Pull the teeth off the end of the zipper with pliers.
To get the zipper back on, you will need to expose some of the fabric at the end of the zipper. Pull the zipper teeth off one at a time using a pair of pliers. Keep removing teeth until you have exposed about 2” to 3” (5 cm to 7.6 cm) of the fabric.

Likewise, people ask, how do you get a zipper back on track without cutting it?

First, you have to get the zipper slider back on track. To do this, cut a slit between the teeth of the zipper tape. It should be a deep open slit so that you'll be able to insert it into the zipper slider. Slide the zipper slider all the way down.

Also, how do you make a zipper glide smoothly? Sharpen a graphite pencil, then rub the tip of the pencil up and down the length of the zipper. Repeat this process on the back side of the zipper. Graphite is a dry lubricant that allows zippers to slide more easily.
