the melted tooth thing? what you do is snip off one or two teeth from some scrap zipper tape. then push them into the teeth at the end of the good zipper then take your hotknife and melt the sides welding the teeth inplace. I can take a pic tomorow   if you like?

Sorry, I was too vague.  I meant the first one that YOU do!
"I cut a strip of matching 3/4" binding and wrap the end I learned this from some OEM cover i installed for a dealor years ago i stuck with it."

almost all the guys here bind the zipper end, normally
using the material the top is made from

i do this occasionally, theres no way that slider is coming off  ;D


Thanks for the pics fragged. I wasnt sure what you meant. I learn more on this forum than I can retain. I havent done zippers yet but when I do Ill try to at least remember that there is something about it here.
