  • soft top zipper

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix a zipper on a soft top window. the zipper is off track and it zips up and un zips at the same time. I've had the worst luck with this new soft top.

    I've heard that you can squeeze the zipper head closed slightly to make it work. Havent tried it myself though.

        personally if it were under warrenty, i would send it back, if not go to an sewing shop and ask them to look at it,,,,


        but once u get it fixed get urself some zipper wax,,,, they sell this for wetsuits, to keep the zippers lubricated in salt water,,,,,and yes it works

          as mentioned, a pair of pliers can fix this sometimes by squeezing the parts together. a shoe repair shop can sew in new zippers to.

              Squeeze the head slightly.Then zip it with a pair of pliers while holding the front of the head down and the back up.You can always pay an upholstery shop to sew metal zippers in place of the plastic ones.

                It was built on a Friday at 4:30 by a drunk illiterate trainee with instructions written in spainish.
