#5 YKK® Coil Zipper Chain is a fine toothed coil continuous zipper that is quite flexible for rounding corners or following difficult angles. This very strong and flexible zipper chain can be cut to any length. the zipper is commonly used for smaller bags, tent screens, throw cushions jacket pockets or anywhere a zipper must follow a curve. It cannot be made into a separating zipper. At least one end has to be sewn, both ends is preferable.
Continuous zippers require at least one end to be sewn shut and do not include a starter box or pin, top stops, or zipper sliders. Top & bottom stops and sliders are sold separately. On a smaller zipper like this one, the easiest way to close the ends of the coil zipper is find or cut a 1" wide piece of cloth folded in half, then insert the end of the zipper inside the fold of fabric, then sew across the fabric locking the zipper end preventing the zipper slider from falling out. Do this on both ends. This method is way easier than trying to squeeze a bottom or top stop onto the zipper.
