Whether it’s your jacket, your tent, or your travel bag, it’s not good when you can’t zip them up. That’s why Instructables user DamianTheGreat suggests you attach a small zip tie through the loop so you at least have something to grab onto. It might not be a bad idea to travel with a few in the bottom of your luggage or backpack, especially if you plan to go hiking or backpacking. Once you have time to find a nicer-looking solution, you can just remove the zip tie. If other zipper problems are getting you down, there are plenty of quick and easy ways to fix those too.
