The pin in the watch band keeps falling out

Of the many pins in the band of my MK8322, a few of them keep wanting to fall out of the band, so I push them back in. One actually fell all the way out and the watch fell off my arm while eating lunch

In addition to the Pin there is also a small inner "locking" collar about 2mm long that fits into the center section of each link.

I did not notice this collar at first and it fell to the ground when I removed the first link. Without this piece the Pin's will just slide through the links with no locking mechanism.

It fits neatly into the inner portion of the link directly opposite the arrow that shows the direction of removal on the band.

SOURCE: Link pins keep falling out on Ceramic Watch

They probably forgot to put the little locking barrel back in before hammering the links shut again. Some watches have the link, the pin, and a barrel that goes in the link before the pin is hammered in. If your watch needs this barrel then the pin will NOT stay in without it, no matter what.

SOURCE: How do I get the pins out of the titanium band for Casio PAW1500T

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

I have a swiss legend keramica and i cant ajust the bracelet


Most bracelet adjustments require a special tool that is only found in a jewelry store, or your watch can be shortened by the manufacturer. Many watches have pins that push out if you look on the back of the band there should be arrows the pins push in that direction if you have something small enough to fit it the hole, be very careful to put the pin back in the same way. Occasionally some watch bands are not pins they are screws and it can be very difficult to tell the difference between the two. If the watch band has a screw it requires a very small screwdriver and you must be careful NOT to strip the screwhead! You can also shorten some watches by just moving the pin in the band buckle if you have a small tool you should be able to do this yourself, BUT wear glasses because pins will spring out, keep pointed away from your face. Hope this helps!

How do you remove links from a casio watch strap S-1183DV on watch WV-59DU ?


Hi,

You will need to hold the watch firmly in your hand, with the side pointing up. Make sure that you can grip it firmly. If you have trouble holding onto the watch, place it on a stable surface. Make sure that the side is facing toward the ceiling and locate a connecting pin. There will be a connecting pin on each link of the watch band. Select a link, and hold the eyeleteer over the connecting pin for that link. Carefully place the eyeleteer onto the connecting pin. Push gently but firmly until the connecting pin slides partially out the other side. Occasionally, the pin will be difficult to push through the slot. If this is the case, gently tap it though with a standard hammer. Using a pair of pliers, pull on the connecting pin carefully until it slides out. Keep a firm grip on the watch band so that the links do not come apart before you are ready for them to. Separate the Casio watch band. Repeat this process with additional links until the watch band is as small as you would like it to be. Reconnect the band by tapping or pushing a connecting pin into the band where it is disconnected.

Trying to change leather watch band. This watch has a narrow space to attach rather than a wide space. Have tried to push pins and they will not move.


The easiest way to insert and remove watch band pins is with a band tool. This small tool has a very small, thin fork on one side, usually made of tempered or hardened steel, that you use to spear one end of the watch pin; you can then quickly and easily apply the leverage needed to pull one end out of its mounting hole. Many watch pins have a small collar at each end designed to catch this forked end. These inexpensive tools are sold at most jewelry supply houses or come as part of a "watch maintenance kit" that can be purchased online or at Harbor Freight. However, you can also solve your problem without this tool.

There are two approaches to removing stubborn band pins without the right wrench. First, you can use a sharp knife blade (a screwdriver blade won't work) to try to grab the end of one of the pin to try to pull it out of its mounting hole. Band pins without collars are usually designed to pull a bit more easily from one side than from the other; if you're not having any success on one side of a pin, try the other. In addition, you might want to wear leather gloves--using this procedure, it's almost certain that the knife blade will slip out of control at least once or twice, and there's a serious risk of accidentally cutting yourself unless your hands are protected. Further, you may gouge a notch in your knife blade, damaging its smooth edge. Still, if you need to preserve the band pins, this is a common way to go. Finally, if you put too much pressure on the mounting hole in a plastic watch case, you run the risk of tearing out the hole. In that case, the watch is now useless as a wristwatch, because you can't attach a new band to it.

On the other hand, if your replacement watch band comes with replacement pins, you don't need the watch pins that are currently mounted in your watch. If that's the case, use a pair of nipper pliers to cut the pin in half. You can either push the old band out of the way, or you can even cut it off to get better access to the pins. If you cut the pin approximately in the center, it should be easy to pull each half out. Conversely, if you cut the pin very close to one edge, you may have a bit of a challenge pulling the short end out--but it's still quite do-able.

I always change out the band pins when I change a wristwatch band, so I have become increasingly fond of cutting the old pins in half and pulling them out if I can't easily get them out with a band tool. Doing so minimizes the risk that I will damage the pin mounting holes in the case. Even in a metal case, elongated mounting holes will not hold a pin as securely, making it easier for the band to spring out and the watch to fall and get damaged.

How do I remove links from geneva wrist watch band


Take a small hammer and a plastic push pin. Look at the pins in your watch. One side will have a line going through the tip of the pin, and the other side may also have that, but it will be less pronounced. Set your watch on a soft surface (couch cushion or cork board, for example) and place the pushpin onto the pin you want to remove. Tap with a hammer until a few millimeters are sticking out on the other side. Take a pair of needlenose pliers and remove the pin. To put a pin back in the band, push it back in until you cannot push anymore, then use your needlenose pliers to push the pin in the rest of the way. Good luck!

Shorten the band on a Mossimo watch


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.

  • 2

    Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.

  • 3

    Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.

  • 5

    Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).


  • Best regards. Jewel

    Shortening the Length of a Metal Wrist Band


    I just did this for my wife's new Kenneth Cole wrist watch rather easily. You don't need a screwdriver, but a short section of a paper clip will do. I just set the band on a raise surface to allow room for the pin to be pushed out using the paper clip. For this watch, one side of the pin resembles the slotted side of a small screw - but it is not a screw. This is the side that bulges up a bit to help the pin stay in place. I believe if you punch it out from the opposite side it will fall off quickly, but if you do from the bulged side it, too, will come out but with some resistance. To reattach the band you need to punch the pin into the slot in such a way that its bulged side is on top otherwise you may end up with a bent pin. You must also first line up the hole with the paper clip before reinserting the pin. Good luck.

    Casio pathfinder SPF 70-s titanium band adjustment


    I purchased a Casio Pathfinder solar/atomic watch, with compass, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, model 1200T-7WC (titanium).
    Has the titanium band - on this particular band each link is somewhat waveshaped {i.e., there are 2 "arms" from the link making contact with the middle part of the link above (above meaning towards the watch body), and 1 arm fitting between the 2 arms of the next link down). Unlike described in the first solution, the pin is not split, but solid (doesn't look like a slotted screw on 1 end, so the solution at http://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-a-Casio-S-935L-Watch-Band is no help). Here's what to do if you have this band:

    1. Note: before you start, be advised there is a tiny loose 1/8" part (sleeve) that will fall out as you pull the links apart, so work over an appropriate surface to "catch" it. Push pin (from the upper "arrow end) of one of the removeable links (those with the arrows on the backside) out of its hole with a fine poker (I used a 1/32" jeweler's screwdriver, an unbent paperclip would also work, just more likely to bend as you push pin out). This takes some force to do - in my case, after pushing, the pin projected out about 1/2 of it's length, I used needle-nosed pliers to gently pull it out the rest of the way). CAREFUL - once pin is removed and you pull the link away from the one above, a small (1/8") constriction sleeve should fall out of the center arm of the link above. SAVE THIS SLEEVE!

    2. Using the same procedure, remove the pin from the bottom end of the link you're removing. again, SAVE THE SLEEVE.

    3. to rejoin the band once the link is removed, look at the single/middle "arm" of the upper link, looking for the hole where the pin goes through. One side of the hole should be noticeably larger/wider than the other side - this is where you will place the SLEEVE - I used tweezers, or needle-nosed pliers will work - it will drop into hole. Keep this upright so that sleeve doesn't fall out, and slide the 2 arms of the lower link in place around the center arm.

    4. Slide the pin you removed into one of the outer link arm holes - I found it easier if I started from below, pushing it into the center arm - it will stop when it reaches that 1/8" constriction sleeve. I set the extruded end on the pin on a magazine (i.e., slightly padded surface) and then pushed the top side of the band down, forcing the pin through the constriction sleeve and up into the upper arm hole, and Voila, your band is reconnected. The sleeve is important (without the sleeve in place, the pin will simply fall back out).
