Abstract

See full text

A multi-piece slider member (150) is provided for use with interlocking fastening strips (120, 130). The slider member (150) is slidably disposed upon the interlocking fastening strips (120, 130) to facilitate the occlusion and deocclusion of the fastening strips when moved towards first and second ends thereof. The slider member (150) comprises a first housing segment (160), a second housing segment (170), and an attachment mechanism (200) for use in assembling the first and second housing segments together onto the interlocking fastening strips (120, 130). The attachment mechanism (200) includes an appendage (210) projecting from the first housing segment and a cooperating slot (250) formed in the second housing segment. The appendage (210) has a barb (212) formed along the length while the slot (250) has a notch (252) formed along its length. When the first and second housing segments (160, 170) are moved together during assembly, the slot (250) receives the appendage (210) while the barb (212) interacts with the notch (252) to provide at least one assembly position for the first and second housing segments (160, 170).
