About Zippers and Sliders
The slider sometimes catches on cloth when opened or closed. Is there any way to free the slider without causing damage to the cloth?
Remove the trapped cloth by moving the slider back while pulling the cloth outward. Take care to avoid the possibility of the zipper getting caught when opening and closing it.
