20090126164Zipper secure - The present invention is a device that secures an individual's zipper in the closed position under all conditions. The device consists of a flexible band connected to a U-shaped clip with a closed loop at one end. One end of the flexible bad is fed through the zipper aperture then fed back through the opened loop of the flexible band. When pulled tight, the flexible band is secured to the zipper aperture. The open section of the U-shaped clip is then slid over the top of the waist or waistband of the garment. This device can also be used in reverse. To do so, use the open end of the U-shaped clip and insert it though the zipper aperture and pull it up. Then slip the flexible band over a button or snap at the top of the garment. The zipper is now secured in the full closed position. When secured, the flexible band provides proper tension and flexibility to the zipper, keeping it secure in all ranges of motion.05-21-2009
