Have you ever tried doing up a zipper only to discover it is stuck thanks to missing, bent or broken zipper teeth?

Thanks to FixnZip, broken zippers don’t have to keep you frustrated. No more alterations, no more tossing items in the garbage and no more storing anything because of a stubborn zipper!

Ever tried zipping up your tent to keep bugs out but the zipper is snagged? Ever tried to stay warm on a cool summer night in a sleeping bag only to discover the zipper does up only half way? How about that knapsack that doesn’t zip up all the way? Or your favourite purse that won’t close properly because the zipper is bent? Have you planned a hiking trip with your buddies but your jacket zipper goes up only part way?

The answer to all those questions is FixnZip, available in three sizes—small, medium and large.

Teeth zipper sizes offered:

Small—2/16 to 4/16 of an inch
Medium—4/16 to 5/16 of an inch
Large—5/16 to 6/16 of an inch

Coil zipper sizes offered:

Small—2/16 to 4/16 of an inch
Medium—4/16 to 5/16 of an inch
Large—5/16 to 7/16 of an inch

The best part is that FixnZip can be used on open-ended zippers or closed-ended zippers. Or start anywhere on the zipper for a smooth zip up. If your zipper is missing teeth, gently glide the proper sized FixnZip over the area and watch as it realigns the remaining teeth.

FixnZip repairs tooth and coil, metal and plastic zippers—now you can think twice before getting rid of anything with a damaged zipper.

  1. Zipper slide
