Yes, I know the title sounds comical, but in all the years I've been wearing jeans I never knew this handy little trick for keeping your zipper up when it should be up.
Sometimes you get a pair with a wonky zip that is 'afraid of heights.' I currently have two pairs like that in my wardrobe and rather than suffering along with a dodgy and sometimes dangerous safety pin, I decided to find a better solution.
And then I came across this clever fix that is so simple I feel like slapping my forehead. How come I never knew about this or thought of it myself????
Simply attach a plain split-ring keyring to the zipper pull.
Zip up and hook the ring around your button
Button up as normal, without a trace.
If you're thinking 'pah, I knew that old trick' then why oh why didn't you tell me about it, eh?!
I hope this helps someone somewhere from losing their dignity or getting pranged by another pin.
