The Zip fastener as we know it today was invented in 1913 by Gideon Sundback and patented in 1917 as the Separable Fastener.

The term "zipper" came into use in 1923.

Not many people know that.

Better than using it for a £140 pub quiz question. You'd have got it wrong!

Speak to Baird Leisure, I'm sure they get lots of phone calls about stuff like this.
I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

However as no-one put either 1913 or 1917 last night the Snowball still wouldn't have been won!

1916 was closest I think.

The Bass red triangle was Britain's first registered trademark in 1876. I learnt that from a beer mat in a pub a few weeks ago.
