This zipper and tab bundle consists of 2 complete zippers and a Tab Only Zipper, Side Grips, and 10 Foot Red Snapper Quilt Loading system.
Half of the zippers have had the fabric tabs attached to them by MK. The remaining halves (the pull side of the zippers) are intended to be attached to your front and back leaders (the leaders that you attach your backing fabric to). The Tab Only Zipper is a ½ zipper, teeth portion only, with fabric attached. This ½ tab is intended to be used to prepare the next backing you’ve got coming up in your queue making your loading process go just that one step faster. Remember to watch MK’s “Load Quilts The MK Way (Updated 02/2023)” on YouTube.
