English translation:carrier strip
Explanation:
Within the context as part of a zipper, I think carrier strip is not too far off, unless somebody else has got a better expression. HTH wolfgang

Explanation:
Wolfgang may well be right. (Or not?) What is this zipper used for? In a cursory review of a number of English Web pages and a few German ones I gained the impresion that "Tragstrang" doesn’t seem to be a regular part of a regular zipper: +tragstrang +reißverschluß : AltaVista (German) found no document matching your query.
+tragstrang +reissverschluss: AltaVista found no document matching your query.--
Could it be a special design where a Tragstrang replaces thee Band (zipper tape)?
