KATM Jeans Hardware - Black - Refill Kit V2.0

KATM Jeans Hardware - Black - Refill Kit V2.0

Subscription Save
Zipper Length

Version two of the KATM Jeans Hardware kits contain easier-to-attach buttons with an internal guide inside the back of the button, and spiked nails so that each and every button should be a success.

Refill Kit including hardware without tools, for subsequent pairs of jeans. Pair these refill kits with one of the original Jeans Hardware Kits with the tools. 

We've chosen some beautiful metal finishes, taking inspiration from our favourite ready to wear looks in denim at the moment and paired them with a high quality Australian Made YKK zipper for our refill kits.

What's included in the kit?

Hardware for 1 pair of jeans:

1 x YKK locking jeans zipper nickel finish (MADE IN AUSTRALIA)

1 x Zipper "top stop" for use in shortening the zipper to a custom length

1 x Jeans Button and Nail 

6 x Rivets and standard nails (most RTW jeans have 6 or less rivets per pair)

2 x Longer rivet nails (for installing rivets on bulky coin pockets - you might not need these)


Please see the listing for the Full kit should you require the tools to be included. 

What size zipper should I choose?

If you have a pattern in mind, please check the specific details and required notions list within that pattern prior to purchase.

15 cm should work for Men's and Women's low rise and mid rise jeans.  It may also work for some smaller sizes of high waisted jeans. 

19cm for high waisted jeans in most sizes.

There is an extra top stop per zipper included, so if you need to shorten your zipper, you can do this at home.  You will need some pliers / metal snips etc.  After removing the required amount of teeth, clamp the top stop above the top zipper tooth to ensure you do not accidentally pull the zipper pull off the teeth altogether.

Ordering online

Placing your first online order?

Ordering from a new store, or placing your first online fabric order can feel a little risky!

A+R Fabrics strives to create an easy + enjoyable shopping experience, whether it's your first of tenth order with us. 

We've tried to include as much information about each fabric as possible, but we welcome any questions you may have about project suitability, etc.

We offer swatches as a way of viewing our collection prior to purchase. 


We offer free swatches to AU + NZ customers so that you can check out our fabrics in person. 

This way you can check the colour, weight, handfeel and even run the swatch under your sewing machine to ensure it's going to be the right choice for you project. 

Swatches are avaiable to friends in other areas - the website will charge a small fee to cover postage. 

Order Fulfilment

A+R is a micro sized (sole operator) business which means our fulfilment times can be a little longer than some of our friends in the Industry. 

The current fulfilment time is 2-3 business days.
