Default piping foot

Hi,
I am new to this forum and was looking for some advice. I am trying to attach piping to some loose covers but my zipper foot won't stitch close enough so I was thinking of getting a piping foot but not sure of type and size. I am using 5mm piping but want to use the foot when sewing the pieces together too not just making up the piping. The fabric is fairly thick cotton and I wondering if I should buy a 3/16" or a bigger 1/4" to take account of the fabric thickness too? Also, my 20 year old Frister Rossmann uses clip on feet but I can only see screw on piping feet - I just unscrew the clip on attachment to screw on the foot don't I ? - my manual has no advice for different feet and websites don't seem to list feet for frister rossmann machines at all. Thanks for the help.
