So, you just squeezed the zipper with pliers a bit? Pretty useful vid. If you hadn't said you'd already had success I'd never believe it lol

Seems to be a common problem.

Also, a little wax on a zipper is good for lubrication.

Thanks for posting.

So, the zipper on my sleeping bag separated, and wouldn't zip up anymore. I looked around the interwebs for a bit, and I found a solution.

SPOILER ALERT: It fucking works. I've already tried the method in the video, and now my sleeping bag zips up perfectly again.

Thank you mighty Viking Adventurer for saving the zipper on my favorite jacket. It would be very cold without my windbreaker.

I was thinking the same thing when I first saw the video!

Thank YOU for the additional protip!

...one of the hundreds of reasons to always carry a decent multi tool, I swear they are worth their weight in gold.
Shit, my Leatherman wave is worth *MY* weight in gold!

Same for my sleeping bag! I was super pissed off at first, because it's a $100+ bag, and for something as simple as a fuckin' ZIPPER, I was starting to think I might have to find a new one.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
