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.

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

Good luck dude! smile

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
