ZIP CARE ™
Zipper Lube & Cleaner
WEIGHT: 2 oz | 56 gm
If you’re trying to get out of your tent or bivy, or keep warm in your sleeping bag, you need a zipper that works. That’s why we recommend Zip Care™ Liquid Zipper Cleaner & Lubricant be purchased with all our zippered gear.
The number ONE problem with tents and sleeping bags are zippers that fail due to poor maintenance. Invisible to the naked eye, dirty grit gets caught between zipper teeth, prematurely wearing out the slider, and causing the zipper to stop functioning. If you’re lucky, it’s only the slider that needs to be replaced, and that’s a $30 repair. If it’s dirty enough that the teeth get damaged, then it’s a very steep repair or replacement bill. Save yourself some time and money and prolong the life of your gear’s zippers with Zip Care™.
Zip Care™ is the ultimate zipper care for plastic, nylon, or metal zippers. Unique push-pull brush top enables the cleaner to be delivered between the teeth and physically removes harmful dirt, sand, and salt deposits that can jam a zipper. Zip Care™ rinses away after water entry, leaving a unique protective film which lubricates without collecting residue. High-performance zippers should be lubed at least once a year, or after each season for long term reliability. Very dirty zippers can be brushed clean with an old toothbrush before application if necessary.
