ZIPPER REPAIR

ZIPPER SPLITS OPEN

Got a jacket, tent, bag or pack, sleeping bag or moto luggage that splits open when it’s supposed to be zipped closed? Many people think their tent or jacket is trash bus as long as the zipper teeth are not damaged, the starter pin and starter box are intact on jacket and sleeping bag zippers, you just need a new slider, not a new zipper. Sliders wear out or get bent and no longer mesh the teeth together. Pricing on zipper slider replacements are affordable and the turnaround time can often be done on the spot if you’re local.     

BROKEN TEETH

Molded plastic (Vision) and metal zippers have teeth that are fused in place around a cord that is attached to the zipper tape.  When these teeth are missing, you will need a new zipper. Pricing to replace a zipper depends on the zipper type (one-way, two-way, waterproof, metal, coil, molded tooth) and garment construction (full or partial wind-flap, snaps, lining, insulation, seam tape).

DAMAGED TEETH

Coil zippers are made from extruded nylon a spring-like coil that are stitched to the zipper tape.  If the teeth are damaged or pulling away from the zipper tape because the stitching is worn, then you need a new zipper. We replace full zippers on all outerwear, tents, sleeping bags, packs and bags including motor sport soft luggage, dog crates and miscellaneous items. Zipper replacement pricing is estimated by the foot for tents and sleeping bags, by the inch on bags and packs, and outerwear depends upon garment construction and zipper type.

BROKEN STARTER BOX

Generally, jackets and sleeping bags have zippers separate at the bottom with either two starter pins for two-way zippers (zippers with two sliders so you can unzip from the bottom of the zipper) or a starter box and a starter pin for one-way zippers (zippers with one slider).  If the starter box or the starter pin are missing or broke then the zipper needs to be replaced. Pricing to replace a zipper depends on the zipper type (one-way, two-way, waterproof, metal, coil, molded tooth) and the garment construction (full or partial wind-flap, snaps, lining, insulation, seam tape).
