Best thing to do is to go to a watch repair, the cost should be no more that $10 to fix. The cost far outweighs the frustration of finding something to put the hole to repair without breaking clasp. Look around, if you cant find a repair service let me know and I'll help you make a pin for your watch. Good luck!!!

How do you take the links off to make it smaller?


Tiny screws in some of the links near the clasp usually. When you unscrew it with a jewellers screwdriver and the whole pin comes out and the link drops away.

If not, the adjustment is on the clasp itself by moving the final link further into the clasp cover. Press the tip if the spindle with the point of a knife or a pin. They are spring loaded in the centre.

The clasp on my steel watchband pulls away from the band creating a large gap. it looks bad and catches on things. what do i do?


You need to make sure that if you had the watch band adjusted they did not adjust it at the clasp. When you adjust the watchband links should be removed if you adjust it at the clasp the band keeps pulling open. When you open the clasp fully make sure the pins are on the end holes. If the pins are in the end holes then, the clasp is probably sprung somehow and you will need a new one or have a jeweler or watch repairman fix it! You may also be able to order a new clasp from manufacturer! Hope this helps!!

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

How to remove links from band


This band is put together with cotter pins. To remove the cotter pins look at the edge of the band. The end of the pin that comes out is split and looks like a screw. The end that is solid is the end you want to push from. Use a small punch to push the pin out. The split end is the bigger end of the cotter pin so it needs to come out and go back in the same way it came out. Make sure you remove an even number of links on each side so the watch sits on the wrist the right way. You also have a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust the clasp simply use a punch to press the spring bar in the clasp in until it moves. This is a spring bar so be careful it doesnt jump out if the clasp comes apart.

How do you remove the pin out of Starck and Fossil PH1100 watch?


Ok, so if you are like me then you probably thought removing the three tiny screws from either side of the strap, and cutting segments of the strap and re-screwing the clasps back was going to do it. Unfortunately one realises that the clasps do not slacken to let the rubber straps out even after the screws are off. The critical point is to get the side pins out which is no simple feat. Getting the pins out releases the clasps and the rubber strap.
To get the pins out, use a wire cutter to cut down a paper clip to a length of 1 .5 cms or so. Hold this with a pair of tweezers along the axis of the pins while you hammer down in the direction of the small arrow inscribed on the metal clasp. With persistence a part of the pin comes out from the other end and you can then pull it out completely with a pair of pliers.
Removing the two pins with release the ends of the rubber straps. cut away segments as required while trying on so that you dont cut too many. Make sure you cut the same number of segments on each side. I had to cut three from each side since I have very thin wrists.
Now put the rubber strap back hold the clasps in position and push the pin back in place. Put the screws back and you should be in business.
It sounds complicated but is quite simple if someone shows you how....which I hope I have been able to.

Pin that holds metal band clasp is missing


If it is only the pin that holds the metal band, this is an extremely inexpensive part that is available at most stores that sell watches.

Missing hinge pins


You will have to get a complete clasp assembly, which will have to be ordered from the factory that makes that model. If the clasp assembly is not available, A jeweler might have that part or be able to repair it for you.
