Whoever said they don’t make ‘em like they used to has never seen Talon Zips made.  One could say these zippers are a faithful reproduction of the zippers that helped build America and win the war.  Then again, the word “reproduction” doesn’t cover their authenticity.  Durable, soft polyester tapes have the look and feel of the original cotton tapes, but none of their problems.  Perfect for vintage looks, modern retro or zipper-centric designs, Vintage Zips are the greatest zippers from the greatest generation. 

Bottom Jean Zippers


Most zippers are just made to work.  But WorkZip is made for work.  Real work.  The kind where kuckles bleed, knees burn and incredible things get built.  WorkZips are designed to reduce the “hinging” or “knuckling” that occurs when traditional zippers get twisted or compressed during labor intensive jobs.  Heavy-duty brass teeth, increased crosswise strength and 120 years of experience combine to make Talon’s WorkZip the one zipper that can stand up to any job.  Because you have bigger things to worry about.  


Talon FR zippers are specially designed, tested and guaranteed to withstand high temperatures and demanding environments.  Talon FR zippers are created to survive the entire lifetime of heavy workwear garments.  These zippers perform at higher levels of safety for increased durability in high-risk workwear applications.  NFPA 2122 compliant, Talon FR means protection you can count on.  

Plastic Molded


Electroplated Coil

Talon’s electroplated coil zippers are a coil alternative to metal zippers.  Their shiny appearance gives a metallic appearance on lightweight and flexible coil zippers.   

Water Resistant

Talon’s AquaTight Water Resistant coil zippers are great for outerwear, activewear, jackets, coats, parkas…any garment where exposure to the elements is a concern.  Special tapes with water resistant coatings keep the moisture on the outside and the garment wearer warm and dry on the inside. 


When it comes to your children’s clothing, safety is obviously first.  That’s why Talon’s KidZip products are designed to exceed global safety requirements by a large margin.  This includes strength requirements aimed at stopping small parts from breaking off and becoming choking hazards.  KidZip products are manufactured to meet all substance standards, including being both lead and nickel-free.  And all raw materials used, including paints, are AZO-free.  To put it another way, we’ve taken care of all the worrying about the safety of these zippers so you can worry about creating the next great piece of children’s clothing.


Being in a shoe is rough life for a zipper. That’s why Talon’s FootZip is designed to work for the entire life of your shoe designs. Special sliders with strengthened bodies prevent distortion failure and mismeshing. High-shrinkage sewing thread creates a tighter, more rigid attachment of coil teeth and zipper tape. And wider width tapes help you add strength to your design.
