FAQs

Zippers fail for a variety of reasons. If the teeth separate after being ripped up, then the zipper slider is probably worn out and needs to be replaced. If the zipper is pulled on too hard, it can come off track and no longer align the teeth properly. Sometimes the slider comes off all together. In each of these scarios, the FixnZip replacement slider will take care of the problem. 

FixnZip is available in Small, Medium and Large sizes. Medium is the commonly purchased size FixnZip slider, though zipper sizes do vary. For more information in identifying your zipper size, visit our instructions page here.

Most of the time, the FixnZip will work if teeth are missing on a plastic or metal zipper. While the FixnZip does not replace the missing zipper teeth, it does realign the surrounding teeth, making the zipper functional again. 

If the zipper is a nylon coil zipper and the coils have come under, the FixnZip most likely will not function properly.
