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?

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 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.
