Closure of a Zip with the Z-lock

The Z-lock is a small security lock with a removable, specially bent hasp. The lock can be added to any existing zipper, which meets the conditions mentioned above.
It has a good fit to the zipper, and will not stand out. The lock is rounded, so no damage to the shoes or clothes will happen. The hasp has a tight fit to the zipper and can’t be felt inside.
The shoes or clothes can be worn also without a lock after modification; the tiny holes are almost invisible.
Possible application: shoes, clothes, bags, etc.
what does this mean for sub’s and slaves: no more clandestine removal of shoes or clothes!
How to mount the lock on a clinging zipper of tight fitting dress or shoe:
Due to its special shape the hasp can be laced in on the already dressed shoe, e.g.
Manual for modification of a existing zipper to mount a Z-lock
The zipper’s slider is in its most upper position. The slider’s pull tab is turned downward.
At the end of the tab make a mark with a crayon onto the zippers’s tape left and right of the zipper closure, symmetrically. Pull away the the overlapping borders of the leather or textile. Control the position by placing the lock’s hasp for a trial. The overlapping borders may not be perforated!
Heat the included pin at its tip only, whilst keeping it at the other end, with a gas flame (best method). The pin will not get hot at the grip’s end in a while. If it’s becoming to hot, cool it in a glass of water and start again.
If the tip of the pin is hot enough, burn a hole at the marked position at either side of the zipper through the tape. Burning the holes instead of punching has the advantage, that the holes will not fray. You may also punch the holes if you prefer.
Be careful with light coloured zipper tapes! Make a test hole first inside in the tape, which is not seen.
