What is a zipper slider?
A slider is the mechanism that opens and closes your zipper–not to be confused with the pull tab. Over time, the internal parts wear out and stop meshing the zipper teeth together, which causes the zipper to separate. There are tons of different zipper types and sizes, each requiring their own slider. If you would like to learn how to switch your own slider, check out our blog post on changing sliders. Otherwise, send it in and we’ll swap it for you.
