Number 1 and 2 Padlock Hasp Sliders The best two zipper pulls for a backpack I can find on the planet, and still I have not been able to buy them. I want to make backpacks, probably the first run of 100 in Quezon City, Philippines; I am stymied to find the clear and present path to the factory. --------------------------------- Bangkok Thailand - Southeast Asia Khao San Road Thursday, December 20, 2007 Andy of HoboTraveler.com --- ----------------------------------
I call this the Israeli Slider or the Israeli Padlock Slider, some company called Vision maybe makes it, I am not sure, and I named it the Israeli Slider because that is where I saw it, on some Lowe Alpine Bag, never to be seen again. A Canadian who purchased a bag from that the Mountain Equipment Coop. then I took this photo in Israel, ergo the name. It may be called a Hasp Slider, or Hasp Padlock Slider, whatever the case, it is hiding from me.
I visited this company in Salon Ohio, and they seem to sell something, the problem is minimum orders and price. I need to go right to the factory I think or at least get about 20 samples before I purchase. Ohio Travel Bag Hasp Padlock Slider
Number 2 best slider I have seen on the planet: I call this the Philippines Padlock Slider or the Robinson Mall Slider in the Malate Ermita Area of Manila, Philippines, I took this photo of a slider on a bag made by Holiday or a.k.a as Concord.
I think the next step is to find a zipper slider manufacture here in Asia and go knock on their door. Alibaba.com is a hope, and I submitted the number one to the vendors, and got back a couple of years ago. Send us a sample, I thought, if I had a sample, I would know already where to buy.
I am high-speed internet and armed with Skype, there is more hope than in my sojourns in Africa where I leave the West Behind or is this the East.
