Fix n Zip – Saving Clothing One Article At A Time

Have you ever had a favorite jacket and then the zipper breaks?  It is far too costly to replace the zipper or pay someone to replace the zipper.  I swear in the last week my family has broken at least three zippers – 2 coats and a hoodie.  Then I remember a product I had heard about – Fix n Zip!

Fix n Zip is definitely the solution.  Do you know how many articles of clothing I have had to throw out because the zipper was broken and the cost to repair was just not practical.  Not much frustrates me more than that.  Especially when the article of clothing is costly to replace.  Ugh…Of course since you all know me! I wouldn’t necessarily throw it out – I would cut it up and re-sew it into something else – but the original article of clothing is what we wanted.


Or how about those backpacks who’s zipper breaks one month after the school year starts.  Of course the original zippers almost never last a full school year while the backpack is perfectly capable of holding up for a school year.  Or the sleeping bag that my daughter uses just once for a trip to Maine and then can never use it again.

Along comes Fix n Zip.  This incredible product does not require sewing, tools or anything but basically allows you to bypass the broken zipper and still keep your clothing or other items fully functional.

The Fix n Zip looks like a zipper but with a knob on it.  The knob allows you to simply attach the new zipper pull right onto the existing zipper teeth.  Simply unscrew it, fit one side of your zipper into the loosened opening, retighten, then feed the other sipper side through and pull.  That may not make any sense but here is a video to illustrate it for you.

How to use photo:

STEP 1 The screw on the FixnZip™ slider should be towards the outside of the item. STEP 2 Loosen the screw on slider. STEP 3 Slip the slider over one row of zipper teeth.
STEP 4 Place the slider close to the zipper box. Tighten the screw all the way down, then loosen 1/8 turn. STEP 5 Slider should now be  secured to one row of teeth, like you would find on an unzipped jacket. STEP 6 Insert zipper pin into the slider, and zip up the jacket.

    I just had to buy a new coat because my zipper broke on my favorite one. I didn’t toss it yet though and may just get this and keep my new coat as a backup.
