Hi,


I'm off to Egypt tomorrow and have a problem in that my right dive boot unzips itself during a dive. I wondered if anyone out there knows of a way to stop this from happening as it's a pain to keep zipping it up. I don't want to bin them as they are practically new - purchased from one of the stalls at LIDS a few years back. Look forward to your thoughts.

Regards

Sounds like the little teeth on the back of the zipper tag have come off. they normally latch into the zip itself when you lay it flat after zipping up.

Only thing you can do really is to take some long ZIP TIES with you, and put a zip tie round the top of the boot, UNDER the zipper tag, but only tight enough to stop the zip coming undone, dont cinch it up too much!!

Good luck and enjoy the hols!

Hi,

thanks for the reply. It's a darn nuisance considering the boots are near new. When I get back I may see how much it costs to have a new zip inserted.
