See a Problem?
Close Figure Viewer. There is another issue that this resolves which pertains to myself even more than the self lowering fly problem. I'm diabetic and have issues with peripheral neuropathy which really makes getting hold of the zipper tab a challenge.
I'll be sending a mental telegraphy 'thank you' every time I don't have to fumble to zip and unzip! Reply 3 years ago.
Yet another win: this will keep the zip tab from sliding down into the sewn end of the fly so you can't grab it to zip up. Reply 5 years ago on Introduction.
Oh my goodness, I am so glad that this idea has another great purpose. I'll be sending mental high fives back to your 'thank you's. I just saw this, and literally 2 minutes later I am now doing this. Right now!
Easy Fix for Falling Fly: 4 Steps (with Pictures)
On my pants! They have been driving me crazy. Thank you thank you! Damn, I've been doing this for 20 years! I'll fix your pants if you give me a ride home! So simple and lovely.
Failing and Flying
If anyone has trouble getting a small enough keyring, check out the jewelry section for "split rings". Should even be able to find colors. This or an elastic are a great fix if the lock on your slider is worn out. But try this first. Simply make sure the pull tab is in the down position. That's what locks it. Yes the lock can wear out but also the slider it self could spread open too much. Generally the result of that is a zipper that opens up from the bottom.
A quick pinch with needle nose pliers on the narrow end of the slider and poof it's fixed. Take it from a retired seamstress who would much rather fix a slider then tear out and replace a zipper. That's another good idea. I'm not great at sewing so if the pants are big enough and the pull tab has broken off at one side, near the bottom of the zipper I have pulled out a couple of the metal ribs the pull rides on and put it back together. Then I hand sew the zipper so the pull tab can't go down far enough to come back off.
