I unzip my HW27SC and it makes folding in the canvas easier. I put pull strings on the zippers that makes it a lot easier to use and do not unzip all the way, about three inches from the top. Easier that trying to connect the zippers at the top everytime.

I would unzip them. We didn't completely unzip and weren't careful one time and ripped off a few teeth of the zipper on one end.

Interesting. I really never thought about it.

I have always unzipped the canvas to about 1" from the top. Not sure why other than when I first watched how to pop up a pop up, they went around and zipped it up. Seemed logical that it started unzipped if they zipped it up to set it up. I do think it aids in laying the canvas flat so as to lessen bunched up parts and allows the top to close properly.

Interesting topic.
