Broken zipper ruin your favorite clothing? Don’t throw it away just yet! The most common issue with zippers is a broken or missing insertion pin, the part of the zipper that goes inside the other. While there are zipper-repair kits sold at Walmart, they commonly do not last due to the amount of stress the insertion pin receives in daily use. The best way to replace the pin is to sew in a new one, including the fabric and plastic backing surrounding it. No kit required— just some scissors, needle, and thread!
