Did you know:  Sometimes the full zipper does not need to be replaced.  If the teeth are in good working order, sometimes all that you will need is a new zipper pull, or possibly a repair to the zipper itself.  So please save your zipper pull if it falls off.

If there are any teeth missing, or the pin is pulled away, you will definitely need to replace the full zipper. 

NOTE:  Currently not accepting any zipper replacement/repair work.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

This Calvin Klein jacket came to me one year after it was purchased.  Unfortunately some jackets have very light weight zippers put in in order to keep manufacturing costs down, which creates the need for the consumer to decide whether to toss the jacket and purchase new, or to replace with a better zipper.  Although the cost to replace a zipper can be expensive, Andy chose to replace the zipper with a quality one, along with it having pulls on both ends, to make it a jacket his wife could continue to wear.

After the alteration was picked up, Andy brought it home to Nashua, where later I received an email from his wife sharing her delight on how nicely it worked.  Her favorite part was being able to unzip the jacket when driving in the car.
