Straightforward Steps to Repair a Split Zipper

Considering the many clothes we wear that have zippers, most of us have experienced a split in a zipper at some point or the other. Jackets, bags and jeans are some of the common items that have zippers.

A zipper is a mechanical fastener and must undergo wear and tear owing to the many times it is opened and closed.

Most people have a pile of clothes they no longer wear just because the zipper got split, but that does not have to be the case.

Repairing a zipper will take you five minutes and with just a single tool, you do not need to throw away anything you still need.


This is what you should do:

  1.   With basic pliers, gently take out the stop which forms the head of the zipper.

  1.  Take a look at the condition of the pull; chances are that the zipper got split because the pull is bent.

  1.       Using the pliers, gently align the pull into position.

  1.       Once the pull has been re-attached at the bottom, ensure it does not get stuck while sliding. If it does, work on the pull again and again. You can buy a new pull from a craft store to replace a damaged one.

  1.       Replace the stop back at the top to cover the zipper.

If you feel that you are dealing with a complex zipper, go through a full repair guide for more insight into what you are supposed to do.
