    The zipper pulls have broke on my fender soft case.The case itself is in excellent condition still.Anybody have any luck fixing these?Seems like a waste to toss it in the trash but it's pretty much useless without zippers...

    Have the zipper replaced by your local tailor or shoe repair.

    I bring all that stuff to the ol' lady with the small shop down the street who usually hems my pants and stuff. Should be one close to you too.

    If it is just the pull:



    I have used em and they work. OTOH I have also used a paper clip, or the round key ring clips. If the slider is broken I second the shoe repair shop.

    -the best way to fix your zipper issue is buying a hardshell case-
