Tonneau cover zipper


(paultg) #1

I have the original zipper to the original tonneau cover but it is missing the pull tab. Does anyone have a picture of an original so I can fabricate a new one? Your help is greatly appreciated. Paul

Thank you Pat! That is very helpful.

After some more digging in the Forum I found some pictures of some additional zippers which were very useful also. Interestingly there wasn’t a consistency. Hard to say what was original and not that it really matters that much. I was just trying to match a pull tab to the zipper. I did make one out of brass stock and it is adequate but clearly not original but sufficient.

Thanks so much for your assistance and time.

Thanks Rob. My zipper is different but is helpful to understand the differences.
Thanks for taking the time!
