Review of the FixnZip replacement zipper slider

FixnZip is a replacement zipper slider to fix different types and sizes of broken zippers, including zippers on jackets, sleeping bags, luggage, handbags, backpacks. It saves you from paying a seamstress. FixnZip is available in different colors and sizes to suit your needs and works on plastic, metal, and nylon zippers.

FixnZip looks like any regular zipper. The main difference is that it has a thumbscrew to tighten or loosen it. Another unique feature of FixnZip is that unlike regular zipper sliders, it has a place to pull on both sides. These features allow you to fix different types of zippers such as invisible zippers, closed-end and open-end zippers, and so on.

In order to use FixnZip, determine the size of your broken zipper slider. Most zipper sliders have a number indicating their size imprinted on their back or on the nose. If there is no size imprinted on the slider, the FixnZip website can guide you through the process of finding out its size. Once you have found the size of your broken zipper, you can order a FixnZip of that size.

Sometimes, fabric gets caught inside your zipper and jams the slider. This can be very frustrating. FixnZip sidesteps this problem because you can loosen the FixnZip zipper slider and pull the fabric out easily.

How it works

To use the FixnZip zipper slider to replace an open-end zipper, you simply loosen the thumbscrew, place one half of it over the zipper, turn it until it is completely tight, and then turn it back a quarter of a turn. If it is too loose, it won't pull the teeth together. If it is too tight, you won't be able to use the slider. Then you just insert the other side of the zipper into FixnZip and you're ready to go. You would follow the same process with a closed-end zipper, except the part where you tighten the loose FixnZip after you have inserted both sides of the broken zipper into it. Once you have attached the FixnZip, you can remove your old zipper by cutting it.

Conclusion

We used the FixnZip replacement zipper slider on closed-end, open-end, and invisible style zippers. It worked perfectly in every case. The FixnZip is simple, useful, and attractive. It blends in with the old zipper, whether it is on a jacket, backpack, or something else. Fixing a broken zipper with FixnZip is easy and can prevent a lot of frustration caused by jammed or broken zippers. HomeGear gives FixnZip our highest rating:4 Lights On: Excellent and Highly Recommended.
