This is a #10 separating zipper by YKK® with a double pull, locking zipper slider. Featuring white teeth and tape with a Delrin® double pull slider, this zipper will blend into your canvas projects. The locking, double pull slider can be pulled from either side of the zipper chain and stays locked in place until pulled.
Molded tooth zippers are made with Delrin plastic teeth molded to the fabric tape edges. (VISLON® is the YKK branded term for a molded tooth zipper style.) This construction makes them strong and practically weatherproof. Designed to resist damage from UV rays and corrosion, YKK VISLON zippers are a great choice for marine environments. Use a #10 molded tooth zipper on sail covers, canvas enclosures, jib luff sleeves, jackets and much more.
Separating zippers can be fully separated like the zipper on a jacket. They include a zipper slider, starter box and top stops. A separating zipper can easily be shortened by cutting the end that is closed last. Install new top stops or sew fabric pieces over the ends of the teeth to keep the slider from coming off the end.

Vislon & Coil Zippers - Part 1
Most zippers come in two distinct styles called vislon or coil. This video will discuss the differences of a vislon and coil zipper. Vislon zippers are the most common marine zippers. They are strong and designed to resist UV and corrosive damage. Coil zipper chain is strong and flexible due to a fine toothed design. Great for bags, tents, packs and rounding corner applications, but not as good for UV resistance.

I have yet to install this zipper, it's intended to replace an existing one that has a section of fabric tearing due to stress. Lots of wear and tear plus UV damage potential in the tropics. I am pleased with price, availability and quick delivery. Next March I expect to install it.
I just assumed the fabric attached to the zipper would be double sided. Completely my mistake.
