I laughed at myself for never checking what YKK meant...After years of seeing it...

Thank goodness for Google!

From Fun Trivia {.com} "YKK was founded in Japan as a zipper manufacturing company in 1934 by Tadao (pronounced in English as Tah-dah-o) Yoshida. In the early years, Mr. Yoshida's company carried his name; it was called Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha--or "YKK" for short. (That long Japanese name translates roughly into English as "Yoshida Company Limited.") Over the years, the letters "YKK" were stamped onto the zippers' pull tabs, and thus YKK became known as the Company's trademark."

I hope this helps your chances on Jeopardy Kerin! Don't Forget me... :)
