Fixing a stuck zipper can be a pain! A stuck zipper can bee caused by:

  • a dry, dirty, corroded, zipper (this one is the most common),
  • fabric getting caught
  • teeth canted or missing

When you have a zipper with missing teeth that is a bigger problem, that occurs when the stuck zipper is pulled on too hard!  Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax prevents stuck zippers! Lubricate your zippers with Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax! Use BKZW on all your boots, clothes, coats, jackets, luggage, as well as, automobile, boat ,tent and camper canvas, zippers!  BKZW keeps them running smooth without a goopy oily mess, or chemicals that can harm the fabric! However, if  the stuck zipper is already damaged… depending on its location, 1-2″ from the bottom or 1″ from the top on jackets and coats only… it can bee repaired, otherwise we suggest replacing the zipper and use Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax seasonally to prevent stuck zippers from occuring!

Fabric that gets stuck in the zipper! SLOW DOWN…. treat the zipper with Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax and “slowly zip from now on! To get the zipper unstuck, put some BKZW at the stuck zipper, and wiggle the stuck zipper slowly,pulling gently.. keep at it… it will come undone… then just bee gentle and go slow with that zipper!

Dry or Dirty Zippers  basically it all starts here! If your zippers are clean and lubricated, they will be “Smooth To Move!”  So to prevent stuck zippers  keep your zippers clean and lubricated with 100% natural, Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax!

This is a great story! We were at the Newport International Boat Show last September 2011 and a woman came up to us holding her favorite rain coat  with a stuck zipper! She said, ” If you can fix this it will be a miracle! This is my favorite jacket and I haven’t been able to use it since last year!” When I looked at the stuck zipper, it was a salty dry crusty white mess! This zipper was STUCK… YUK!  The zipper was stuck bee-cause of alll the salt water it had taken on over the years, and she never lubricated her zippers or rinsed them off! She asked if we could help her, I said “Yup we can fix that” I waxed the stuck zipper with Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax, put some BKZW inside the stuck zipper, took a pair of pliers, grabbed on to the pull tab of the stuck zipper and wiggled, tugged, jostled, cajoled, and wiggled some more… with in about 3-4 minutes the stuck zipper was freed ! That stuck zipper had been that way for OVER 1 YEAR  but Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax saved the day!  Another woman was watching and listening, she ran back to her boat, got her rain slicker that had a stuck zipper, and we got that stuck zipper, un-stuck too!

YUP Bee’s Knees Zipper Wax really worked on 2 stuck zippers that were stuck for over 1 year  bee-cause of salty corrosion!
