How to Fix Broken Zippers

If you are like me, then you have faced the aggravation of dealing with broken zippers on gear and clothing.  While it is a simple problem in theory to fix, the reality is that it is potentially quite frustrating, time consuming, and expensive (relatively speaking).

This morning, I came across the website of FixnZip, makers of zipper repair products.

Check out their website for more information.  And please check out too their videos below.

I am intrigued enough that I plan on buying a few repair kits.  I’ll be sure to let you know what I find out.
