Universal Adapter

  • The Universal Adapter allows you to attach the BellyFit Jacket Extender* to most zippered jackets. The patented design slides over and secures onto any brand or size of zip. For different length jackets, you simply need to reposition it in order to get your ideal coverage.
  • Fits MOST zips (See Compatibility in Specs for restrictions) and can be easily and quickly swapped between jackets. Watch a DETAILED DEMO here.
  • Use the Universal Adapter on its own during early pregnancy and post-partum for a few extra inches.
  • Combine the Universal with our award-winning BellyFit Jacket Extender to use up to full-term and after for baby-wearing.
*BellyFit sold separately

  • Warning: Not suitable for Metaluxe Zips. See photo here.
  • Designed to work with MOST zips. Watch demo here.
  • Wind, rain and snow resistant, ready for fall, winter and spring.
  • 27" (70cm) long, one-size fits most, adjustable down to 24" for shorter jackets and can be repositioned higher up on longer jackets.
  • Adds approximately 2" to the front of jackets.
  • Designed and lovingly made in Canada.
  • Made from buttery-soft Softshell for comfortable protection against the elements.
  • Long pull-tabs on all zips to make zipping easier.

The jacket extender is awesome as it lets my husband carry our son as well and they are both warm!

Game changer

Love it! It is so nice while pregnant not to need to buy new winter jackets and can’t wait to use this with our baby carrier when she turns up.



Works alright but not perfect

I am grateful that this product even exists. However, I found it was not really a "universal" adapter because the *top* of some of my jacket zippers is folded over or hidden, such that, you simply cannot string on the clips that fasten the adapter. It has nothing to do with the type of zipper itself, but rather how the jacket's own zipper is stitched into the jacket itself. Check out the photo of the purple jacket (works with Universal adapter) versus the blue jacket (does not work, even when I folded back that little piece of cloth that covers the top of the zipper (see photo showing how one blue jacket can attach to the Universal adapter, while the other blue jacket cannot, even when I really fold back that little piece of cloth)). I also found, that when paired with the BellyFit (see photo of purple jacket with both Universal adapter & BellyFit) the two items together really adds several inches to my jacket circumference (see photo showing how much the jacket can be pulled out from body). It might work ok if you have a drawstring to cinch the hem of your jacket together, but alas mine does not and I think in winter it will be a little drafty. I am going to keep both the universal adapter and the BellyFit, however, because they work ok with three of my jackets, which should work for fall & deep winter (see photo of purple jacket with just the Universal adapter, without the bellyfit). And I haven't seen any other better options. A big thank you to MakeMyBellyFit for even *having* these types of products for us outdoorsy pregnant and postpartum ladies!

Thank you for the feedback Susan :). We're always looking for ways to improve and make our extenders more comfortable/usable. Viva the outdoors!


I totally recommend their products.
And their customer service is amazing.
