Det är intressant. På polska säger vi "zamek błyskawiczny" som bokstavligen betyder "ett blixtsnabbt lås" alltså "ett blixtlås".

Nice translation of this relatively new word into swedish. In Dutch we say "rits" which is more or less like the sound a zipper makes. I wonder what the germans use?

We call it 'Reißverschluss'. An ugly word, if you ask me. Yours is way better. :-)

Danke, now I remember again. Maybe in time it will be 'shortened' to Reiss. Then it will be quite similar to the duch version :-)

I guess it will be 'zipper' one day. Like a cardigan is more fashionable than a 'Strickjacke' and a 'Oberteil' is more and more often called a 'top'.
