Inleiding

When a zipper pull breaks, or the slider simply wears out, you don’t need to replace the entire zipper. Just replace the zipper slider and the stop that keeps it from sliding off. This is a quick repair that can make the difference between a zipper that doesn’t work at all and one that works like it’s brand new. Determine the size of your replacement slider by looking on the bottom of your existing slider.

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

Off of another zipper

Amazon has replacement parts, but I found you can get almost any zipper parts from a sailing supply company called sailrite.com.

Perfect...thank you! I had seen about 10 other videos on how to do this repair but yours was the one that showed me exactly how to do it and it worked perfectly the first time. Much appreciated!

Thank you! This was great - I ordered the knippers and replacement parts for a jacket of mine that I broke, as I know my children will be breaking there's sooner or later. It cost me $10 instead of $40+ to replace a jacket.

Where did you get the replacement end plastic endstop?

Deborah Spaulding -

I can not thank you enough for this tutorial. I had contacted a seamstress and she said it would have to be replaced. Thank heavens I found your site. The zipper pull has been replaced on the zipper and I'm awaiting my order of stops to replace the top stop. Thank you, Thank you!

Hi

The tutorial is fab and I checked out sailrite for zippers which brings me a step further, but how do I determine the right size zipper. There is no numbers or anything on my current broken zipper. I thought about measuring the bottom or the top and going from that measurement? Any feedback appreciated.

thanks Jenny

Sometimes, if the slider is not broken, but it doen’t connect the two sides any more, you can very, very gently squize the upper and lower side of the slider. Most of the times it will be o.k. again.

You can check other zippers (if any) on pockets as they’re often the same size. A good quality zipper will have the size stamped on the back. Standard exterior coat zippers are size 5.

Thanks for keeping this tutorial up! I broke a tooth near the bottom stopper on a zipper and this helped me to fashion a fix!

'''Plastic zipper on a comforter coverlet will not stay zipped… it splits on both sides of the zipper. There’s no # on bottom of slider(made in China I think!) so how do I fix it? It’s a small slider.. nothing actually seems to be wrong with the slider! The plastic zipper just won’t start… it gaps open every time you zip it! In front & in back of the slider!!

Marcia - Antwoord

How can I fix one with the slider (plastic teeth) when the stop is hidden (Sewn in) And I managed to get both sides feeding into the slider just fine but when I zip it, the zipper behind just pulls apart again. (This is on a Large sectional-sized throw pillow) so… it’s on track on both sides, the slider moves, but the zipper won’t stay zipped. It just pulls agape again. Help please
