Select a replacement slider and zip stop.
Remove the zip stop at the end of the zip by prying it open with a wire cutter and pulling it away.
Remove the broken slider.
Insert the new slider onto the zip and use the wire cutter to press the zip stop into the position where the old stop had been.
Positon the zip stop together with the help of the tweezers.
Pinch the zip stop together with the help of the tweezers.
Remove the zip puller (black) from the slider and thread it onto the new slider.
