can your zipper be shortened

I have a gap between zippers on the boat top canvas and the zippers on the isenglass side panels on a searay sundancer. The zipper are approximately 30 inches in length.

Can your zipper be shortened to fit the application mentioned.

Good morning,
Yes your enclosure is the exact reason that these zippers were created. The zipper is fused, so you can cut it to any length you want on your boat. Just zip it into place, and use a pair of scissors to clip it off. EZ-Xtend boat zippers come with two extra parts, one is a stainless steel crimp on zipper stop. It goes onto the last tooth at the bottom of the zipper, on the side the slider lives on. The second item is a small piece of no fray tape, it just give a clean finish to the bottom of the zipper.
Hope this helps and that you give them a try. They are most helpful.
Have a great day!
