Have you ever had a zipper that splits apart after zipping up? What about your tent zipper jamming in the middle of the night?

Often times, it is your zipper slider which is causing the problems as they get worn out quickly. Rather then replacing the entire zipper, replace the slider and see if it fixes the problem.

Here is a short video I found on how to fix it yourself. As somebody who has repaired zippers many times, it isn't very difficult at all and a way cheaper!
