Thumbs up Broken zipper pull?

Now that YKK and the rest of the ASSHOLES have gone to cast zinc pull handles.....I broke 2 last week

Here's the solution, stainless steel mini split rings......think key rings
Knot a 1/4" wide strip of leather to it and you can find it by feel, at speed
The rings were $0.29
Needed a longer leather strip but this will work with a drop of CrazyGlue

That's a classic fix but a good one.
