Today's public service announcement is regarding the care and feeding of zippers! Whether it is a Stickman Leather bag, or any other bag - or suitcase - you own and love if you take care of it and use it properly you can save your zippers! How do you save your zippers? By carrying the appropriate amount of stuff (and weight) in your bag!
Want to know the surest way to blow out a zipper? The surest way is to consistently over-stuff your bag.If you regularly over-stuff a bag, it places stress on the zipper and/or things get caught in the zipper.
To replace a zipper typically requires replacing the entire panel on which the zipper is sewn. And, in some bags, the way it is constructed prevents any type of repair.
A good rule of thumb is this: if you always have to force the zipper to close around all the stuff in your bag, it's time for a larger bag!
End of public service announcement. Thanks for listening!
