Question about Casio G-Shock MTG930DA-8V Wrist Watch
Assuming this is NOT an expansion band, there are generally two different types of links: one is a straight pin or cotter pin, the other is an "L" shaped pin. Look at the side of the band. If there is a small round hole it's either a pin or cotter pin. On the inside of the band, there is quite often an arrow that indicates the direction you need to pump the pin to remove it. I have several different tools for removing pins, but you don't need to use a special tool if you're patient and careful. You can use a stiff wire and gently hammer on the end of the pin to push it out. You will need an open area above the head of the pin so it has someplace to go when it clears the band. With the head of the pin sticking out, grip with a pair of pliers and pull. Same process with a cotter pin. Installation is the reverse of removal only you are travelling against the arrow. Once you have the pin almost all of the way in, I pick up the watch and press the head of the pin against the corner of my workbench to push it in the rest of the way. For the "L" shaped pins, they are trickier. I made a special tool for that, but you aren't going to want to do that. If you have an awl, you can brace the edge of the band against a soft metal such as aluminum so it won't scratch. On the inside of the band, you will find the arrows showing the direction you need to go to remove the pin. Youwill also see a small hole along the outer edge of the band. Put the tip of the awl at a low angle against a protrusion that you can see in the hole. Gently tap the awl in the direction of the arrow. When youcan see enough of the pin sticking out the side of the band, you can grip it with a pair of pliers and pull it out the rest of the way. Installation is the reverse of removal. Again, use something to push the head of the pin against.
