Zip repairs in Cape Town?

Post by maximus » Mon Jul 09, 2012 5:04 pm

I have a Northface Down Jacket with a broken zip. Where can I take it to have it repaired?

Stay warm and keep safe!

TNF should use YKK zips which have a life time guarantee, so try these people:

DURBAN
30 Randworth Close, Redhill, Durban
PO Box 201675,
Durban North, 4016
Republic of South Africa
T: (27) 31-569-4500
F: (27) 31-5694501/2
E: saenquiries@ykkafrica.com

Let me know if you have any luck with them, I've tried to contact them a couple of times before without success.
Happy climbing
Nic

A bit cheeky but you could try First Ascent? If it was a locally made jacket you would probably get it fixed at no charge.

Paul at Northridge Packs will do an excellent job at a great price,
Durasole in Wynberg, great job although their job jar is packed, you might have to wait a few weeks.

Both use ykk zips as far as I know.

Bring your pack into Camp and Climb and we'll send it off for you :thumright

Zip repairs take about 2-3 working days - depending on how busy Paul is

He charges a small fee and you pay Paul's price - we do NOT add a mark-up ie."admin fee" :afro:
