I've never successfully shortened a zipper either without destroying it. Somewhere there was a thread about which are the best zippers to buy and someone posted some links to shops. I'll try to find them again and post here.

ZipperStop (AKA A.Feibusch)--those guys are great!
I've been buying zippers from them for years. I've had the YKK color chart for about 5 years, and will go through and match all my upcoming projects and order a bunch at one time. They can also do custom lengths.
