I use Chap Stick on all zippers a few times a season to keep it all working smoothly and keep the bad stuff away. Choose a scent you like!

Thanks for the tip. You can also use a solution of water and vinegar to de salt the zippers.
I have used that and then applied a little WD40 and just worked the zip a bunch until Free and easy.
Excellent tip though as last week I started my Gear refresh work and first think I did was unstick salty zippers.

Its not a shelf but I hope to add a few more too it this year!!    :tiphat:

That's a pretty cool display Andrew - and I love that you have a shot of the Oak Tree turn! I have an old proof that I like of me at Oak Tree before it came down. Had thought it was taken by John of Pics of You but apparently not. Classic case of you only realize what you'll miss when you don't have it (though I don't miss the debris the tree sometimes left on track).

I just moved my WERA tins yesterday and told myself I need to do something with them in the off season. We'll see.....

Since I unfortunately don't know (and can't find) the photog who took this picture maybe if I post it here I can find them and buy it. Should've done it years ago, but....I dunno....

Here at TSG, we are busy working on cleaning, conditioning and repairing leathers for the upcoming season -  which brings me to the topic of this discussion.

The body salt left behind on your gear's zipper can really cause serious damage in a very short period of time.
Take a look at these photos. Can you see the metal actually being eroded  away?
Now is the time to check your leathers for this kind of breakdown.  If you do see a turquoise crusty build up on your zipper, you can use a good de-salting solution and an old toothbrush to remove it easily before it eats away the metal completely.
Then we recommend using a good zipper lube or you can apply a little bees wax or vaseline to the zipper pull, then work it in with a few pulls.

We hope this tip helps to preserve and take good care of your leathers.

Happy Holidays!

Tommy and Susan
