    If you mean that it separated while still zipped and connected. I have done this with metal and nylon zippers that separated. I spray a little WD40 along the zipper. Then gently try to zip or unzip it. The WD40 acts as a lubricant and assists in zip/unzip.

    I have read posts where people have used candle wax to to make a zipper work right. If my memory serves me right, I also think soap would work. Just rub the bar of soap up and down zipper. That's a really old remedy.

    I rub both sides of the zipper with an old candle. Then I use a big thumbtack to hold one side down (usually on a piece of foam board) while I work the bottom pieces back together. Since your zipper works from top or bottom, it may work slightly differently. 😇
