Cord Zipper Pulls - Tom Bihn Packing Cubes

Many of our bags come with Cord Zipper Pulls (ID, Ego, Super Ego, Smart Alec, and others) on at least some of their zippers while other bags come exclusively with metal zipper pulls (Empire Builder, Aeronaut, and others). The main advantage a cord pull has over a metal pull is that the cord pull is significantly quieter than the metal pull: you won't get that "I'm being followed by a golden retriever" sound with cord pulls. This can be a significant difference with a bag like the Aeronaut, which has numerous zippers. The disadvantage of cord pulls is that if you want to lock two sliders together with a luggage lock, someone could easily cut the cords.

Now you have the option of buying extra Cord Zipper Pulls to use in addition to or instead of metal zipper pulls.

You'll receive parts for 8 Cord Zipper Pulls: 8 cords and 16 plastic zipper pull parts. (It takes two plastic zipper pull parts to make one complete zipper pull.)

Important: Make sure you've decided you never want metal zipper pulls again before you cut them off because, once you've cut the metal pulls off, you can't put them back on. And once you've cut off your metal zipper pulls, that part of your bag is no longer covered under our Lifetime Guarantee. For example: you can't cut off your metal zipper pulls, then send your bag back to us to have the zipper replaced because you want the metal zipper pulls back (the rest of the bag is still covered by our guarantee). Once the metal pulls have been removed from a bag, we cannot accept the bag back for exchange or refund. And while replacing the metal pulls with Cord Zipper Pulls isn't as dangerous as some of the things we do every day, please make sure to be careful and know that you are proceeding at your own risk.
