Zip repairs have become extremely popular over the last few years, especially with small businesses. The problem many small businesses face is that they either make their own zip-ties or buy them from a supplier, only to find that once the zip has been removed the zip-ties no longer work. Zip-ties and zip-recovery are very similar and there are ways in which you can repair damaged zip-ties yourself. This article will explain how to repair a zip-ties and zip-recovery.
If you’re zip-ties or zips have fallen out of place, the first thing you need to do is get them back into place. For this, you’ll probably need to use some sort of epoxy or glue to hold them together. Many suppliers sell zip-ties or zips that come with this type of glue already on them. If you don’t have these on hand, it’s also possible to borrow or purchase some from a hardware store. Once they have been adhered together, you should use some sort of cleaner or alcohol to help clean them before using any type of tape or epoxy to seal the zip-ties in place.
The final step is to use some kind of heat-resistant lubricant to glue the new zip onto your old zip-ties. You may be able to find this type of lubricant at any local hardware store. Make sure that the tube is meant for use with zip threads and that you apply it uniformly. To keep the zip-ties in place once they have been applied with the lubricant, you can use some paperclips or other forms of temporary adhesive. Once the lube has allowed the zip to bond to the threads, it’s time to put the zip-ties back into place and re-tie them with another set of temporary adhesive.
