How To Fix A zipper?

Here’s how you’ll fix a broken zipper in five seconds. No joke. I swear it works.

I know this method doesn’t work on all zippers, but if your zipper is open halfway, there’s an 80% chance it will work for you.

So after you’ve done the ol’ rubber band trick only to find that didn’t fix your problem, take these steps:

1. remove any stray strings or hair from the teeth of the zipper with tweezers or pliers (remember when I said be careful not to break anything? this could be why) 2. place wax paper over the teeth of the zipper, then use an iron to heat the wax paper 3. use a spoon handle or other plastic item to push the zipper teeth back into place 4. slide a thin strip of paper between the zipper teeth to smooth it out 5. wax over that bitch

step 1: remove any stray hairs or strings from the zipper with pliers or tweezers.

Step 2: Place wax paper over the zipper and use an iron to heat the wax paper

step 3: once heated, use a spoon handle or other plastic item to smooth out your newly melted zipper. Repeat as necessary until you get all your little buggers in order again!

Step 4: slide a thin strip of paper between the teeth so everything will be excellent and clean when you zip up again!

How to fix a zipper on a jacket:

1) If you have a pair of jeans or pants with a broken zipper, you can replace the slider by unscrewing it from the teeth. In this manner, you won’t need to know how to fix a jacket zipper.

Once the old slider is removed, you can screw on a new one that fits your needs. You might also need to resew the bottom part of your pant’s opening shut if there’s still excess material left over after replacing the zip puller with an upgraded model.

2) Pull off any loose or stray thread before moving forward. You don’t want those threads getting stuck in the zipper as well! Use scissors and gently cut away anything that’s hanging onto your garment for dear life. Trim it as close to the zipper pull as possible.

How to fix a zipper on a backpack:

First, you need to determine how the zipper is stuck. It might be that one end of the zipper has popped off the teeth, or it may be that a tooth is missing from the top stop. This can happen when a tooth comes loose and slides down into the track.

If your backpack zipper slider comes out of its groove, you can fix it by placing something heavy over both sides of the slider to hold them in place while you glue them back together with superglue. Or, if they are metal, use pliers to curl up metal tabs around either side of the groove on each side of the slider, then squeeze them together until they are flat against each other. Then apply super glue to hold them in place before closing the zipper.

If one or more teeth are missing, you will need to remove the zipper slider and replace them with new ones. Locate two teeth that match in size and shape on either side of the missing tooth(s). Loosen the slider by sliding it toward the open end of the track for more oversized zippers or towards its bottom stop for smaller zippers. You should be able to slide it off without having to unhook it entirely from any plastic holidays.

Now thread your needle with heavy-duty thread (though regular cable will work if you don’t mind a few skipped stitches). Sew through each corresponding pair of matching teeth, pulling tight until all four sides are joined together again. If there’s not much gap between the teeth, you can also glue to hold them together for faster drying. Pull your thread taut so that it’s all perfectly straight and even.
