who will repair zipper on canvas top/

by bobby

the right side of the enclosure that is above windshield will no longer zipper shut.

Hi Bobby,
Either there is two much stress on the zipper, the slider is defective or the zipper teeth are too old and failing.

If the teeth are chalky and crumbly, replace the zipper at a canvas shop. You could also try doing this yourself. See marine zipper page for more help.

If there is two much stress, an ez-xtend boat zipper may help, provided the teeth are still strong enough. See the EZ-Xtend zippers page.

If the slider is plastic, in may help to switch to a metal slider, provided the teeth are still sound. The plastic sliders get weak as they age.
See marine zipper page for help with sliders.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks, Tammy
