Pocket Converter (Velcro to Zipper)
This is an insert that we made for our chest rigs so we could change out a hook & loop pocket to be a zipper pocket without permanent modification. This insert will also work on any pocket that has a hook & loop closure. It basically covers the existing hook & loop with a folded insert which contains a zipper in the middle. It also has loop lining the inside area, so if you had a lined pocket and used it to attach cards or something with a hook backing this will allow that to still work.
Most chest rigs, plate carriers and shoulder bags have large document/map pockets which are held closed by hook & loop along the opening of the pocket. Everyone knows that hook & loop is great for alot of things but sometimes you wish that large pocket was a zipper open pocket. Maybe its because of the noise from opening it, or how salt water can affect how well it stays closed, or how even the best velcro looses its holding ability with time and use. Whatever your reason for wanting a zipper in place of that hook & loop we now have a quick easy solution to make your hook & loop pocket a zipper pocket without having custom work done or sewing it yourself.
BE ADVISED, ANY POCKETS UNDER 5" END UP WITH A VERY SMALL OPENING.
THESE INSERTS ARE CUSTOM MADE TO WHATEVER SIZE YOU NEED. MEASURE THE OPENING OF THE POCKET YOU WANT TO CONVERT, CHOOSE THE SIZE/PRICE GROUP IT FALLS UNDER, AT CHECKOUT PUT THE EXACT LENGTH IN INCHES IN THE NOTES... best practice is to remove about .25 inch from the length for fitting purposes.
MAKING SURE THE PIECE FITS IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU !!!!!
We can make the insert in any color you want but as most of the fabric color would not show and you will mostly see the zipper we have only put the options for colors of zippers we have. If there is another color zipper you want or want a special color cordura let us know in an email.
