Zipper rehab?

On my 2000 TJ drivers side upper door the zipper is not holding...is there any way that I could repair them? I assume I could (worse case) take them to the canvass store that made the bimini top for the boat, but finances are kinda tight. Thanks!

super glue or epoxy?

On my old car the guy used epoxy.. never came lose.. just when you glue it, make sure it bleeds through all the fabric.

go to your local upholstery shop to see if they can do anything about it at a reasonable price.

May be a new zipper pull so the teeth line up?
