Default New zippers

I know the zippers are an issue. Anyone get the zippers fixed or replaced and how much did you pay? I just got a crazy number today to redo the zipper on the shovel pouch.

That's what I was planning to do. I did go somewhere yesterday and they were going to charge me at least $180.00 to replace the zipper. Seemed HiGH to me, maybe he was. I'll try a couple others.

Default Zips

I had mine replaced last year by local shop that does boat tops. They used heavy plastic zippers and they work great.

I found some info. I was having a struggle finding anyone that could fix it or replace it under $180.00. I found a shoe repair guy that will either repair the POS zipper for about $30 or replace the zipper for about $60. Apparently the shoe repair shops have the appropriate machine to sew on the shovel pouch part. Also, I was told that if you wanted to eliminate the zipper issue and fix at home, strips of Velcro could be lined around the location of the zippers and then stitched. Not preferred but could work.

Default I fixed my broken zipper with snaps

Snap kit cost about $15 and took maybe 1 hour
