You can replace a lost or broken zipper slider in under a minute with these kits, saving you a costly trip to the tailor. Not just for clothes, they are compatible with any regular or large metal or plastic zippers on sleeping bags, tents, boat covers, galoshes, etc. They even work on many zippers with a missing tooth or two.

Simply fit the two-part replacement slider onto the teeth and tighten the integral thumbscrew. Two pulls are included, a split ring and a string tab, which can be attached to either side of the slider. Corrosion resistant, the sliders are die-cast zinc with a dark nickel plating. The thumbscrew and spring are stainless steel.

Available in medium for size 5 to 8 zippers and large for size 8 to 10 zippers. The size of a zipper is usually embossed on the back of the slider or the bottom stop. If the size isn’t marked, or the slider is lost, you can measure the width across the meshed teeth; zippers between 1/4" and 5/16" wide are size 5 to 8, and zippers between 5/16" and 7/16" are size 8 to 10.

Made in USA. A great addition to a "just in case" repair kit.
