foot assembly comprises a leg and a laterally shiftable
foot, the foot having (1) a longitudinal groove which
extends upwardly from the sole thereof which accommo
dates the slide fastener elements, and (2) a needle pass
thru slot or opening which allows the needle to secure the
tape to the article to which it is being attached.
