    How do you stop your zipper from coming down ?

    I pull it up and push down on the tab, and isn't that supposed to lock it in place ? I fasten the top with a rubber band looped thru the button hole and looped around the snap- like button. Then, the zipper won't lock into place and keeps coming down. So, I put a safety pin in there and it kinda blocks the zipper's downward passage. Is there a trick to this ?

    bullet, I can't take the zipper out b/c I'm not a seamstress, but my mother was.

    It's risky securing a zipper if you have to go when you have to go.


    I haven't figured it out, either,  so wear an extra long top with THOSE pants.

    Wee bit of blu tac placed just under zip does the trick.

    What's Blu tac and who sells it, Roy?

    Might be called something different in the States, most office suppliers & hardware stores have it........................

    I'll look for something like that, Romeos. I don't have to thank you , b/c PKB already did :-)

    Safety pin strategically placed......

    She tried the safety pin. Maybe where is strategic?

    not a bad idea, daren. Thank you everyone, and Daren > > > don't stay away so long again, next time.

    I either get rid of that piece of clothing or if I absolutely loved the item, I would take it to a seamstress (or even the dry cleaner) and get it fixed. Personally, I can't imagine all the fuss over a zipper that won't stay closed.
