How to Change a Zip




Basicly, you might have a pretty bag, really pretty but.. the zip could've broken.
You can zip it up and down and it won't zip together.
I guess you'd throw it away, but think about it. The Zipper Handle Thingo I guess you can use it for something.
Why not replace another bag/pencil case/purse etc with a Zipper Handle Thingo?

Step 1: What You'll Need & What to Do

You'll need:
•A Zipper Handle Thingo
•An item (Bag/Purse/Pencil Case) to change the Zipper Handle Thingo on.
•A pair of scissors (I highly recommend scissors that don't have a blunt round tip)

What to do:
1•Place the tip of the scissors into the gap between the Zipper Hole and twist gently,
twist from the side where there's an opening, make sure the Zipper Handle Thingo is on the opposite side, to make it easier.

2•Twist gently. Twist too hard and the Zipper Hole Thing will snap off, or come off while you're using it another day.

3•Replace the Zipper Handle Thingo

4•Press the sides between the Zipper Hole and the back of the Zipper. Feel free to use pliers, I did it by hand though.

    Yeah, I actually did this this morning, but I used a paper-clip. The paper-clip was very simple to put on.
