    Question Veto out of warranty zipper replacement

    I have a Veto that is out of warranty and needs a zipper replaced.

    Nobody in my area does any type of repair on something like this and has no suggestions.
    Last time I contacted Veto about this, no response.

    Anyone had success with an out of warranty repair on a Veto bag?

    Man IDK if I would trust them to get it done in a reasonable amount of time if they can’t even respond to an email.

    Anyways can you post a picture?

    I'd buy a second one and send the first one back for repair.

    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    There was a post a while back where someone sewed new zippers himself. Didn't look too bad.

    Your local drycleaners may offer repairs. My mom used to do alterations and repairs for a drycleaners. The hard part in my mind would be sourcing a really good zipper like veto uses.

    They started using metal zippers vs the plastic on some bags a couple of years ago.

    I didn't know they ever used plastic. I am pretty sure mine is a metal YKK zipper.

    Mine split at the bottom the other day, I poked 2 holes in the fabric part of the zipper just above where it would no longer stay together and put a nylon cable tie above the part that no longer closes. Of course the bag is 5 1/2 years old. I might just get the one on wheels next time.
