I need to repair a pair of pants. The zipper teeth are bent. Looking at the stitching, replacing the zipper will take at least an hour or two.
What can be done to fix this in under 15 minutes? I would like a permanent solution (not just a safety pin for a temporary fix).
I'm thinking perhaps using Velcro, but attaching it to the pants looks time consuming. That said, Velcro could be a possible answer if it includes a method to affix it fairly quickly.
