the melted tooth thing? what you do is snip off one or two teeth from some scrap zipper tape. then push them into the teeth at the end of the good zipper then take your hotknife and melt the sides welding the teeth inplace. I can take a pic tomorow   if you like?

Sorry, I was too vague.  I meant the first one that YOU do!
