Default Anyone tried "instant zipper?

Just saw a pop-up ad and video for a broken zipper fixer called Instant Zipper, sold at https://taillow.com/products/instant...qYzaF5p9YNBotU

It sure looks good, but I am always skeptical. Anyone tried it? Does it really work?

Thank you in advance for any info.

It look like it would be a life long dream come true for broken zippers if it really works. I'm old school, if it looks to good to be true then it is to good to be true. I will wait on this one and save my money for now.

This makes sense to me, if it works. I've replaced a lot of zippers that just needed a new pull. If the teeth are damaged, that's another story. But I think this sort of thing is already available. Probably through Wauwak or maybe Home Sew. They sell new pulls, but I don't know how you get them on.

It looks like it just works if all that's wrong is that the end part with the pull tab is broken. I rarely have those break it's the rest of the zipper that goes bad for me

I checked it out on Amazon. I read the comments that buyers posted. Some good comments, some not so good comments. Check it out for yourself.
