How to fix a zipper with Sugru

If a zip-pull falls out and gets lost, that can ruin a whole jacket. We can't have that!

With just a paperclip, and a small piece of Sugru, you can create a new one that's even better than the original in some cases.

Sugru Mouldable Glue is perfect for this because it will make the paperclip much stronger, and because it's rubbery and waterproof it feels really nice to use too!

It's machine washable, and temperature resistant in high and low temperatures, so this is a perfect fix whether it's a jacket, a favourite pair of boots, or even a zip on a backpack, tent or wetsuit. It will last for years to come.

Even if your zip pull isn't broken, you might like to use a piece of Sugru to make it bigger and easier to use with gloves on, for example for ski wear.

Leave the Sugru for 12-24 hours to set and you're good to go!
