When your zipper does work, it can be repaired in two different ways. If there are no missing or damaged parts on the zipper, often a new pull will solve the problem. This is the quickest and most economical repair. If the ends of the zipper or teeth are damaged, missing or bent, a new zipper is necessary to correct the problem.
A great time to get repairs done is while the garment is in for cleaning. Both services can be done in the same amount of time necessary to replace a zipper.
