Who invented zipper?

As for who invented the zipper, not everybody agrees. Most people give credit to American Whitcomb Judson. Originally, Judson intended his creation, which he called the "clasp-locker," as a replacement for shoelaces. It didn't quite manage to do that, but, after a series of refinements (it jammed quite a bit early on), the zipper became a hit. The US Army was an early adopter, applying "zippers to the clothing and gear of the troops of World War I."

Some sources say it was Gideon Sundback but, nobody knows for sure.
