Here is a tutorial to learn how to install a metal zipper end. A metal end is easy to install and gives a professional finish to zippers.

It will perfectly finish the look of your Mambo bag 🙂

Installing a metal zipper end

Supplies needed :

  • one zipper 😉
  • one metal zipper end
  • all-purpose strong glue (fabric, metal, …)
  • a screwdriver with a small head (the screws are tiny)

I strongly advise you to install the metal zipper end over a towel or over a surface where the screws will not roll.

1- Fill the metal end with strong all-purpose glue (fabric, metal,…) a little less than halfway.

2- On the closed end of the zipper, fold the sides of the tape to the wrong side to form a triangle and push the zipper tape into the metal end.

3- Take a deep breath and screw the screws. Before screwing you can add a drop of blocking glue on the screw shank.
If a little bit of glue overflows, wipe gently with a cloth to remove it.

Screw!

Allow the glue to dry for a few minutes before handling the zipper.
