A broken zipper can easily ruin your favorite clothing items and accessories. Bags, pants, dresses, shoes, they can all be pretty much unusable if they have a zipper that doesn’t close.
Luckily, though, fixing a broken zipper at home is actually a lot easier than you think – no need to take your clothes to a tailor and wait half a day or more to get them back.
Thanks to the simple trick shown in the video below, you will be able to fix a broken zipper yourself, and it should only take you a few minutes to do so.
The first thing you should do is slide the zipper down to the very bottom of the track. The next step is to push the edges of the slider down using the pliers. The goal here is to make sure they grip the teeth better.
Be careful, though! You shouldn’t press too hard, or else there is a chance you’ll make zipping up more difficult, which totally defeats the purpose of you doing all this in the first place.
After you’ve pressed both sides down, pull the slider up. And that’s it! The zipper should now work! Take a look at the video below to go through this process, step-by-step, once more!
