What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is super easy, just check you hook in advance to be sure it fits in the eye and mark your placement carefully so the hook can't be seen and it holds up the zipper properly.

How about just replace the zipper? This works in a pinch but what a pain. New zipper would be the solution.

I usually would, but many sewers find zipper replacement intimidating. Non sewers can do this by hand and not have to get rid of the pants.

Zipper replacement isn't for everyone - especially non-sewers. This quick fix worked for me in a pinch. If you can thread a needle, you can sew!
