I can't think for the life of me what you call the piece that you pull up and down on a zip. Anyone know? English dictionary says 'slide', but I'm convinced there's another word.
Explanation: I spy...a metal ring-shaped extension of the zipper tab where I can slip my thumb through the back and pull down/up. Of course, it might just as well be square shaped but it is big enough for the first digit of a thumb to slip through (without getting stuck).
