Replacing sliders on #5 mylar zippers
I have always had great success in purchasing longer separating zippers to keep in stock and shortening them from the top. Often I have been able to simply install a new slider on a zipper to avoid the time and customer expense of zipper replacement. However, YKK has redesigned the sliders on their mylar (plastic tooth type) zipper in such a way that changing the slider is not possible for me.
Has anyone had experience with this and had success??? It is my understanding that the older style sliders are no longer sold for replacements.
