How do I get a Jansport backpack zipper unstuck ?

The zipper’s stuck on the fabric that’s suppose to be over the zipper .It’s really stuck in there and nobody cant pull it out .How do I get it unstuck without taking out the zipper ?

The quality of Jansport is terrific so don’t worry the bad result. Just with full strength.

A busted zipper doesn’t have to be the end of the line for your favorite bag or jacket. From zippers that won’t budge to those that have gone off track, there are a number of ways to repair a zipper without installing a new one.
Step 1
Examine your zipper to identify what may be causing it not to close. Look for thread or material caught in the teeth or a gap in the closure to identify the source of your zipper troubles.
Step 2
Cut away any threads or fabric caught in the teeth of your zipper with a pair of embroidery scissors or a razor before attempting to pull the slide over the congested area.
Step 3
Lubricate the teeth of your zipper by rubbing a bar of beeswax along them while the slider is pulled to one side.
Step 4
Pull the slider from one end to the other a couple of times to fully coat the teeth.

If you have ever noticed there is a little spring loaded button inside the loop where the zipper tab goes through. When you pull he tab either up or down it presses down on this button. The button acts like a locking mechanism to keep zipper in place where you leave it pulled up to. Push it down with little screwdriver, and at same time pull on stuck fabric as you move zipper up and down. You may need a third hand to do this.

Jansport Backpack Material

Put a water-based lubricant (yes, the kind for sex) around all sides of the zipper and pull. Works like a charm and doesn’t stain or tear the backpack fabric. Do not use a silicone-based lube because that will stain. Sliquid’s a good brand to use because it’s all plant-based ingredients so no bad chemicals on your backpack. And then you’ll have a super great lube for non-backpack related activities!

Answer 6

I had the same problem, I just used my pocket knife to make a little cut in the fabric just ahead of where the zipper was. pulled the fabric after the cut out of the way of the zipper and it came right out.

Answer 7

The best thing that works is if you use a regular pencil (not mechanical) and rub the graphite on the top and bottom the the zipper part in front of the jammed area. You have to pull kinda hard but it definitely works.

have one friend hold the stuck cloth and then you pull the zipper. comes right out
