The gorgeous YKK size 5 LONG PULL non-lock RC (Racquet Coil) chain zippers are here in 48 beautiful colours! This listing is for SIZE 5 with nylon coil teeth and polyester tape. Each meter comes with 4 metal zipper sliders/pulls but you can purchase extras from the shop. Top quality stuff and amazing for use in bags. This Size 5 measure 3.2cm wide (and Size 3 tape and teeth measure about 2.5cm wide).
14 NEW COLOURS ARE NOW IN STORE! They are: 850 Paprika, 133 Chrome Grey, 371 Biscuit, 301 Dark Grey, 506 Buttercup, 030 Off White (fairly white but not stark like 501 White), 121 Vanilla (a touch denser than 502 Ivory), 343 Light Grey 2 (a touch more relaxed than 119 Light Grey 1), 535 Neon Green, 536 Spring Green, 537 Avocado Green, 151 Dublin Green, 907 Peacock Blue, 299 Wild Plum, 520 Cranberry.
In addition to pulls in the same colour as the zipper tape, you can also choose from the 4 metallic coloured RC pulls- silver, gold, antique brass and gunmetal (light colour)!
Price is per metre, with 4 sliders/pulls included each metre(unless chosen otherwise). Please note RC zipper pulls will not work on regular zippers, only YKK RC zippers.
Question: How do you tell whether a zipper pull/slider is for YKK RC (all referring to Size 5 zippers)?
Answer: For RC sliders, you can see it says "YKK 5RC" on the underside of the slider. Pull-wise, the cutout on the long handbag zipper pull is not a complete circle- more like a 3/4 circle- whereas the cutout on a regular non-RC pull is a complete circle.

My long-awaited YKK #5RC zipper arrived Jan 7, the day after I posted my rueful review. It is perfect! The coil is markedly different from the standard #5. The slides and pulls are much sturdier than the cheap & cheesy non-YKK zipper I bought out of desperation. Thanks Miriam and WhoSaysSew.

Through no fault of the vendor, I have not yet received my order, one YKK #5RC (Racquet Coil) zipper. To her credit, Miriam of WhoSaysSo told me it would take 4-5 weeks to ship from Australia to Texas and offered to cancel the order and refund my money. I went ahead with the order on December 6, 2021. Posted in Australia December 14, the zipper languished at the Adelaide airport 2 weeks, arrived in U.S. January 1, 2022 and is now (Jan.6) languishing in Los Angeles. I would like to have bought the zipper from a U.S. vendor, but after many many hours of internet searching and phone calls, I could not find anyone in the U.S. who sells YKK Racquet Coil zippers. Sigh.

Just love the colour choices available in these continuous zipper tapes and the fact that the pulls come with them is an absolute plus. Also the pulls just go onto the zip with such ease. I ordered a colour that was out of stock and was blown away when Miriam contacted me to say it was now in stock. Can't speak highly enough of the service given by WhoSaysSew. Thank you.

I cannot recommend these zips highly enough. Who says sew gets them to you nice and quick. I try a bulk order to keep them in stock. Size 3 for dressmaking and size 5 for bags. When you live in a rural area you need too.

I have been using these zips for quite some time now and i will always use them. The zips can be cut to what ever length you require. If you purchasing several meters of the zip in your desired colour at one time you will always have a zip when you need it. Once you cut off your required length fold up the remaining section of the zip for future use. I love this option and can't speak highly enough about the zips. With the extra zipper heads you can make a single zip pull or add another head and you have a double headed zip pull. The service you receive from Who Says Sew is also wonderful.
