Frequently Asked Questions.
~ Marleen D.
Do brands other than ANKHGEAR use MagZip zippers?
Yes! You’ll find top name manufacturers and brands like Under Armour use MagZip zippers. Plus, you can order them and add them to favorite clothing items you already have.
I love my ANKHGEAR hoodie. Are more products coming?
Absolutely. We’re working to design and manufacture more apparel featuring the MagZip zipper. Sign up on our email list and you’ll always know what’s new from ANKHGEAR.
I have or have seen a jacket that appears to have a MagZip. How do I know?
MagZip zippers are patented technology and the MagZip is a registered trademark. Other brands are incorporating MagZip technology, including ANKHGEAR.
The slider on my MagZip is broken. Do I need to get a slider from you?
MagZip zippers have specially designed sliders. While other sliders may look similar, they will not work properly. MagZip Sliders are available only through our store.
I have a jacket I purchased from a retailer that now has a broken MagZip. Who do I contact?
Please contact the retailer or manufacturer of the jacket you purchased. They may be able to provide a replacement garment under the original warranty. If they are unable to help you replace or repair a jacket, you may purchase a replacement MagZip from our store.
I can’t find the MagZip zipper color/length combination that I need.
Due to growing popularity, our MagZip zipper inventory is sometimes limited. For most colors, we offer only a single length. As long as the MagZip zipper you have selected is as long as or longer than the zipper it is replacing, it can be cut to size.
I found a color I need, but the length is unavailable or too short. Will you be getting more?
We do restock individual colors, but the length may vary. We do not have restocking schedules, but if you email us directly, we will inform you when new inventory arrives.
I'm confused about which MagZip zipper to purchase. What are the options?
Select a length:
- All lengths are in inches
- MagZip zippers are available in a variety of lengths. If the exact length you require is not available, we recommend ordering a slightly longer length. MagZip, as with most standard zippers, can be cut to length and a new Top Stop installed
- Zipper length is typically measured from the very bottom of the zipper tape (the fabric holding the zipper) to the very top tooth, usually known as a Top Stop.
- Many MagZip styles may only be available in a single length.
MagZip replacement zippers are a complete replacement separating zipper, including slider, and can be installed similar to any standard zipper.
We recommend a professional Tailor or Seamstress perform the installation. However, it is possible for a skilled sewer to perform the installation at home. There are many online tutorials including here, here, and here.
If needed, replacement Sliders are available separately.
At this time MagZip is available with #5 molded Delrin teeth.
How accurate are the colors?
We know that matching your existing garment is important to you. We try to ensure that images on our store accurately represent the actual product. However, due to image resizing and variations in displays, true product colors may vary slightly from the images.
