    zipper pull silencer?

    I know I can replace metal zipper pulls with the cords...but I'd rather keep the metal pulls.

    There is a product made for silencing dog tags...is there something analogous for silencing zipper pulls?

    My problem is just that cutting off metal pulls is so...final.

    This issue came up before in the forums. You might want to read the two threads:
    for suggestions on how to thread the cord zipper pulls through the metal to silence the zipper pulls (see, especially, photos in the second thread)

    Well, silly me for not searching. I've gone through the forums from one end to the other, but I didn't have this purpose in mind when I did it.

    I will consider adding some cord. I'm also thinking of trying painting on that stuff that's used as a rubbery grip on tool tips.

    Thanks for the links.
