Metaluxe is the only zip style that does not work directly with the Universal Adapter. See further down on how to identify a Metaluxe zip.

ATTACHING THE UNIVERSAL ADAPTER WILL DAMAGE A METALUXE ZIP.

Exceptionally, for Metaluxe zips made by the brand "YKK", we are able to provide additional adapters that would work with our universal extender.

If you think your zip is Metaluxe or are unsure, please email us with the following information: 

  • A clear photo of your zip, including the slider or sliders (if there are more than one).
  • Length of zip
  • Letters / numbers on the back of the slider(s)

With the above information, we will be able to advise you if an adapter is available and how to include it with your order for a Universal Jacket Extender. 

Identifying Metaluxe Zippers - It's the SHAPE

Zip up your jacket. Look at the shape on the outside of your jacket. Compare it to the unique tooth shape in the photos below. This shape is what Metaluxe looks like and how we identify it. Contact us if you're not sure.

Examples of metaluxe zips and rudsak zip

The color can be silvergold or another darker color. The material is plastic however is designed to look like metal. 

Some brands that may use Metaluxe zippers include:

  • Rudsak
  • Mackage
  • O’Neil (certain models only)
  • Columbia (certain models only)
  • Free Shipping - CAN/US

Guaranteed to fit your belly and baby.

The Universal Jacket Extender is a softshell extender that expands the front of your own jacket during pregnancy. While baby-carrying with a soft-structured front-carrier, wrap or sling, the extender expands your jacket around you and your baby, for close comfort and warmth while outdoors.

The unique design slides over and secures onto most brands and sizes of zippers allowing you to switch between jackets with ease. For different-length jackets, simply reposition the extender for ideal coverage or fold the top down on shorter jackets. The Universal Adapter can also be used without the extender during early pregnancy and post-partum where just a few extra inches are needed.

  • Warning: Not suitable for Metaluxe zips. See tab above to verify if your zip is Metaluxe.
  • Note: The extender is different from the classic BellyFit Jacket Extender. The results of the Zipper Check do not apply to the Universal.
  • Designed to slide onto most zips, brands and types of jackets (rain, down, parka, long and short jackets). 
  • VIDEOS:
  • Long pull-tabs and high quality zips make zipping easier.
  • Plastic snaps and elastic strip to control the width for a better fit. Snaps also help with shortening the top on short jackets and while baby-carrying.
  • Snap-on fleece panel for an extra layer of warmth (included). Simply remove for milder days.
  • Universal Adapter includes stop-system to make sure it stays in place on your zip and prevent any sliding.
  • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most. 12" (30cm) wide at it's widest and tapering down to 7" (17cm) at the base.
  • Adjustable down to 24" (60cm) for shorter jackets and can be repositioned higher up on longer jackets.
  • Made from high quality softshell, polar fleece, YKK zips and proprietary clips.
  • Softshell is 3-layer with a micro-fleece lining (98% polyester, 2% Spandex), waterproof and breathable membrane and outer shell with a durable water-repellency coating (DWR).
  • Wash Instructions: Machine wash cold with mild detergent. Hang to dry. Do not dry clean.
  • Lovingly made in Montreal, Canada. Made in Canada

Your baby’s safety is your responsibility. Always monitor your baby or child to ensure adequate ventilation and warmth. The Universal Jacket Extender is NOT a baby-carrier. Always follow the safety instructions of your baby-carrier.

Great purchase!

The universal extender is a game changer. Having a baby with colic, I struggled to keep him lying down in the pram for long spells of time, so using the carrier was the best option for me. The jacket extender means I can take out my baby in any weather and I know he’s comfortable and safe. It also means I’m warm too! Such a great product and really easy to use.

Versatile and high quality

This is a phenomenal product. It is just as advertised. Easy to use, versatile for all stages of pregnancy and postpartum, warm for a baby (even a newborn in Wisconsin), and overall high quality. I accidentally ordered two and almost returned one, but after using mine realized what an asset it was, so gave the second one to a pregnant friend. Couldn’t recommend more highly!

Love the extender

I finally caved and ordered the jacket extender with my second pregnancy being 5 months pregnant in the middle of a very cold Toronto winter. It was worth it as I'm a teacher and have to be outside everyday with the kids. No more struggling to fit into my jacket everyday. The extender is easy to use and works well. I can't wait to use it next winter when I wear baby around.
