Quick Question: Zipper Fix
I have a sleeper here (it's William's, not mine) with a zipper that has come un...threaded(?) on one side. That is, the zipper pull is sliding up and down freely on one of two zipper...ladders, but without being connected to the other ladder. The zipper doesn't appear to be broken (no zipper teeth missing, no splits in the ladder), just disconnected. Can this be saved, or is it toast? I mean, I'm not going to replace the zipper; I'm wondering if it can be rethreaded so that both ladders are in the pull, and if so, how, or if I should toss it out. I tried to cram the disconnected ladder into the pull, but it looks like the ladder is too thick to go in like that. It's a brand-new sleeper, and I don't know if the zipper was like this when we bought it or if William unthreaded it the first time he was putting it on.
