Repairing/Replacing broken zipper on Clam 2000

13 posts in this topic

I have a clam 2000 and by a little misfortune last year had my zipper split and a bit of the fabric cut...(won't go into details)....Does anyone a good place to call? Just need a new zipper sewn in??? I'm going to do some calling around, but figured this would be a start....Thanks for any help...

Check to see if it's still under factroy warranty, i think it is a 1 or 2 year on those but not sure, if it is bring it back to where you bought it, if it's a place like gander or scheels they'll either send it in or just give you a new one off the shelf. If it's not under warranty i'd imagine a fabric shop could help you.

I have seen on a different forum on here that someone melted their zipper and someone mentioned Canvas Craft. I think its in the Mankato area but they do good work. Another option is to check out the clam website, I know a while back they had some replacement tents on sale. If it's pretty new they might replace it for free, they did that for me once.

Well thanks all for your help...Clam only has a 1 year warranty, and canvascraft needs it off the base to sew it...they charge an extra 50$ to do that and they also charge 8$ per foot...sooooo...I might just be better off waiting for them to go on sale at end of year.....what a bummer.....thanks again

Can you just unscrew it from the base yourself then put it back on when it's completed?

Instead of buying a whole new house, I cut this from clams website.

I would try Mikes shoe shop in Richmond . He has done some work on some of my traps over the years. He builds custom boat covers etc and does zipper work. Call him and tell him your problem and maybe he can help!

I had my entire zipper replaced on my Voyegeur two years ago. I took it to G and J canvas in Sauk Rapids. they are in the industrial area behind the post office/Perkins. 56.00 for the whole zipper both sides with tabs inside and outside, heavy duty material. I did have to take it off the poles but that was no big deal really. Excellent job, way cheaper than a new house. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Krick's in Waite Park might be able to help but he's not real speedy.

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
