Here's a question for Corded Zipper Pulls users:

How do you use Corded Zipper Pulls from TB? Do you use them to replace the metal pulls on your Bihn bag? Do you supplement the metal pull (adding it to the metal pull)? Do you use the pulls on anything else, like clothing?

I just supplement the metal pull to reduce the noise.

Do you like the feel of the corded pulls better?

i prefer the feel of the corded pulls, but the metal ones aren't uncomfortable to handle.

Are there any particular compartments they work best on, or do you apply the corded pulls to every zipper on a bag?

I prefer corded zipper pulls in general. inspired by some eagle creek packing cubes, I rethreaded my cord zipper pulls to go through both holes of the metal pull (crisscrossed- see photo). it makes the cord pull even more perfect: shorter, quieter, and stiffer on the metal zipper pull. In the picture, the top zipper pull has the improved threading.

I added corded pulls to all of the zippers on my Areonaut and Check-Point Flyer using the crisscross method shown above. It reduced the jangling noise of the zippers by +80% and made the pulls much easier to grab in a hurry. I would add them to any bag with multiple zippers.

Brilliant! Now where did I put the pulls that came with my tristar? A few months ago there was a thread on how to cut off the metal pulls and replace them with the cord pulls....but I just could not bring myself to do that. I have seen the cross over method before, but apparently was suffering from tunnel vision. Thank you for the picture and waking me from my tunnel vision daze.

Update: this works great on 7 of the 11 zippers on a tristar. Unfortunately the 4 zippers on the front have a significantly longer zipper pull rendering the cord too short. Can anyone identify the weight of the cord and a potential source, REI maybe?

Hi Darcy,

Are those 5.2" cords still available?
