Broken Zipper
 
Broke the zipper pull on my rear window now I can't put it in. Anyone know a place in northern NJ that sells replacements? I'm in Lyndhurst. Thanks for the help in advance.

Try a boat shop. I had mine repaired in the past by a boat upholstery repair shop near the beach.

Going to try to have the zipper replaced at a shop. For the time being I ordered one of those repair kits. Figures I break it and today it's raining. Do you remember what it cost you and which shop did it?

i broke mine just today trying to fix it.... how much did the shop charge you to put a new one on?

just ordered thanks :thumb: is there a specific way to put them on? or do they just slid on like normal?
thanks again

I had one that just slide on. And another I had to use a dremmel to grind a little (button) off so I could get the slider to come off. I just sewed a small stopper on it to keep slider on, pretty easy.

Sorry haven't signed on in a bit, been super busy. I wound up ordering new sliders from jeepit.com They arrived and took me about 15 minutes to install. After installing them my zipper works like new. Now there's no need to find a whole replacement zipper although I found the full zippers for the jeep here in case someone needs them.
