out hanging objects.
