Have you tried contacting Pelagic? I would think that they would replace it, depending how old that bag is. Heard their customer service is pretty good...Both zipper pulls broke on my pelagic kill bag. Anyone know a place in San Diego who can do this fix? Anyone has a zipper replaced?
what I Did when I had A problem with A Zipper on my tackle Bag,Both zipper pulls broke on my pelagic kill bag. Anyone know a place in San Diego who can do this fix? Anyone has a zipper replaced?
Thanks for the intel-I heard about a shoe repair place, big Bob's in Clairemont that may be able to do it.Did the same as the guy above putting cord in the zipper pulls first. Then when that fix failed, went to an upholstery shop I always used for marine and auto repairs, in Temecula. Most shops can probably put a new zipper on. Paid $40 about 4 yrs ago
It also works for tackle bags. I use light oil or wax. I've read about some guys blaming the manufacturer of the bag for using "cheap" zippers, and come to find out that they had never cleaned their tackle bag. Salt can do a lot of damage.I worry about the same. I've learned to treat my zipper with petroleum jelly like he'll two or three times a year.
