    Also check your local upholstery supply shop, if there's one nearby. Mine sells all kinds of coil and tooth zipper by the foot, plus individual pulls.

    Grizz, free magic, is it peel and stick? or sewn on ?? The site says no stitching needed?? wondering how it holds to sil? That's not a bad price.

    And I will confer, velcro does like to eat mosquito netting.

    I've used FreeMagic in the past, and quite like it. Down side is that you need to order in increments of 25 yard rolls.

    I'm told that smaller lengths of so-called "no-snag velcro" might be found at Walmart or a chain fabric store.
    Other options less than 25 Yards...

    Jo Ann's will have the no snag 3/4 width in 36 inch lengths $3.50-3.99...

    JRB has Full length Omni Tape kits with 140 inches of 1 inch OT...$14.95.

    Velcro is as overused as "just sayin'".

    Ok, I must be dense or something. I cannot find any 2-way zippers which separate in the middle, all separate at each end. Am I supposed to slide the zipper completely off and then "thread" it on the other side?

    Not entirely sure what you're looking to do, but this might be it.

    When you have your fresh coil of zipper and a couple of 2-way sliders here's what you do:

    1. Slide the first zipper pull onto one end, about 4" down the zipper. This will open up the zipper end.
    2. Slide the second zipper pull onto that open end, which now closes it.

    Now you have two zipper pulls that can open and close your zipper from anywhere along the length of it.

    Hobby lobby sells a 100" zipper for $10-$15. You can order online or in the store. It's listed as a sleeping bag zipper.

    if you want them seperate at the ends, you're out of luck, that's a seperating zipper, those have to be custom made by the zipper company. you might be able to find a third party to make one for you (i don't know who) or you might be able to find someone who stocks a few lengths. if you got really lucky, they might have the length you happen to need. if you can have them attached at both ends, you can do like scott says and put 2 sliders on there, but they will have to be attached at both ends. you can easily make something like that yourself to any length you want
