On my new ProTrek PRW-3000T, there are the small collars which douglasjryan describes. Looking closely at them, I believe that they are not directional (you can re-insert them either way, which is convenient, because they do tend to come flying out at unexpected moments after you've removed a pin). Neither are the pins directional, as far as I can tell. (I think it is this clever and easy to use, and probably more durable, collar design, which eliminates the need for the split-end fragile pins of the past).

I was able to do everything with only hand strength, a very small jewellers' screwdriver to act as the pin pusher, the requisite needlenose pliers to pull the pins out once the pin pusher has extended the pin end by 2-3mm from the bracelet link, and an old toothbrush (great idea, Arturs Kalnins, thanks!) handle to push the pins back in.

To amplify Arturs Kalnins' admonition - the pins go back in following the same direction they came out. That is to say, you push from the edge of the bracelet link which has the arrow etched in it to get the pin out, and you put the pin back in starting from that same edge of the bracelet link which has the arrow etched in it.

A note about pushing the pins back in. Although they seem to be stronger than the pins of the past, you still would not want to apply a sideways force to them. So, start inserting the pin back in with fingers, or using the needlenose pliers gently, to get the end of the pin inserted through the first edge of the bracelet link and into the collar, then continue gently pushing, being quite careful to push only straight (this is particularly important if using a toothbrush handle) until the pin is pushed through the collar and into the centre section of the bracelet link. Before trying to force the pin the last few millimetres, make sure that the bracelet links are lined up - if you are using only hand strength as I did, instead of a bracelet holder, it is easy for the pin to be inserted through one edge, through the collar, through the centre of the link, and to have the band slightly twisted so that the other edge of the link is not lined up with the pin hole. Once the links are aligned, continue pushing with the toothbrush handle to sink the pin the rest of the way.

I found that the end of the toothbrush (at least, the old one that I used, which has a rounded end) makes a convenient pusher for the last fraction of a millimetre to get the pin end flush with the bracelet link edge.

Thanks everyone, you made the process of sizing my watch band (I had to remove four links) quick and easy!

SOURCE: how to adjust metal wrist band on casio watch?

  1. Pop out one spring pin to disconnect the band from the watch or from itself at the clasp. If you don't have a special tool for this, a needle or a pin will probably work. A straightened paper clip may be too thick, but they are cheap so you could try it. Now the watch and band can sit flat on the work table.
  2. Examine the links. If some of them have little arrows on them (usually the ones closest to both sides of the clasp), they are removable.
  3. These removable links are held together by a "U" shaped (actually a squared off "U" - sort of like this |_| ) pin that is inserted into the link. There may should be some kind of window-like opening in the link into which you can insert a narrow screwdriver or similar tool or even a small nail (around 6-penny size) and push out the |_| shaped pin. A straightened paper clip is probably not sturdy enough, but you could try it. Push in the direction of the arrow (from tail to point). The links that were joined by the |_| pin can now be separated.
  4. Remove a second such pin from another adjacent link. Now a single link is free and can be discarded (or kept). Reconnect the remaining adjustable links with one of the |_| pins and re-attach the spring pin from step 1 so the band is reunited with itself or with the watch.
  5. Try it on. If it is still too long, repeat the process. Good luck.

SOURCE: Can not figure out how to remove links from Casio watch band

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.

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.

On most brands, there are pins that form hinges for the links of strap. You need to push them out to remove links. Usually you would find arrows marked from inside of the metal bracelet which show you the direction in which to remove the pins. You can remove it if you have a small watch maker's screwdriver but you have to be careful. or get one of these ..

which should help you to remove the link pins safely without scratching.

Casio PRO TREK error 'OP EN' Display frozen with the above msg. None of the buttons - except the light - works. Whats wrong .. battery charge shows FULL


The problems is very simple: On the back cover (inside) is a little Cu metal Part. This part is glued to back cover using a poor glue (rubbered glue) and, in time, is moving from original position. You must put back this parts to original positin ( a little hole inside of back cover) and glue using a good glue. When the back cover is mounted , this part must have a ferm contact with two springs from mechanism (sensor for back cover open). If beatwin this springs isn't a electric short (using Cu metal parts) the internal mechanism of watch "see" the back cover is open and show "OPEN" on screen!
