The only effective solution at this point is to repair it yourself, and maybe come up with a feature. Let's take a look at the solutions to common problems of zipper heads.

First of all, let's take a look at the basic composition of the zipper head. It is composed of several important parts such as the pull tab, the pull tab lock, the zipper body and the zipper head lock.

Repair method for damaged pull tab

When the pull tab is accidentally damaged, the best solution is to find an unused old zipper, remove its pull tab, and install it on the new zipper. In fact, the most critical part at this time is the disassembly and assembly method of the pull tab. Use a screwdriver or other pointed tool to pry off the pull tab lock handle of the old zipper, and then remove the pull tab lock. The same is true when installing the pull tab. After the pull tab is installed, snap the pull tab lock back to the zipper body in place.

Of course, in an emergency, a thin wire can be directly passed through the small hole between the pull-tab lock and the zipper body, and the two ends of the wire are wrapped together, which can also be urgent.

The solution to the damage of the pull-tab lock

When the pull-tab lock is lost or damaged inadvertently, for the zipper without the zipper head lock, the pull-tab can be thrown away and used directly. For a zipper with a zipper head lock, the zipper head lock needs to be removed before it can be used again.

The solution for the inability of the zipper head to lock the two zippers

Use pliers to slightly squeeze the upper and lower surfaces of the basket body to make the gap smaller, so that the chain will be more effective. If the effect of this method is not obvious, the front of the zipper body is tightened, and the effect will be better.

When the zipper body is broken or loose, it is recommended to replace the zipper with a new one. Or go to a specialized zipper repair shop for repairs.
