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 curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved.
