    Soak the zipper in a vinegar and water solution, maybe 50/50 to start with. You can go full strength vinegar if necessary. The vinegar dissolves the salt that crusts up the zipper. Check it every few hours by gently pulling on it with pliers. I let one sit too long and it ate up part of the zipper.

    Ok. So how do you repair the zipper on the board bag once it comes off the zipper? I have a Ocean Earth bag and the zippers don't work anymore. They zip but the zippers don't close. Am tired of paying good money for these things only to have them fail after several years use.
