It’s cheaper that having an expert set the bag. You come to tear off a piece of cement and glue on the damaged area. It is like plugging a hole in your roof.

Tip 2: If the tear is large and cannot be easily repaired using cement, you can use patch vinyl and cement. Buy vinyl patch and cut it to the right size of the tear that you set. Fix it under the torn area. Seal the box with the vinyl cement.

Tip 3: If you have luggage leather, and it has a big rip or tear, you can try the same method as the Tip 2. Purchase leather patch and cut to the right size that can be affixed to the damaged area. Make sure it is the same color and the texture of the leather to have a consistent look. Attach it using glue to fabric. You can buy this from the fabric store.

Tip 4: If there are dents in your luggage metal or hard metal suitcase size, open the bags and use a solid material like a block of wood to hit the tooth inside. You can try wood packaging fabric first to not scratch the surface of the metal.

Tip 5: more broken handles cannot be repaired. You need to replace. Buy a replacement handle. Remove the old handle of the bag. You should maybe loosen screws or remove stitches. Once you have deleted an old, attach the new handle. Use the same bolt to fasten the handle in place. If it must be covered by cloth, buy similar to luggage fabric and sew it on the bag.

Tip 6: for fixing stuck zipper, try applying a little fat on the zipper first as SOAP to loosen upwards. If piles of fabric are stuck in the zipper, release it to open until closing stuck zipper. It’s twisted, it should be replaced immediately. If the bag is made of soft fabric, just remove the stitches of the closure zipper and buy a closure zipper replacement with the same color and length. Stitch the other for luggage. For hard-cased luggage, you should have the zipper fixed by a professional.
