Zipper Daily Maintenance

The zipper is composed of rows of chain teeth arranged in an orderly manner. The pull ring moves up and down to achieve the purpose of merging and separating. It is widely used in life. It often appears in clothing, leather bags, tents and other life objects that are closely related to life. When it is not easy to pull, it often makes people very troubled and affects the normal use of items. So what are some good techniques to solve this problem and make the zipper achieve long-term lubrication effect?

  1. Pull the tail part of the zipper, straighten it, and then pull it up from the bottom to see if it is smooth. If it is not smooth, you can find a wax and apply it on the surface of the zipper. This wax can be obtained from the outer coating of some medicines. Of course, candles can also be used. Rub it back and forth on the zipper twice.
  2. When the zipper is not easy to pull, you can pull the end of the zipper, straighten the zipper, and then repeatedly pull from bottom to top to check whether it is smooth, and what is the reason for it. In many cases, it is because there are other things in the zipper card, which cause the smoothness. You only need to remove some obstacles to return to normal.
  3. It is also possible that the zipper is not straight due to the bag type itself. For example, frog pockets and other processes are prone to this situation. Try to use some good quality zippers, such as double zipper or good quality, so as not to affect the quality of bulk goods and reduce the degree of bad pull.
  4. The easiest way is to apply a layer of wax to the surface of the zipper, and use the lubricating effect of the wax to achieve a smooth effect. You can use a candle to wipe the surface of the zipper back and forth, first try to pull it a few times, and then repeat it from bottom to top several times to achieve the goal of smoothness. In addition to wax, you can also use the lubricating oil of the sewing machine. After dropping a few drops on the position of the pull ring, repeatedly pull it several times to achieve smoothness.
  5. To avoid similar situations, you can sew a Fengji clasp at the top of the zipper, so that the clasp hooks on the square hole at the top to achieve the goal of smooth zipper.
