Zipper Tabs

#1
The zipper pull tabs on my pontoon storage units are breaking off from the zippers. Aside from using strap ties, anyone have ideas who/where one can obtain the tab pull devises?

Do you mean the pull tab itself (i.e. the part you grab onto) or the slider (the part that 'zips' the teeth together)?

Actually, it doesn't matter: You can get either at Seattle Fabrics online or at the Aurora Ave (Seattle) store:

Zipper sliders here:

For zipper pulls, I like to make them out of thin cording. You can find the hardware clips for that half-way down the page here:

Thanks Dan, this may do the trick.
