Fix a broken zipper!

Ugh! Just yesterday I opened up my dryer and found not one, but two zippers in the dryer. Off Carter's hoodie and jacket. Both of which are new! 

With just a couple tools I was able to get them back on! Yay!
Want to learn how? 

I used two different pliers, one is the normal needle nose kind. The other is flat. Plus these are mini, like jewelery making size.

Using the flat pair, I pushed it into the bottom of the zipper.

Open the zipper with the pliers, but only open it enough to get your zipper in. The more you open and close it the weaker it may become and snap (trust me.)

Slide onto zipper on jacket.

Pinch closed. You may want to pinch it, try to zip. If it doesn't zip, pinch some more. This part is all about trial and error.

Once you get it to work your all set!  
Take your time and be gentle. Or else the zipper will snap.  

Now, I'm off to work on the jacket!
