To install the slider when the teeth are already meshed push the teeth into the small end of the slider and pull the fabric apart as you push the slider done. Not hard.... just fussy.
I did a vid on installing a zipper but the quality is really bad. However the talk through has been helpful for some people.
Thanks Rev, I will have to find that one. I have watched most of them, and don't recall a zipper one.
Typically, do most people put two pulls on their zippers?
