Bestop zippers / zipper slider & pull assembly

So putting on the Bestop recently and two of the zipper sliders let go (see pics). Anyone ever go through this? Essentially I'm looking to see if anyone knows where to source replacements for these that are the same size. I'm sure I can finagle them on once I find a replacement, just have no idea where to start.

Cool, will give them a call tomorrow and see what's up. Is Robbie sporting a custom ST on the Disco?

Yup. They also did the top and interior on the bentley that went to pebble, so the quality is there.

Hudson trail outfitters sells replacement zipper sliders that are meant to go onto an existing zipper. I haven't tried them yet though. They look pretty good and come in a variety of sizes
