Don’t let a worn out zipper ruin your well loved gear. These replacement sliders will fit the #3 zipper tape used on all Zpacks tents, sleeping bags, and accessories. They have a pull tab on both sides, so the zipper can be accessed from the inside or outside of your gear.

If your zippers are not sealing correctly the usual culprit is the metal on the sides of the sliders has worn down. The metal naturally wears down over time, especially in dusty trail conditions. Luckily they are easy to replace on trail:

  1. Cut the ends of the zipper tape so the old sliders can slide off.

  2. Push on the new sliders with your fingertip. The sliders have grooves in the sides which must match the orientation of the zipper tape. The bumpy side of the zipper tape needs to fit in the grooves on the sliders. If the zipper has two sliders (like a tent door), make sure they zip together evenly at the center.

  3. Tape the ends of the zipper tape so the sliders can't slide off. Our Dyneema Composite Fabric repair tape works well.

These are great

These work great. Have used to replace zippers on my z pack tent and on an REI tent. These are really hard to find, especially with double tabs, so I applaud z-pack big time for carrying. Anything that makes it possible to repair our gear, rather than replace, is huge.

replacement parts.

Parts were delivered quickly, overall impressed with Zpacks products. Just not sure why the zipper corroded in the first place. Got some zipper conditioner, hopefully good to go now. Keep up the great work!

Duplex zippers now good as new

I was able to self-repair the zippers on my Duplex which had started to fail on 1 of 4 sliders after 4years of use. Extending the life of my gear even further!
