How to change a watch band for shark freestyle model 788

I have the replacement band and removed the side screws from the band; however, it is still connected.  I am not sure if I should pull it out at the risk of pieces breaking off and preventing me from attaching the new band.  Let me know what you suggest.
Thanks! Jim

Jim, you still need to remove the pins that the band is being held on with. You can use a small jewelers screwdriver to push them in.
However, I am having a tough time getting my new band on!

Looking at pictures of the watch , you will need to remove one side of the strap by undoing the screws on the side of the strap.
once you have removed one side of the strap unscrew the four screws on the case back of the watch.
then you will be able to lift the case back of the watch , it has a rubber seal on it which you need to carefull not to break.
Good luck and be carefull.

Where can I find replacement links or a replacement band for an aquaforce rothco 04Q US Marines watch It is a very unique band with tag hauer type u shaped links


As far as links go only the manufacturer would carry them. However a replacement band can be easily installed and can be purchased at your local Wal-Mart. You need to measure how wide the band is where it connects to the watch in MM (most bands have a width that is uniform however I've seen some before that get smaller as you move away from the head). The band is held onto the head by a part known as a spring bar. In order to remove the band get something small like a dental pick (that's what I use) and push the bar in while at the same time pulling on the band. If you don't pull the spring bar will reengage and snap back in. Removing the band is fairly simple however the trick is getting them back in. I line the spring bar over the natch and try to get one side in at a time although on some watches both sides of the bar must be pressed in at the same time before the band will fit in the slot. It really just takes patients and a steady hand.

Need to take band off and replace with a new one


If memory serves me right. There are screws on either side of the band by the case. Use two small eyeglass screw drivers and turn clock and counter clockwise one screw driver on each side of the band. Yeah i know its difficult but the screws only loosen that way. Then pull the tube out and do the same for the other side.

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.

Adjusting a casio s940db watchband


  • On the inside of the band, locate the links with the arrow etched on them. The arrows mark the removable links.Lay the watch on its side on a flat surface with the arrows pointing downward. Be sure to leave about 1/2 cm of space between the bottom of each removable link and the flat surface. Using a 1/32" flat head jeweller's screw driver (or metric size 1.0), insert the tip of the screw driver into one side of the removable links' pin holes. You will find that the pins have an end that looks like a screw head. This is misleading - press down very firmly on the other end. Press downward firmly to make the pin pop out the other side. Be careful not to lose it.Remove the pin on the other side of the arrow-marked link.Repeat as necessary to remove half the needed links. You will remove the other half from the other side of the band to maintain equal band length.Flip the watch over so the arrows are pointing upward.Align the holes in the remaining links. Insert the rounded edge of one of the pins into the open link hole. The pin will go in without trouble until the top.Holding the pin in place, carefully flip the watch over again and firmly push the pin fully into placing using the flat surface. The pin will snap into place.Repeat for the other half of the band as necessary.

    I have an new band for the G-shock 500A but can't figure how to get the screws out of the old band to replace it. The screws turn both ways and don't seem to move. Is there some trick or special tool I...


    Yes, You need two screwdrivers. One for each side. One screw on one side is long and goes all the way through the watchband and threads into the screw oon the other side which is smaller. Once you have backed the longer screw all the way out, you should be able to give the watch band a few light taps and the long screw should fall out. The screw on the aother side may require a bit more tapping or coaxing with the screwdriver to remove it. Once both screws are out, you can remove the watchband.

    Shorten watch band


    For this you will need a pair of fine tweezers, a small flat blade screw driver and a lot of patience.

    Determine how many links you need to take out by pinching the band while it is on the wrist. Once you know how many you are ready to remove the links.
    spread the band and you will see that the very end of the links is tabbed. Be careful and fold down the end of the link with your small screw driver. Be careful not to bend anything. You will then need to turn the band over and bend down the tab of the link on the opposite side but right beside the first tab you bent down. Now you will see how the band is held together. If you look into the two tabs you just bent down you will see a small peice of metal connecting the two links. This is a staple. Pull the staple out with your tweezers.
    Now go to the exact opposite side and perform the same task. The band should now be apart where you remove the staples from each side.
    Now count down the number of links you want to remove and perform the task again.
    *Remember that you must do it the exact same way on each side or the band will not go back together.
    Once you have the correct number of links out the band will go back together the same way you took it apart.
    When folding down the tabs be sure to use gentle even pressure so you dont over bend them and keep the band from moving freely. I usually find it easiest to use the fla part of the screw driver in a gentle pressing motion.

    Remember that this take watch makers and technician a lot of practice. Be patient. If you arent patient or good with very small parts, pop into your local jewlery store for help.

    Watch band resizing


    This band requires a pair of band pliers to pull out a U shaped tab that connect the two links. Sometimes you can get a small screw driver in to start the tab coming out and pull it the rest of the way out with a pair of pliers. The tab is located in the middle. You'll note that, if you look at the side of the band, there are three layers of metal. The tab is in the middle and slides out. If you look at the inside of the band, the side that would be on your wrist, you will see the slot that the watch plier would fit into to start sliding the tab out.
    * I do not recommend this repair for the layperson. I suggest seeing a watch maker/technician.

    How do you replace the watch band on a casio g-shock


    The following proccedure mentioned can be implied for replacing only resin(plastic) strap.

    If you have a spare Band, you can replace it with the help of one small four mouth screw driver and one small 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which you can get from any electronics/ computer hardware shop.

    Band = Strap

    You just need to remove the strap with the help of 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which ever you find convinent by removing the Spring Bars. After removing the strap put out spring bars from both sides as these may be used for again fixing the band.

    If you find difficulty in removing the Band, you just need to unscrew the screws on for side of the watch case and remove the ring and after fixing the strap you can fix the ring again.

    The new band can be fixed in the same way as it has been removed. You need to put the spring bar in the hollow space of strap and keeping the buckle side part of starp above the watch i.e 12 position over the space where it has to be fixed, then put one end of the Spring bar on one hole in the watch case and press the spring bar to get inside from other side (hole in the watch case). In the same way you can replace ******** other side.

    In case of any difficulty take your watch to nearest Casio Service Centre for assistance or solution of problem.

Pin Type I (Tools: Eyeleteer, Staking stand, Hammer or Pliers) Step 1. Set the watchband onto a staking stand or other appropriate holder. Step 2. Use an eyeleteer to push out the watchband connecting pin toward the arrow. If the pin is too tight, use a hammer to lightly tap out the pin. Step 3. Pull out the connecting pin with a pair of pliers. Step 4. The selected link can be disconnected from the adjoining link. 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type (Tools: Tweezers or Pliers) Step 1. Use a pair of tweezers to push out the leaf spring of the link in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Remove the leaf spring by using a pair of pliers. Step 3. Other types of leaf springs as illustrated above are also used in leaf Spring Coupled Type Watchbands. Step 4. Disconnect the link from its adjoining link. 3.Single Screw Link Type (Tools: 1-mm Screwdriver or Tweezers) Disassembly Step 1. Turn the watch on its side. Firmly grasp the bracelet in the area of the link you wish to remove. Insert the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the slot on the screw head. While applying gentel downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screwdriver counter clockwise to loosen the screw. Continue to turn in a counter clockwise motion until you can feel that the screw is completely free turing. Step 2. Grasp the end of the screw with the tip of a pair of tweezers and remove the screw from the link. Set the screw in a safe place for reassembly. Step 3. Once the screw is removed, the link will come apart. Repeat this for as many links as necessary. If removing an uneven number of links, remove the greater amount of links from the 6:00 side. Assembly Step 1. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. Assemble the link, and turn the bracelet on its side. Insert the screw into the link either with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. The screw will only go into one side of the link. Step 2. With the bracelet still on its side, securely hold the bracelet between your fingers, and place the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the screw slot on the end of the screw. While using gentle downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screw in a clockwise direction until you feel the screw stop and the top of the screw is just below the edge of the edge of the bracelet. Do not apply more than gentle pressure on the screwdriver as it could cause the screwdriver tip to slip off the screw end, which may scratch the side of the bracelet. Step 3. Once the screw is screwed down in the link as fare as it will go, give the screwdriver one final"twist" to securely tighten the screw. Be careful not to use too much force as the screw head could become damaged. 4.Snap Type (Citizen Sizing Tool) Step 1. Remove the link pine in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Grasp the band on either side of the link from which the pin was removed. Apply gentle upward pressure on the side nearest the case, while applying gentle downward pressure on the clasp side of the band. You will feel mechanism disengage. Step 3. While continuing to apply gentle pressure as outlined in the previous step, gently"rock" the band to completely release the mechainism. Step 4. After releasing the mechanism move the clasp side of the bracelet towards the case to dissemble the links. Step 5. Gently pull the links apart. Repeat the procedure for as many links as need removing. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions (Tools: Citizen Blue Pin Pusher Link Joint Remover II or Tweezers) Link Components 1) Split Pipe -Two pieces, one at each end of the pin. Generally one split pipe will remain attached to pin during sizing. 2) Cylinder Link - Two pieces, one at each side of the bracelet link. 3) Link Pin - Connects link, cylinders and split pipes together. Step 1. Note the engraved arrow on the backside of the bracelet showing the direction in which the link pin should be pushed and lay the bracelet in the cradle as shown above. Align the pin of the pin pusher with the link pin, being careful to centre it. Once centreed?, apply slight pressure until you feel the pin begin to move and then turn fixture upright as shown in illustration . This slight pressure will keep the pin pusher in alignment with the link pin while the tool is being turned upright. Step 2. With the fixture standing in the upright position, apply even pressure to the pin pusher until the pin drops out. Step 3. Using the tweezers, set the pin/split pipe assembly and cylinder aside. If the cylinder comes off of the pin, reassemble the cylinder and pin. The split pipe for the link pin at this outside end is still on the pin and dose not need to be removed. To reassemble pin and cylinder, insert pin into the hole of the cylinder so that the split pipe rests in the recess of the cylinder. Set aside for use during reassembly of the bracelet.
