Tricks of the Trade

I saw this tip in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of the Marine Fabricator.  It’s a handy trick for storing your zipper chain rolls.  Most of us struggle with keeping a roll of zipper not only clean, but untangled.  This tip will help.

All you need is an 18-quart tote, with a 1″ hole drilled in the top from a hole saw.  Simply put the roll in the tote, remove the cardboard sleeve and feed the zipper (from inside the roll) thru the hole.  The tote’s are easily labeled with a magic marker for quick identification. 

Your zipper is now clean & untangled!
