Rob Smith, a quadriplegic with limited hand function, shares how the product Zip Grip allows him to independently operate the zipper of his jacket.


“Doing zips with bad hand function is always a bit of a pain. Sometimes you can manage alright. But, a little bit of help is never a bad thing.”

A Zip Grip clips on to any zipper. The Zip Grip has a circle on the end of it and as Rob states, “you can put your finger (through the circle) and do the zip up and down much more easily.”

Watch the video to see how to clip the Zip Grip onto a zipper and how Rob easily zips his jacket up and down.
