    Zipper help

    Had a bit of slip - head end strap or knot - let me down, literally. Wound up with butt on the ground but feet in the air and messed up my zipper. Had the triple zip mod on my HH and it got misaligned during the fall. Any way to realign it besides prying the zipper 'jaw' open? It is only off by a few zipper teeth and really doesn't interfere with bug net use, but I'd like to fix it.

    No injury from the lowering, it was sudden but relatively slow. I did have to get help sine my feet were still way above my backside and I just don't bend so easy anymore

    Is it tooth or coil? Makes a difference.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Did we do the mod? I don't have access to our spread sheet at the moment. If so, you could send it back to us, and I will fix...no charge. You would be responsible for shipping costs. Tim is at the MAHHA this weekend. How close are you to there...you could give it to him, and just have to pay return shipping. ZQ
