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.
This instructable is in the zip it good!contest and the hand tools only contest so if you liked it please take a second to vote I deeply appreciate it.

    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
