Our Story

The initial idea for ZipTip was formed in 2005 by our founder, Tom Medsker, when the zipper pull to his boat canvas broke.

At the hardware store, he could only find a nickel-coated steel split keyring, which was a functional but temporary replacement since they did not look very attractive and soon rusted.

Then Tom had his ZipTip epiphany: elongate a portion of the ring. This allowed for adding a plastic piece to the center ring to functionally attach to zippers. Thus the ZipTip products were born.

For many years, our ZipTip products were made with three pieces, but in 2022  the ZipTip was completely redesigned into a durable and easy-to-use two-piece product.  A missing zipper pull can be replaced in less than a minute as demonstrated in our product video.
