    • To fix this:

    • Carefully unzip the zipper, separating the halves.

    • Reinsert the plastic piece into the zipper box, ensuring that it is in as far as possible.

    • Rezip the zipper.

    • If this method doesn't work, check for debris in the zipper box, or damage on the zipper slider.

    • If the zipper continues to come open from the bottom when zipping, and all the coil teeth are in good condition, you probably need to replace the zipper slider.

I would like to know how to repair a zipper when some of the coils have become unsewn from the zipper tape; i.e., the thread/stitches have worn away from use. Do I just sew over and under the coils? The original stitches were like crochet, with the thread pulled through loops, and they went over the top of the coil as well the bottom. I don't have a crochet hook that small and am wondering what is the best way to proceed. The stitches must not get in the way of the "zipping" action. Any ideas?

Thanks!

With a hand lens I can see the the plastic coils, which are otherwise in good condition, have worn flats at their edges where the taper on the slider pushes the coils together. Is there similar or worse wear on the metal slider? Seems unlikely. Do replacement sliders have a slightly narrower taper to allow for the worn plastic? If the replacement metal slider is the same size as the original I can't see why it would solve the problem of poor meshing of the coils when under slight load.
