The Ziptune® musical zipper (new patent)

Inventor Stan Divranos, of Chino, California, has just been granted a US patent (Aug 29th 2017) for his Ziptune® musical zipper.

“Various types of zippers are known in the prior art. However, what has been needed is a musical zipper including a zipper having a slider, a continuous C-shaped flap having a pair of outer ends attached to a front surface of the slider, a pull tab engaging the flap, a pair of interlocking teeth having a first interlocking member and a second interlocking member, a speaker disposed on the front surface of the slider, and a sound chip disposed within the slider. What has been further needed is for the slider to be configured to travel from a first end of the zipper to a second end of the zipper to connect the first interlocking member with the second interlocking member and for the slider to be configured to travel from the second end of the zipper to the first end of the zipper to disconnect the first interlocking member from the second interlocking member. Lastly, what has been needed is for the sound chip to be configured to play a musical tune when the sound chip is activated.“
