ZlideOn – awesome tool fixes that broken zip in 3 seconds


ZlideOn is an awesome new tool for fixing broken zippers. Just slide the new fastener over the old zip teeth and bingo, done. Amazing technology, deserving of a Nobel. Around $9.00. [Via]


 ZlideOn, fixes broken zip fasteners within 3 seconds without replacing the entire zipper! Mounting is made onto the existing chain, replacing the broken slider. Construction, mounting and function are patented. ZlideOn is available for all models of zip fasteners in different colors and sizes. With an easy grip you replace a broken slider on your clothes, work wear, military wear, bags, suitcases, boat-tops, tents, furniture-covers and lots more.

  • Alternately, you can go to your friendly dry cleaner, who, for at least the last 30 years, has a box of these in different sizes from which he'll choose the one that fits and works properly with your zipper, for a lot less $$

  • Jeez Michael, they're not THAT expensive.. Sheesh!
