Have you ever had a jacket or a bag that was ruined because the zipper broke? Once the zipper goes, entire items can be rendered completely useless. The humble zipper really is an amazing invention when you think about it, and its mechanics have pretty much stayed the same after all this time. It’s no wonder why zippers are used on so many things. So what happens when they break? I have a beautiful leather jacket that I absolutely love, but one day the zipper broke… I don’t know how it happened but it just stopped working. I tried to fix it myself but I really had no idea what I was doing, so I eventually went to a repair shop and had it fixed by a professional. It was a huge hassle and it cost more than I’d like to admit, but I had my favourite jacket back! But it turns out that I didn’t need to go through all of that trouble.
