Is Your Zipper Metaluxe?

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.
