If you’re trying to get out the door in a hurry, you might throw on a pair of pants quickly and zip up, only to realize that your hasty zipper skills broke the fly on your jeans. Use this simple guide to fixing zippers on jeans to solve your dilemma without buying a new pair.
Broken teeth on a jeans zipper prevent the fastener from working properly. Depending on where the broken teeth are, you might be able to continue zippering. If the damaged teeth are more than halfway down the fly, you can fix them by adding a new stop. Otherwise, a complete replacement is necessary. Here is how to add a bottom stop:
Another popular method involves putting the zipper back on its track. The beginning of this process is different from the bottom stop, but you repeat the same steps once you finish the first step.
The first step you must do for this is to take the top stops off both sides. Once again, grab your trusty pliers and remove the top stops. It’s important to move the slider to the bottom of the zipper before you begin.
