A few years ago, I splashed out on some new motorcycle clothing. Really good stuff. It's lasted well, but for some reason the zipper on both the trousers AND the jacket chose the same week to die (that'd be the week just after the warranty expired)
I saw a great Instructable a little while ago which showed how to use a paper clip and some Sugru
to fix a broken zipper pull.
The motorcycle clothing I wanted to fix needed something rather heavy duty so I figured I could use a similar method but improve the strength of the zipper pull.
List of stuff:
Paperclips (various sizes)
Soldering Iron + Solder
Tea (Very important)
Bit of wire
Crocodile Clips (Not pictured above)
A sheet of paper (Not pictured above)
