hilleberg major zipper failureContributors to this thread:
My hillerberg akto main rainfly zipper over the vestibule suffered complete failure on my recent hunt. Both zippers (it has 2) started out with not working right - I zipped it up and returned to find it unzipped - and test showed it simply did not zip right and after zipping completely separated. Shortly after both zippers came completely off pretty easily (lots of snow and ice). I have attempted to fix it with no luck. Ideas?
No ideas besides contacting HB, but how were the bugs?
Clean your zippers after every hunt and apply zipper lube.
Agree with Midwest.
Sounds like a dirty zipper for sure for both to fail.
Never cleaned a zipper! Ooops!
I ain't touchin' that one...... even teed up like that......
You would think for the price of them they would not have issues like that?
I agree Ermine....I don`t think it`s a dirty zipper. There may be parts of a zipper that get dirty but most don`t see any dirt. Hillerberg is a premium heavy duty tent....this should not be happening.
