          Comments about ZRK-Zipper Rescue Kit Zipper Rescue Kit:

          unhappy that not all the parts listed on the "parts enclosed" sheet were in the package.. it was as if someone had ordered it, took what they needed, returned it and then it got shipped back out to me.. not sure what all happened that parts were missing.. BUT the part I needed was, indeed, there, otherwise I would have just returned it for another one. LESSON: count the parts upon receipt of product!!

              This is a simple kit with good instructions. Fixing my hiking coat zipprt was
              done in 2 minutes. Everyone should have one of these kits on hand.
              The vendor also has a "clothing kit" as well as an "outdoor kit".

                                                The company that makes the kit ZRK Enterprises can add the 5VST to the kit.

                                                Unfortunately this rescue kit would not have the slider for a YKK 5VST zipper. I would contact the manufacturer of the jacket.

                                                The older down Campmor bags you refer to used a Ykk # 8 zipper.

                                              I have a sleeping bag that is missing the slider. The zipper is a 5mm YYK coil, but the bag is over 20 years old, and according to the manufacturer (YKK) their product line has changed, and their currently manufactured sliders will not work with this older zipper. Will your repair kit work with the older zipper?

                                                Unfortunately the 5mm coil in the kit will fit current YKK products not 20 year old product. You may need to have the zipper replaced with a current 5mm coil from YKK.

                                              How do I tell what the size of the slider is on the YKK zipper on my tent door? The slider is a double pull slider. On the front of the slider there is what appears to be an "8" or "B" and a "C" which is possibly a "0".

                                                It is an 8 and the C refers to coil.

                                                If you are referring to a clothing fly, this is not the appropriate kit. A kit for clothing zippers would be better.

                                              The zipper I need to repair is missing the long piece on the end, that when the zipper is open, is inserted into the slider to begin the closing process. Can this kit help me?

                                                If the pin is missing the zipper repair kit will not help. You need a new zipper sewn in.

                                              will this fix the zipper on the eureka 4L timberline tent going from the bottom right to the apex of the tent door? How does it work given the existing slider just goes up and down without engaging.... will the existing slider stay on "below or above" the new slider?

                                                This will provide you with new slider and instructions on how to attach it to the existing zipper.

                                                This kit has 4 differrent size sliders so it should work with a variety of zippers. You need to match the size to the existing slider on your bag.
