Inleiding

Repairing a broken zipper slider is a relatively simple process that most people can accomplish at home. A malfunctioning slider of a zipper can make the zipper itself unusable as it prevents it from being able to be zipped or unzipped. By simply replacing this broken component, a person will no longer feel the need to throw away the entire suitcase.
