Zipper...

Post by Dexdoggy » Wed Sep 04, 2019 2:58 pm

Hi!

We have a zipper on our heavy duty cover for our tent when it is packed away, that keeps on separating. Does anyone know of a place in Sydney that one can purchase replacement zipper (the teeth of the zipper seem ok).
Alternatively, does anyone know a repairer in Sydney area?

It's possible that the bit that zips it together (the piece you pull) is worn and needs to be replaced, but you could try squeezing the bit that pulls the zip together with a pair of pliers gently squeeze each side together and see how that goes.

Hi Dexdoggy,

You can squeeze the two parts together like this
