If you have a project that needs to be done, chances are good that the zipper is going to be part of it. Zippers can be tough to work with and delicate pieces of clothing are often damaged by bad zippers. Luckily, there are several options available when it comes to zippers so you don’t have to worry about your projects getting ruined by a cheap or poor quality one.
There are two main types of zippers that are commonly used in clothing, household items and other products.
There are two main types of zippers that are commonly used in clothing, household items and other products. They’re both made from the same material but with different properties: plastic-coated nylon is a durable and flexible fabric; metal zippers can be more difficult to work with because they’re more rigid.

Plastic coated zippers have plastic coating on the teeth that prevents them from snagging when you’re pulling on it or picking up something heavy with it. This makes them easy to close without accidentally opening your bag of groceries or dropping your keys into something wet (like toilet water).
Metal zippers are stronger than plastic-coated nylon zippers, but they’re more difficult to work with and should only be used for heavier fabrics or outerwear jackets.
Metal zippers are a more expensive option than plastic-coated nylon, but they can be used for heavier fabrics or outerwear jackets. Metal zippers are also more difficult to work with than their nylon counterparts, as they don’t have teeth on the sides of the slot that help you get into position when using them. If you’re not going for fastening purposes and want a non-locking zipper in your project, metal zippers without teeth might be better suited for your needs.

You can find metal zipper types in many different lengths, widths and colors—from basic straight runs through specialty coils or sliders (which slide closer together).
