Some of the most common problems with a golf bag zipper are the teeth coming undone, the zipper jamming, or accidentally ripping the slider off. You don’t want to replace your golf bag just because of some zipper mishaps, and you don’t need to spend money on a seamstress to fix it up for you. Fortunately, FixnZip is here to explain how you can fix the zipper on a golf bag with no sewing in just a couple of minutes.
Removing the slider may be one of the trickier steps, depending on what’s wrong with your zipper. If it’s jammed, you may need to loosen it up with some pencil graphite or specialized lubricant. Next, you may need to use a seam ripper or thin blade to get down to the bottom of the base and slide the zipper off at the bottom. Then, reattach the bottom stop and sew the seams back on.
It’s easy to fix the zipper on a golf bag, thanks to the FixnZip. The first thing you want to do is make sure that you have the right size. A size medium will work for most golf bags, but just in case, you can use our helpful sizing guide to double-check.
To install your new slider, you want to loosen the thumbscrew on the top to open the FixnZip and slide it onto both sides of the teeth and tighten the screw. It’s perfectly normal if the slider doesn’t seem to work when you try to move it. What you want to do is move your slider down as close as possible to the bottom and squeeze on the FixnZip as you try to move it. This pressure will help connect those teeth at the base together. Once that’s moving, your zipper should be in working order.
Once you attach your FixnZip slider, we recommend taking some precautions to prevent further zipper damage. If you notice any bent teeth, you can help guide them back into place with a pair of needle-nose pliers. After a day out on the greens, take a small brush and clean out any dirt that may have made its way into your zipper teeth.
