1. Zip (Zipper in American English and Zip Fastener in long form), look for the initials YKK on your zip pull. By the way, you may be interested to know that the zip was invented in the USA yet almost all zips are manufactured in Japan. An early device superficially similar to the zip, "an Automatic, Continuous Clothing Closure", was patented in the United States by Elias Howe in 1851. Unlike the zip, Howe's invention had no slider; instead a series of clasps slid freely along both edges to be joined, with each clasp holding the two sides together at whichever pair of points along them it was located. The clasps were joined together by a string, which, when pulled taut, caused the clasps to be evenly spaced along the closure, thus holding the two edges together. Pulling in the other direction caused the clasps to become bunched up at one end, by which means the device was opened. The true zip was the product of a series of incremental improvements over more than twenty years, by inventors and engineers associated with a sequence of companies that were the progenitors of Talon, Inc. This process began with a version called the "clasp locker", invented by Whitcomb L. Judson of Chicago, and for which a patent was first applied for in 1891. It culminated in 1914 with the invention, by Gideon Sundback, of the "Hookless Fastener No. 2", which was the first version of the zip without any major design flaws, and which was essentially indistinguishable from modern zips.
