Introduction: Fixing a Zipper

to fix the pull of the zipper

Step 1: Gather Materials

1. the broken Zipper

2. paper clip

3. tape (any kind will work)

Step 2: Attach the Paper Clip

take the paperclip and bend out the loose end, and put it through the hole of the zipper.

Step 3: Begin Taping It

i used a clear medical tape, but any kind will work

Step 4: Cut the Tape

once the tape roll is gone, admire your working zipper!

    I had the same solution to a coat with a busted zipper. My wife did not like the way it looked. She used a piece of a shoestring. It works well a looks better.

    Note: If you cannot loop the shoestring through the zipper. Use the paper clip as a base and braid the shoestring around the paper clip.

    yea, really good, no more fumbling about looking like aperv, fantab, well done that man.

    I tried this, but had better success using a spare keyring circle. In fact, I actually like the replaced zipper better now than the original =)

    I've used the spare keyring circle too! It works well, is amazingly durable, and far easier to grip with gloves.

    I find the small keyring methods works well too.
