Introduction: A New Safety Feature...The Zipper!!

That's right! Due to the vulnerability of modern security I have decide to go back to the classics and nothing beats a zipper. By the end of this instructable you'll have a zipped up door that is able to hold my strength against it.

Step 1: Materials

For this instructable you'll need one long zipper and double sided tape and make sure your zipper can completely unzip and split into two.

Step 2: Sticking the Tape

First, cut two strips of the double sided tape a bit shorter than the length of the zipper. Then stick them to both sides of the zipper (I used a stapler to hold the tape tight on the zipper).
Note that if you're doing this on a wooden door you can simply staple the zipper into the wooden door.

Step 3: Placing the Zipper

In this step you have to place the zipper on the door,so carefully place the zipper (taped face facing the door - of course) on the edge of the door and the other side of the zipper on the door frame(or where ever the door closes onto).

Step 4: Zip It Good!

Now zip up that zipper and enjoy your classical high quality security feature for your door.

I'm a little skeptical about this.. Does this really work? O: 'cause if it does, it's super cheap and simple to do!

That's probably the most unconventional combination of 2 things I've ever seen. Good work! lol

An awesome upgrade if you could somehow incorporate a couple of hook and eye fasteners from a bra, cos most guys seem to have problems trying to undo them. :)

Nice idea, but i find it more practical for small things to open for kids, like toy boxes or something. Start playing before playing :D

Not very practical. I can't imagine trying to zip it from the bottom!..Mary
