An easy, fast way to fix a zipper! Repair without cost.

The zipper of my handbag wasn't working. It was splitting up, like this:

If the rows of "teeth" looks o.k on a zipper I knew that you can just change the slider/sliders. There is also a quite new Swedish product called "Zlide On" which is easy to put.







Anyway, the other day I just got this bright idea!
If the slider looks o.k, maybe it just needs a small adjustment?!


With a pliers I pressed a little on the one side...

and then on the other side of the slider...

And presto! All of a sudden the zipper was working perfectly! Yippie!

Good Luck!

(This of course will work on any zipper! On your jeans, shoes, jacket, tent, sleeping bag or whatever... )

Great job !
I had the opposite problem where the zipper would not catch.
Inspired by your article, I used a small screwdriver to open the gap, and it all works perfectly now !
Cheers
