Rukka Broken Zips
« on: December 01, 2018, 04:55:45 PM »
My 7 yr old Armax Rukka suit had a broken zip on the waterproof fly on the trousers ... quote £150 to fix because of the Goretex layering ...
Bought a 5mm FixnZip from Amazon .. 5 mins faffing about fixed for £7  :062:

Didn't know these were even a thing. Works just as well as the original??

I've a decent outdoor jacket with a failing zip, so might try; thanks for the tip off.

There are ones available which are like a paper-clip with a two-part plastic tab,

The benefit of the clip type, is that it operates the zip ‘stopper’ better.

Takes no space to include one in your kit on holiday.

Got a 10 pack off ebay years ago for about 3 quid and added them to all my zips, as I have fat fingers   :008: and with gloves on can now undo any zip without removing gloves. really useful little tags. I also took one off one day and used it to hold 2 wires together for a temporary fix on my mates Aprilia.
