When the slider on my riding jacket broke, I was very upset! The jacket was very expensive and in great condition, but totally useless without the zipper. I was able to fix my jacket in minutes. The instructions were easy to follow and very informative as to what can and cannot be fixed. I am so glad to have found this kit!
I found this "kit" online and figured I'd take a chance. The jacket is a Nightmare Before Christmas design that they don't sell anymore, so I couldn't buy a new one (or even a used one for that matter - it must be a rare print from 2002 because I've yet to find even a picture of one like it anywhere online).
The jacket has a metal "tooth" style zipper, and I was able to quickly find the right replacement in this kit. Repair was even easier than finding the proper zipper as all I had to do was locate the "stopper tab" at the top of the zipper (on the side that has the slider attached), and then use a screwdriver to pry it open. After that I just slipped the new zipper on, put the tab back in place and squeezed it closed with a pair of pliers. The first zip up took a bit of effort, but after that it's been zipping up easily just like new!
The replacement zipper is metal, and it seems just as sturdy as the original (if not more sturdy). The original zipper was silver (as are the "teeth" of the original zipper) and the replacement zipper from this kit (that fit/matched) is black. This doesn't bother me since the jacket is black, but I mention it in case it might bother other people.
I'm very happy with the results.
A few bucks to save $100+ on a new jacket is easily worth it.
The zipper slide (learned that from the kit) on my left sleeve broke in half. Using a new slide and the included end clips I was able to repair the zipper for less than the cost of a cup of coffee. That's important when a new moto jacket and armored pads would cost near $300. And if a non-tailor like me can do it in less than an hour then anyone can.
