rear window zipper

Hey guys. I went to put my top up today because we are going to get storms here in VA for the next few days. When i went to zip my rear window up the zipper did not catch and mesh the top and window together! after playing with it for a couple minutes i got it to start zipping but there are places along the zipper where the two sets of teeth are not meshed. Will getting a new set of zippers fix it? I was looking at this:

Jeep Zipper Sliders

Its the stock top from 2002 so I'm wondering if the pulls are maybe bad? Thanks for your help.

Thanks, I'll try this tomorrow. I tried to do a search but I couldn't get anything relevant. Probably because I didn't know exactly what to search.
