Grandma J has picked the word Zipper! Zippers can be generic
or come in boy and girl models
The B. F. Goodrich Company coined the name Zipper in 1923 for the line of rubber overshoes that it made using the fastener. The name slowly came to be associated with the fastener itself, and eventually acquired generic status.
But, the zipper was invented a long time before that, and, it wasn't called a zipper....and Wikipedia is looking for some substantiated answers. Grandma J doesn't have any.
This is a Zipper Lake in Taiwan....pretty darn cool!
