I have a juki DNU1541 industrial sewing machine with walking foot.  I am trying to find out how to change the foot on it to a zipper foot.  I cannot find anything on the internet that shows you how to change feet and nothing in the instruction manual.  Any suggestions?

These feet will work. One is the left zipper foot and one is the right. You can use the existing center foot:

Basically all you do is to unscrew the outer foot screw, remove it and then install the new one.

The feet on the Juki DNU-1541 are changed by loosening the screw (center foot) or removing the screw (outer foot).

The R+L zipper feet I purchased also included specialized center feet.

When I designed / built my custom enclosure, I started using the zipper feet, but I found the stitches were too close to the teeth.

That's when I switched to using my top stitch feet. The top stitch feet placed the sewing at exactly the correct location for proper zipper operation.
