Mcdevito75 here, To remove the links from any watch band requires a special tool called a Link Remover tool, available on ebay. You can remove the links without the tool but the time and work, just isn"t worthit, even with the tool if you don"t know anything about watches, your best bet would be to look for a small watch repair shop in your area , and have them remove the links, hold onto these links in case you need to ever replace them.

How do I add a link to the wristband?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Turn your watch on its side so the links are vertical. On the inside of the links closest to the clasp you can see arrows, which point in the direction that the pins must be pushed out. Only about four links on either side of the clasp have arrows, because these are the only links with removable pins. On the edge of the links on the opposite end from where the arrow is pointing you will see a small circle where the pin is inserted.

    Place the tip of your pointed tool on the small circle mentioned in Step 1. Push downward on the pin in the direction the arrow is pointing. Once the pin starts to come out of the link, use your fingertips or a pair of tweezers to completely remove the pin from the link. You may need to use force, but be careful not to scratch your watchband. Use a pointed tool from a jeweler's or hobby kit or watch pin removal tool.

  • 3

    Slide the links apart where you removed the pin so there is a gap in the watchband. Slide your new link into the gap and fit the neighboring links into the new link so it matches the rest of the watchband.

    Insert the new pin into the watchband. You will need to insert two pins, the pin you moved in Step 2 and your new pin, into the two empty pin holes. You need to insert the pin small end first so the larger pin head does not pass through the link. Insert the pin against the direction of the arrow rather than in the direction the arrow is pointing like you did in Step 2. Use your pointed tool and your fingertips to push the pins completely in the links until the pin head is flush with the edge of the link.

    Remove a link from an armitron ladies watchband model 6P29


    More than 90% of Fossil's watches utilize pins that push out.  You can determine whether or not it pushes out by checking if there is an arrow on the back of the link.  If there is an arrow, you should push the link out in the direction of the arrow.  Usually, the link needs to be pushed at least 25% of the way out before it will be loose enough to pull out.  I suggest using pliers and be sure you pull straight out or you risk damaging the pin.  Be sure to watch for a small tube or 'sleeve' that may be in the link.

    Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


    The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!
