When inserting separating zippers or mock-fly zipper fronts, you have the option inserting the zipper and cutting off the extra length after attaching the waistband. To avoid accidentally zipping the pull-tab off, affix a safety pin across the zipper teeth. The safety-pin prevents the zipper tab from moving, allowing you to complete the garment without worrying about losing the tab!
