WHAT YOU NEED:
INSTALLING A BAG ZIPPER CORD END
1. Fold The Zipper
First, fold the ends of the zipper tape to fit the end cap. To do so, flip the zipper over to the back and fold one side of the tape towards the center, behind the zipper teeth. Do the same with the other side of the tape, then fold this side a second time for a neat, tight fold. If you're using the end cap for a cord, you can skip this step.
2. Add Glue
Add a few drops of glue inside the end cap for an extra secure hold. Any liquid glue that can adhere to metal will work, like this Industrial Strength Glue.
3. Insert The Zipper Or Cord
Slide the folded end of the zipper or the end of the cord into the glue-coated end cap. If using a zipper, make sure the bottom of the end cap (the flat side with a small hole) is facing the same direction as the back of the zipper.
4. Use The Screw To Secure
Insert the included end screw into the small hole on the back of the end cap. Screw with a small screwdriver until tight and secure, and you're finished!
