Zips often become harder to open or close. Most of the time, lubricating the zip helps it run smoothly again. We’ll show you how you can lubricate a zip on a jacket, but it works just as well on other zips such as on a tent or backpack.



No parts required.

  • Open the zip if possible. Spray a small amount of silicone spray at both openings of the slider. Move the slider up and down several times to distribute the silicone.

Das Funktioniert auch mit Graphit. Natürlich kann man sich Graphitöl oder -pulver besorgen, oder einfach eine Bleistiftmine ein paar mal über die Zähne reiben.

Achtung: Natürlich entsteht dabei der graue Graphitstaub, also Vorsicht bei weißer und heller Kleidung!
