Is it possible to replace a broken zipper pull without replacing the entire zipper?
By Chrissie from Racine, WI
I used a heavy paperclip. Can you find one from an old jacket? You should be able to bend it with needle nose pliers.
If it is the pull itself that broke, and the "loop" it was hooked into is still there, you can use a paperclip, a loop of string/cord, a small piece of ball chain, or a lanyard type hook with a decorative pull on it.
However, if the loop on the zipper part is what broke, you won't be able to hook anything on as a pull. Then you will have trouble, and will probably have to replace the zipper.
