Zipper Helper

This Zipper Helper was created by a 3D printing enthusiast to assist their cousin who cannot use their left arm. :

“My cousin can’t use his left arm and I have seen him so many times opening metal zippers, that I decided to do something about it. With EasyZipper you can use your teeth or some other means, to open your zippers.

This EasyZipper is a generic design that will let you fit most of the standard zippers. Just use a cable tie and you are done. I hope it will be useful for many people.
You can watch some easy instructions in this video
