I’m regularly driven to distraction when trying to close up my coat in a sudden rainstorm.
The main difficulty is that the moving zip part (carriage?) and the retainer get misaligned and/or separated by even a small amount.
This makes it impossible to insert the other side of the zip properly, thus causing me to have to bend over and watch what I’m doing in some detail.
Today’s invention is a pair of small magnets to remedy this situation (shown in yellow).
Simply moving the zipper down as far as it will go will automatically attach and align the zip and retainer, allowing the wearer to avoid spending crucial seconds getting wet.
