This instuctable is a Daily living aid for a quadriplegic, a person with arthritics, carpal tunnel, finger amputee or anyone with a hand disability. The zipper loop makes it easier to zip zippers. This adaptation can be used on any zipper with a hole. I'm a quadriplegic and have these on everything from my pants, sweatshirts, jackets and my backpack.

I'm hemiplegic. The biggest problem I have with zippers is getting them started on my jackets. Otherwise I us split key rings to make them easier to pull with my effected hand. Congratulations on the runner up in the contest.
