Side window zipper broke

The male end of the zipper attached to the side window broke off. The thread were just weathered and worn. Any ideas on fixing this? Thanks

I'd suggest a local boat canvas maker or upholstery shop. You're going to want some sewing done in addition to a new zipper.

x2 on the above statement, I got mine done last year at a canvas shop, since they had to stitch in a new zipper & teeth for the window.

Thanks, I meant the small metal piece at the beginning just broke off, not the whole zipper.
