You will need
  • - pliers;
  • - awl;
  • - new slider for zipper;
  • - lace;
  • - wire;
  • - new lightning.
Problems with the lightning can be of different types. The most common problem is its variance. While the lightning may not be visible damage. Then the problem is in the slider. Take the pliers and an awl (instead it can use a nail scissors). Bend the metal in a restrictive brace at the base of the zipper and remove the slider. Gently squeeze the rails with pliers. If you make it too hard to extend the gap without damage the parts you are unlikely. Return the slider into place. Try as now zips. If everything is in order, put the bracket in place and clamp it. If the design of things allows, grip the slider without removing it from lightning.
If the slider is cracked, the same way remove it. Note the number stamped on its rear surface. Buy in the clothing store new runner, according to the existing number and insert it into the zip. If during these manipulations, you damaged the bracket or the base of the zipper began to crumble by itself, will proceed as follows. Pour into this place of clear super glue. When it hardens, it becomes a constraint for the thumb, and from the fabric base of zipper stop to climb the thread.
If the runner came off the tongue, gently pass a new one. If you do not have a ready tongue, replace it with a piece of wire or make a loop of durable cord.
If the zipper teeth fell out, better to give the thing a professional repair. Of course, to insert the cloves can be at home, but it is a very complex and painstaking work. Repair will cost you cheap enough, but you will save much time. Even easier in this situation, just sew a new zipper. For this you first need to remove the old lock. Carefully cut it off without damaging the fabric. Buy a new zipper the right color and size. Fold the edge of the fabric and sew the lock manually or pristrochite it on the sewing machine.
