Chain teeth: it is the tooth-like part distributed on the left and right sides of the zipper.

Bolt: it is a long and narrow rectangular part below one end of the chain tooth.

Socket: it is the square part below the other end of the chain teeth.

Slider: it is a mechanical device that can move up and down. When the small zipper slider is at the bottom, it should be just above the socket.
