When a zipper pull breaks, or the slider simply wears out, you don’t need to replace the entire zipper. Just replace the zipper slider. This is a quick repair that can make the difference between a zipper that doesn’t work at all and one that works like it’s brand new. Determine the size of your replacement slider by looking on the bottom of your existing slider.

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

Where do I get the zipper stop????

How do you find the size slider(in my case 5 millimetres) and also the right size teeth that will fit into the zipper.

I used this Guide to replace the zipper slide on my wife's favorite Disney fleece jacket. I purchased my slide and the stop online. Since I'm not sure about the rules on posting vendor's info, I will say GOOGLE "nylon coil zipper slide". You can have your "zippershipped" right to your door.
