Dual Zipper Pulls on 05/15/2012 19:01:31 MDT Print View

Alright, my octamid is almost done, I just have to figure out this zipper conundrum. I have dual zipper pulls so I can vent the door if needed. My Gatewood Cape has two pulls and they face opposite directions (that is the bottom pull has the pointed end pointing towards the bottom and the top pull has the pointed end pointing towards the top). It works perfectly because you can unzip the door while being able to still vent the top of the zipper. However, I can not figure out how to do this without installing a pull backwards on the zipper (that is the square end going on first) and I fiddled with trying to put the zipper on this way for 1/2 and hour and couldn't get it on. All other configurations of the two pulls doesn't provide the desired results. Any ideas would be much appreciated, I'm fresh out...
