A lot of people have been emailing me lately about FixnZip Double Zip Repair. Yes, I will show you how to fix a broken Double Zipper! I will show you How to Repair a Zipper which has Two Sliders. Because FixnZip Kit will work ALL types of a zippers. First off, a double zipper has two sliders on the same zipper track that can open the zipper from either end. You can find a double zipper on items like jackets, sleeping bags, and tents. Sometimes the two sliders meet in the middle. However, some are flush and zip away from each other. In short, the FixnZip works on ALL these zipper types. Two Slider zippers are just one type. FixnZip innovative tool can be used to repair ALL zipper types. I’ll walk you through why this problem occurs and how to repair it simply. If you don’t like reading, just scroll down to the video.

Why isn’t the zipper working?

Usually, a Two Slider Zipper will stop working because the one or both of the sliders has worn down or broken off. You can tell there’s a problem with the zipper sliders when the teeth won’t stay connected. If one of the sliders on a double zipper is broken or has popped off, then the zipper isn’t functional. What to do? Easy, you replace the broken zipper slider.

How can I fix my zipper?

You can always have a seamstress repair the broken zipper, unless you are a sewing nerd expect to pay a premium for fixing it. Boat cover zippers are an especially complicated zipper! A seamstress guru priced out a repair in the 2K range of cost! No mention the time it would take. Want an easy fix? You can use the FixnZip as the replacement zipper slider for one or both sliders on the Zipper With Two Sliders. It doesn’t require any tools or sewing, and you can fix your broken zipper in a matter of minutes.

I put together a short video to show you how. I use a jacket to demonstrate, but it’s the same process on any item with a broken double zipper.

If you can’t watch the video, find instructions here on our website. The insert that comes with the FixnZip also has instructions.

The only difference between a regular zipper and a double zip is that, if both zipper sliders are broken, you’ll put the top FixnZip on right-side up, and the bottom one on upside down. Then you feed the other row of teeth through both sliders, just like you did before it was broken. EASY!
