This contest is fueled by the following news: It's hard to imagine modern clothes without zippers. Not only clothes, but boots, bags, wallets, and toys use them nowadays. In other words zipper is so much normal to people that we consider it's always been part of our lives. In clothing and boots and shoes it's more convenient and certainly faster than laces and buttons. Many clothes models look much better with zippers than they do with classical buttons. However this device hasn't always been with us. Few people know that it was designed and patented exactly 93 years ago this week in 1914. As many great inventions it took the author several years before he convinced manufacturers and designers to start using it. When clothes and boots with zipper hit the market shelves, consumers loved them and proved to the retailers where the new gold mine is. Since then zipper has been used in variety of products and industries. If you look at any zippers on your clothes, there's a 60 percent chance that they will have letters YKK on them. If you never asked yourself what these three letters mean, now is a good time to do so. YKK is an international company that produces zippers and has its headquarters in Japan. That 60% chance we were talking about roughly equals to the share of YKK in the world output of zippers. Yes, they are that big. And let's face it - this useful invention could have solved Britney Spears problem is just a blink of an eye. Now that you know some of the history behind this useful device, zip up and have a good day.
