Here are the steps on how to fix a broken zipper if the slider comes off the track of teeth
If one or both sides of the slider happen to come off the teeth, the zipper doesn’t require to be mandatorily dropped, you can just reattach it. You have to begin with the zip which is at the lower end of the zipper. If you can’t tell which is the right side, find the end with a square tab of fabric after the zip finishes.
Then, feed the teeth from that end into the slider. If you need extra leverage to push the teeth into place, use a flathead screwdriver. Once the teeth are on both sides of the slider, use the puller to move it up and down the track to lock it in place.
Step 2: Use tweezers
Double-check if there is anything grabbed between the zip, remove the material or particle before you try to put the zip back in place. If you are not able to, you can consider using a pair of tweezers which you can use to move upwards and downwards on the zipper to get rid of the material that is stuck.
Step 3: Use a pencil or washing up liquid
You can take the help of a pencil if the zip doesn’t happen to move, you can rub the lid of the pencil on the teeth of the zipper and a washing liquid can be a good lubricant.
Vaseline can be a good resort if the above-mentioned resorts fail. Grab a cotton bud and rub vaseline on it. Now rub this bud over the teeth. Due to the sticky nature of Vaseline, the obstacle particles stuck on the teeth wilI come off. And like washing liquid this will also not add to any stains on your favorite zipper.
