I want to fix my boots so bad, but I don't know how. When I zip them up it starts to come open at the bottom so please tell me how to fix them. They are my favorite.

Similar to Molly's idea but if you can't sew it I would put a dab of glue on the inside & outside of the zipper.
How do you repair a zipper that comes apart while zipping up a sweatshirt?

Old dog is a genius. I pinched the slots on my plastic jacket zipper and it works like a charm. Thanks!
My jeans zipper is separating from the bottom up after it is zippered. Help! These are my favorite pair.

It is pretty inexpensive to get a new one put in if you can't fix it yourself. Most dry-cleaners offer this service.
I have a back pack that I really like, but the zipper has been burst by putting too many books in it. The zipper is plastic. Is there anything to do to repair it?

You can do this on metal zippers, too.
The zipper on my coat does zip, but it splits open. How can I fix this?

If the zipper is metal, sometimes you can hand sew over the zipper above the area where teeth are missing and that will keep the zipper pull from slipping out of place and popping open the zipper. Also, this depends on where teeth are missing, like in the middle, then you'll need to replace. (12/08/2009)
