when the zip runs downs, this means the puller has not flipped down in lock position


zipper puller have a locking mechanism under the flip section at the back of the puller

There are two tiny curved metal mechanism on each side on the end of the head which is the locking section 

the slider might not be working properly. First, double-check to make sure a piece of cloth or thread isn't stuck in the zipper. Next, look at the individual teeth. If any of them are sticking out, grab a pair of pliers and move them back into place so they're all straight.
If the teeth are straight, and clean, take a look at the slider itself. Over time, the slider starts to come apart, and when that happens it stops clinching the zipper teeth together. Grab some pliers and try closing the slider together until it catches the teeth again.
As for jeans, the solution is a little more complicated. If you can, you need to remove the metal bumper at the bottom and replace it with stitches, or just tie it off in the middle if teeth are missing at the bottom. Unfortunately, this only really works with pants where you can actually get to the bottom bumper.
If that fails, or you're working with pants where you can't get to the entire zipper run, you might need to  replace the zipper completely

leaving the zipper flip up will let the header flow down and open the zipper

A common problem with pants zippers is a zipper that won't stay up. This can lead to all types of embarrassing situations. Unfortunately, you can't really fix this problem permanently unless you completely replace the zipper.
That said, you have two simple temporary fixes. The easiest is to slide a key ring available in our store through the zipper puller and over your waist button to hold. This keeps the zipper up in a simple way. If you'd prefer a little more flexibility, you can also try a rubber band.


always lock you puller face DOWN
