One of the zipper pulls on the duffle bag that I use to carry the majority of my sewing and crafting supplies with me when we’re traveling from contract to contract broke.
But the zipper itself was still fine.
So I stopped off at Joann Fabrics (with 50% off coupon) and picked up one of these zipper pull repair kits.
They are also available on Amazon: Dritz Zipper Repair Kit-Clothing (<affiliate link)
Dave had to cut out 4 or 5 of the teeth at the bottom of the zipper on both sides in order to install the new zipper pull.
Then the new zipper pull was installed on one side.
It took a bit of wiggling and adjusting then readjusting to get the zipper pull installed on the second half of the zipper.
Finally it was just a matter of installing one of the zipper stops that was included in the kit. He installed that above the area where the zipper teeth had been removed.
Now I have a fully functioning zipper once again.
