How To Maintain Shoe Zipper
- In normal use, pay attention to whether the zipper has “broken belly”, “out of teeth”, crookedness, etc., and these problems should be repaired in time, and no more deadlifts. If the zipper is loose or out of teeth, you can tap a small hammer on the zipper head a few times to make the upper and lower chain teeth bite tighter, so that the teeth will no longer be out of teeth.
- Aluminum alloy zippers are more susceptible to corrosion, so they should be kept dry and not damp to prevent the aluminum teeth from forming white oxides, which will erode the zippers over time and affect the use. At the same time, be careful not to react with alkaline and Contact with acidic substances. All kinds of bags, pockets or wallets with zippers should not be overfilled, otherwise the zippers will easily cause “broken belly”, “out of teeth”, crookedness and soft cloth.
- When pulling the zipper, you should first align the teeth on both sides, then pinch the zipper head and gently pull it forward along the track, do not pull hard, so as not to cause “teeth crooked”, “broken belly” and “out of teeth” . If the zipper is astringent and the pulling is not flexible, you can wipe it with a cloth first and then apply a layer of white wax on the “teeth”.
