How do I install my replacement band (resin) on my Casio OC500?

I purchased a new Casio brand band but can't figure out how to pull out the pins - do I need a special tool? Thanks!

There is a special tool but a small penknife can do the job look where the strap end meets the watch push the edge with your nail you will see the spring bar there press it in with the knife it should come out . be careful it dosent fly off and maind your eyes then put the bar in the new strap put 1 pin in the hole hold with thumb and index line it u and depress the spring and line up and release. hope this helps joe

I have a Casio (593 F91W) and cannot get the pins out to change band. Jeweler cannot get the pins out. What is the secret?


It's likely that your band pins are thin and do not have collars that can easily be grabbed by most band removal/installation tools. If you are already changing the band, the best thing to do would be to cut off the band so that the pins are clearly visible, then use a set of nipping pliers to cut the band pins in the middle. At best, you'll cut them in half; at worst, you'll bend the pins into a "V" that will pull at least one end out of their holes. Obviously, you'll need fresh pins with your new watch band.
Efforts to dig the pins out of their holes can easily damage the holes themselves, making the watch useless.

Go to "casio.com" and click on "support".

Although they don't say so directly, their repair section imply that they can replace straps.

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.

Changing the band on my casio oceanus 500 wristwatch


If its an OC500, I just figured it out. There are two sides of the pin visible. One has a dimple and one is completely smooth. Use a small phillips or a punch that is the same diameter as the pin and push on the side with the dimple. The pin pushs in only about 1/4 inch and the smooth side protrudes from the other end. Pull or pry on the smooth end to extract it. The pin is actually 2 parts so be careful not to lose the dimple side piece.
