Types of Zip Puller Aids for the Elderly

Zipper Pulls

Zipper pulls are accessibility aids for people who suffer from arthritis or who have difficulties grasping and pulling small zips. They fold or wrap around zip holes to provide a larger surface area to pull on which means less strength is needed to work the zip.

Button Hooks

Button hooks are made from an easy-to-grip handle with a shaped wire which surrounds the button and pulls it through its corresponding hole with a simple twisting motion. They make what can be a fiddly and frustrating task, quick and simple.


Some models feature both a zip pull at one end and a button hook at the other. They cover all bases and make getting dressed much easier no matter what fastening you have.
