How To Fix a Broken or Separated Zipper
How to Repair a Broken Zipper
The most frustrating of zipper issues is when you zip the darn thing up and nothing happens. The zipper remains open, even though the zipper head moved all the way to the top. What an embarrassing moment for your zipper, but luckily, it's an easy fix, because your zipper is just getting off-track.
You will need to gather a few supplies before getting started on this repair. If you don’t have them readily available at home, they can all be purchased on Amazon.com:
- Pliers: I suggest using a needle nose plier since they are made to use in tight hard to reach spaces. The Stanley Needle Nose Plier is a reliable option if you do not own a pair of pliers.
- Sewing Thread: You will want to use an extra-strength thread for this denim repair. I recommend using the Coats & Clark Extra-Strong Thread that is made to work with denim.
- Sewing Needle: You are going to need a heavy-duty sewing needle that is strong enough to go through denim. The Singer Heavy Duty Hand Needles Kit comes with a variety of options so you can determine which size works best for your repair.
Next Step:Now you’re ready to remove the metal bumper.
