Zipper Repair

9 posts in this topic

I have a soft-sided travel kennel for our dog. This weekend, he decided to wreck a zipper on it. I'm hoping I can get the zipper repaired for less than a new kennel will cost.

Any ideas where to get this fixed in the western side of the Cities? I'm sure anyone who makes/repairs fish houses could do it, but I don't know of anyone.

Not exactly on the west side, but Thrifty Outfitters has repaired numerous zippers for me over the years. They are on the West Bank above Midwest Mountaineering.

If you are up in the Chisago Area, I would bet Lakes Area Canvas can fix it. Located on Hwy 8 just before entering Chisago City downtown area on your left. They are good people to work with IMO.

If you are in the Ramsey or Rogers area, Canvas Craft Inc. is pretty reasonable on zipper repair. It was around the $50 mark for the very large zipper on my shack I replaced last year (we are talking a large new style grip zipper that is about 10' long). They did a very nice job.

!!!!!!!!!Click here for Canvas Crafts!!!!!!!!!!

That or any sewing shop around your area I am sure would do it!

Good luck dude! smile

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
