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.

  • 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.
  • Black, 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, 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 PFAS-free 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.

Perfect solution for getting through winter while pregnant

I’m so pleased I found this product. Many years ago I made myself a wool coat extender that attached to my button coat while I was pregnant, but this is just next level.

It was fairly easy to attach to my zip although one side was a bit stiff to get on. The zip adapters stay in place nicely with the little locks and it’s easy to fasten.

My coat now fits nicely around me and with the elastic adjusters and snaps and there’s plenty of room to grow in the rest of my pregnancy.

I love that I can move it easily between coats as it gets colder here, and that it has a nice warm layer on the inside.

I did also get the extra sherpa layer for when it’s really cold here (I live in Scotland) and I can’t wait to use it. It does fit nicely on the snaps on the inside though.

Given how the zip adapters can be moved up and down on the coat, this will also be fantastic when I’m carrying my baby in a sling after birth.

Great product

The product is perfect for all the stages of the pregnancy+after birth, it fits the jacket and it is easy to apply and use, it keeps you warm. I also got a sherpa layer as a gift. Very satisfied. Delivery was also very fast to Norway.

Perfect

It’s exactly what I needed. I used the universal adapter on my Herno Laminar coat - and now it’ll fit me for the rest of the season and my pregnancy. Great buy - and fast shipping!
