What is a vinyl siding zipper tool?
Tuesday, August 31, 2021
A vinyl siding zipper is one of those handy specialty tools you’ll wonder how you ever did without once you’ve used it. Just hook it under the groove between two vinyl siding strips, and then pull down and away, to unlatch them. The tool also makes it easier to reattach the siding by running it along the groove as you press the pieces together.
But wait! Before you decide against putting another gadget in your toolbox, there’s more: the zipper also makes it easier to detach and reconnect the rail strip along the top of mobile home skirting when accessing a crawl space. Expect to pay about $10.
And you can pay a little more at $15 for our personal favorite: a combination vinyl zipper, mini pry bar, and nail puller. Both are available at Amazon and most big-box home improvement stores.
