Have you ever had a zipper without the slide on it? It is just very hard to unzip and zip up the zipper.

So here is a very cheap replacement that electronic hobbyists will like.
It involves a telephone clip that connects two wires together when you insert two wires and push the button down.

Step 1:

You need to gather:

Pliers and wire cutter

Telephone wire connectors

Wire (Any color you like...)

Zipper with broken handle...



Oh, Yes. One more thing...

Rate and enjoy!

(it's free!!!)

<p>Nice, but in an emergency situation you can use a simple paperclip.</p>
<p>Just be aware that some of these connectors are filled with a type of grease to make the connection waterproof. You probably don't want that stuff on your clothes. </p>
<p>The hole that the zipper pull goes in is broke. Is there anything I can do to make it work?</p>

Can't believe I didn't think of it, there is a collection of these splices next to me. It has all the essentials; cheap, fast, simple, and best of all unique.
<p>Agreed. I kinda feel dumb for not thinking of this. </p>
found lots of interesting information here. The post was professionally written and I feel like the author has extensive knowledge in the subject. Keep it that way. <br><a href="http://www.airportdirect.com/luton_airport_transfer" rel="nofollow">Luton Airport Transfer</a> <br>
