Anyone work with a FixnZip?
« on: May 25, 2019, 05:32:58 AM »
Anybody have experience with the FixnZip? It seems this widget will repair a zipper that has unraveled, which is what happens to my board bags from time to time.



I have brought them to the tailor to fix, but he won't do the repair without the original zipper. I was able to get that original once, but Pau Hana doesn't supply the zippers for their older model bags. These

I ordered one to try it out. It's only 11 bucks.

That is a neat little gadget. I've saved the video (and website) to my Favorites for future reference.

That's for the tip.  :)

Waiting...  A ton of reviews on Amazon, mostly decent.  I've got a frozen zipper on a board bag.

Have you tried WD-40 on that frozen zipper?

I have used this as a zipper fix. It does work. Not perfect but does get a blown zipper functional. The better fix is to replace the zipper.
