Zip pull broken?
Replace the zip pull with a new zip or a lovely decorative trinket!
Zip getting stuck?
Take a candle and rub the wax along the zip. Pull the zip up and down a couple of times to help distribute the wax.
Zip coming undone?
Attach a key ring to the zip, use this to pull up the zip and hang the ring over your trouser button. Then close the trousers using the buttonhole.
