BROKEN ZIPPER QUESTION

Recommended Posts

Zipper broke on my clam yukon yesterday, can a new zipper be put in? If so who and where? House is only 4 years old and in good shape. A new tent is like a $180.

Go with a wider tooth zipper, and a heavier zipper too.

The wider tooth will chew frost better, and tend not to bust as easily. The price difference at that pint is nominal.

TIP: Lube your zippers on your ice shacks with Chap Stick, it helps them work more easily in the cold, and resists frosting.

Your location is listed as SW MN, if you are near New London I can get you the name of the guy that does all our canopy and sail repair. My info is at home and will have to look it up for you, email is [email protected]

I broke mine a couple of years ago. Went to a local company that makes custom boat covers. They replace with a heavy two side zipper for $60. I also have the clam with the roll up front door. I agree on the heavy zipper, a camper or boat canvas company should be able to fix you up. Lot cheaper than new canvas.

For what ever reason your email did not make it through cyber-space to my inbox. I do not know if we can name names on the site but the local guy that we use (and is right by you) is

Wally's Upholstery 1/4 mile W of 9/71 junction. New London, MN Wally Abraham 320-354-2615

Hope I dont get into trouble for using his name.
