Common Zipper Issues
One common problem with a zipper is the pin not being correctly inserted into the retainer before pulling up on the zipper. When this happens you need to hold one side of the zipper tight and pull the zipper back down. Have you ever had a zipper peel open from the bottom? This usually happens when the pin, once again, isn't inserted into the retainer. This can be tricky to reverse. You may try reinserting the pin into the retainer and then gently pull down on the tab. A jammed zipper is probably the most common issue. Once again make sure the pin is correctly inserted into the retainer and pull the tab gently. If it still doesn't move, then check the zipper for kinks, bent teeth, or missing teeth. Sometimes zippers need to be replaced. At Tara's Stitches, we will replace the zipper with a quality zipper that will extend the life of your jacket, luggage, camping gear, or hot tub cover.
