Find out the problem
Your beloved Sweet jacket, which has protected you well over the years has now begun to wear out. We have a great home repair solution for you!
Most likely the slider has worn out and only needs to be replaced. Firstly, if your zipper has broken you need to check some of the following:
- How do the zipper teeth look, are they worn/broken or in good condition?
- How does the slider look?
- What number has the slider on the back, for example, 5Vst
If the zipper teeth are in good condition, then you will only have to replace the slider. So send us a request with which slider you need. Click here to submit a request
We have sent you a new slider and top stopper for the repair of your zipper.

Make sure you look at the video a few times to fully understand the repair (we do not accept responsibility for mistakes during the repair)
Do not clip off the bottom stopper, as you have only received a top stopper. Cut off the top stopper and remove the old slider. Place the new slider on the same side as the old slider came out of and test the slider on the zipper, zipping up both together.
Now you can add the new top stopper to the zippers and clamp it gently together with the pliers.
What do you need?
A cutting tool and pliers
Problems after the repair?
After completing the repair, if you have discovered that the repair has not worked then you will need to replace the whole zipper on the jacket.
