I have a 72 inch zipper> how do i match the length?

I have a canvas/plastic roll up door with zippers on both sides for the boats canvas bridge enclosure. Some how--shrinking or cover frame out of whack and I can't get the zipper on one side to zip as the zippers can't come together. I loosend one panel but even though the panels were close the zipper wouldn't zip????


Hi Arthur,
This problem is the reason I invented EX-Xtend boat zipper.
If I am reading you correctly, somehow you have a situation where the two halves of your zipper no longer reach to each other. The EZ-Xtend Zipper is a marine zipper that provides an instant inch by becoming the liaison between the two halves of the existing zipper. Please check out the zipper and see if it might work for you.
Thanks for the question.
