Problem attaching zipper foot

I can't attach the zipper foot. There doesn't seem to be enough space around the little bar on it for the 'grabber' thing to pick it up. I have no problem attaching the regular presser foot. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

if you need it right away I would suggest to look in the yellow pages for a sewing machine repair shop & they might have what you need, or they might have to order it.

another solution is going to sewingpartsonline.com or sewforless.com & see if they have one

SOURCE: The Presser Bar on my Singer 66 does not move up or down when I use the Presser Bar Lever. It seems to be stuck solid and therefore it will not lower onto the feed dogs to enable me to sew. The Presse

it's possible that the presser bar could be bent or damaged, the only way to know what is exactly wrong would be to take it to a sewing machine repair shop

Most modern machines have snap off and snap on feet. Grasp the foot that is on there and push down. Then while lowering the foot, align the little bar on the zipper foot and watch it snap in. Easy.

It really depends on what your zipper foot looks like. There are several that can be used with the Pfaff machines.

What type of foot do I need when attaching popper closure tape to a duvet cover.It needs to leave more space under foot for popper height.


You do NOT want to sew over the popper. Instead, use a narrow zipper foot and adjust your machine needle to stitch just on the very edge of the tape. Hitting a popper will definitely break your needle and possibly knock the machine out of time.

Be sure to get the right foot to fit your machine!

Your machine's zipper foot may not look like this, but it should give you the basic idea.

How can I attach a zipper foot to my unidentified machine?


Assuming you have the correct zipper foot attachment for your machine, you should be able to attach it like any other presser foot. On some machines, you may need to adjust the needle position to the right or left so the needle will not hit the presser foot when stitching.

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

How to use a zipper foot please? I have lost instructions and have no idea which is the zipper foot or how to use it can you help please.


  1. Step 1 To prepare the fabric for a centered zipper application, use the standard presser foot to baste the opening of the fabric shut using 5/8 inch seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open. Place the zipper teeth side down on the seam allowance and pin the zipper to the seam allowance only.
  2. Step 2 Release the standard presser foot from your machine. There may be a button or lever behind the foot that you need to press. Put the standard foot in its holder or someplace where it won’t get lost.
  3. Step 3 Decide which side of the machine you want to attach the zipper foot to. Zipper feet are asymmetrical, with one side that’s wider than the other. You’ll want to put the narrow side toward the zipper teeth, and the wider side away from the zipper teeth.
  4. Step 4 Attach the zipper foot to the sewing machine. You may need to line up the bar on the zipper foot with the presser foot holder, then lower the presser foot by lowering the lever. Raise the presser foot and make sure the zipper foot is securely attached.
  5. Step 5 Place the prepared fabric with the pinned zipper in the sewing machine. Lower the needle into the zipper tape and the seam allowance only, then lower the zipper foot. Stitch the zipper tape to the seam allowance. To sew the other side of the zipper to the seam allowance, remove the zipper foot from the sewing machine and install it on the other side of the presser foot holder.
  6. Step 6 Topstitch the outside of the fabric to each side of the zipper tape, making sure that the zipper foot is on the appropriate side of the machine for each side. Remove the basting with a seam ripper.
