YKK zipper repair
I've got 2 sweet jackets that I can no longer where due to zipper failure. I don't see anything broken on either, zipper teeth engage at the top of zipping it up, but not at the bottom.
Anyone know of a company that does this kind of work or do I need to send em back to the manufacturer?

If you can't no longer wair it, then send it back to mfg for repaire, visit your local seamstress, or if you have access to a sowing machine, put in a new zipper. It's really easy, unless your talking waterproof breatheable. That's the only advise I've got.I always hate it when there is a bunch of hype for a storm. I also don't like how so many areas are predicting big totals. - alabamaskier

Use some pliers and squeeze both the top and bottom, and on both sides a bit tighter. This sometimes makes the teeth engage a bit better

take it to a place that does clothing repairs/altering. i've had several zippers on ski jackets repaired this way. it costs about $10 and its done in a couple days.
why would you send it back to the manufacturer, pay for shipping and have it sit in a warehouse for a month?

get something like this and just replace the zipper pull part, I've done the plier thing many times, and then eventually just replaced the zipper pull, and everything worked out great.
