An inventor from Humble, Texas, has developed the ZIPPER HELPER, a device that aids individuals when trying to pull up zippers found upon various garments, especially the rear of dresses or other articles of clothing.

"I invented this item as a means to help women zip their own dress. It is especially beneficial while traveling or when an extra set of hands is not available to help," said the inventor.

The ZIPPER HELPER provides an aid to fasten a zipper by allowing greater ease when dressing. It provides independence and a sense of empowerment as assistance is not required. It also eliminates broken fingernails that often occur when trying to fasten a zipper. This device will reduce the stress placed upon an individual’s arms. Individuals with limited manual dexterity or limited range of motion for find it most beneficial.

The original design was submitted to the Houston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
