Zipper organizer

July 1st, 2011 / By: / How-To Articles

Organize zippers on a Lazy Susan for easy access.

Problem

Zippers are cumbersome to organize and store, and are hard to access easily.

Solution

Organize and store zippers of various lengths on a hanging Lazy Susan, allowing easy access to sizes and colors.

Process

  • andwich a bearing assembly between a round piece of plywood (approximately 14 inches in diameter) and a small square of plywood.
  • Then attach a rectangle piece of plywood wider than the round piece to the small square for mounting to the ceiling.
  • Mount cup hooks to hang 24-inch, 36-inch, 48-inch, 60-inch, 72-inch, 84-inch, 102-inch and 120-inch zippers of each size and color. With 14 hooks (12 on the perimeter and two inside the circle), the Lazy Susan can easily hold 240 zippers.
  • Spin the plywood base to access the zipper needed.

Tip

  • Over-sizing the bearing assembly is recommended, as there is a lot of weight involved.
