Does anyone have the zipper chain pulls used on the 56
(perhaps 55 also) Caribbean interior cushions?

I don't know what size Packard used on those cushions but this #10 might be a possibility and is sold by the continuous length. You order the sliders separately and the tabs are a bit different so it looks as if you would need to move or fabricate something to duplicate the chain part of the pull. If #10 is too large this place also has some slightly smaller also in brass. Maybe the upholsterer would have an idea of the size needed and there are other stores that also sell upholstery zippers that might have more options. https://www.zippershipper.com/10-zippers

Thanks Howard but all I need are the chain pulls - looks like no more that four inches each. The zippers are fine and installed. The upholsterer died a few years ago.
