How FixnZip Works
Find Your Zipper Size
Before you order the FixnZip, you will need to determine your zipper size. FixnZip comes in three sizes (small, medium & large).
Begin by checking the back of your broken zipper slider* as most have the size number (between 1 and 10) embossed on the back of the slider. Once you have this number the sizing chart below will guide you to the FixnZip size you require.
Small: Zipper Sizes 1-4
- Examples: Pants, Skirts, Fine Garments, Cushions and Clutch Handbags.
Medium: Zipper Sizes 5-7
- Examples: Jackets, Sleeping Bags, Tents, Purses, Duffel Bags and Golf Bags.
Large: Zipper Sizes 8-10
- Examples: Wetsuits, Boat Covers, Canvas Tents, Heavy Duty Clothing and Jeep Windows.
1-4.5 mm | 0.04- 0.18 in = Small FixnZip
5-7.5 mm | 0.19-0.30 in = Medium FixnZip
8-10 mm | 0.31-0.40 in = Large FixnZip
How to Fix a Zipper with FixnZip
Fixing Open-End Zippers (Jackets, Sleeping Bags, etc.)
Open-End Zippers are most often found on jackets and sleeping bags.
These zippers can be completely detached from one another and are incredibly simple to fix using the FixnZip Replacement Zipper Slider.
Fixing Closed-End Zippers (Tents, Pants, Bags/Luggage, etc.)
Closed-End Zippers are most often found on tents, luggage/bags, or on your pants. These zippers remain connected at one end at all times, and can be particularly frustrating when broken.

Fixing Invisible/Watertight Zippers (Wetsuits, Athletic Wear, etc.)
Invisible Zippers can be either open-end or closed-end zippers.
