Question about Timex 40131 Wristwatch
I replaced the battery but can not get the back to snap back into place
You are much better off investing in a watch case press. These are simple to usee and can be adapted to all sIves of watch.

I used the end of a rubber mallet mallet handle- round & flat. Pressure applied from opposite side of where you opened it towards that opening point.

First open your bracelet. Then align groove in caseback with crown and press that side lightly into the case. Then using both hands(one from dial side, another from back) press as strong as you can.
If this do not work:
Get mens leather belt and place it on flat surface(table top). Lay the watch face down on that belt. Again adjust caseback as before and using your weight push caseback down with both hands.
NEVER use hammer or similar.
If none of these works- go and see your nearest watchmaker.

Try a very small dab of a very light lubrican on the sealing edges.
If you haven't already tried it, press the edge of the watch back using two fingers and move them appart until they meet again.
Season with a lot of parience... good luck!

I used a modification of the vise solution. I put a plastic bottle screw cap on either side of the watch (bottle side in) and tightened the vise. I heard a satisfying "pop" and I am on my way. Fred
