Sadly not. Most zip-togethers are designed that way and are not often
interchangeable with other makes, sometimes not eve with other models
from the same manufacturer. The zips themselves differ quite
dramatically, as do the lengths of both back and all-round ones. Plus
the height needs to be matched, otherwise it'll be too tight or too
loose.

Of course, there's a chance that he may be able to find a match, but
it's not as simple as you suggest.
