National Zipper Day

Local News

April 29th is National Zipper Day, because a patent for the modern zipper was issued to inventor Gideon Sundback on that date in 1913.

Similar inventions date back to the 18-50’s.

They went by such names as “automatic, continuous clothing closure,” “clasp locker,” “separable fastener,” and “hook-less fastener.”

The company B-F Goodrich popularized the name “zipper” in the 19-20’s.
