The screws are for display on the strap they are actually just a pin on each strap you can push the pin through with a small flat head screw driver it takes a little while bit fidely. First time I have done it. It took me 20 mins

Removing metal wrist strap casio gw-3000bd


With most watches, use an Exacto knife to compress the pin to remove it. Replacing the pin is more difficult.

Casio gw-500, trying to change the bands, screws keep turning


For G Shock GW500Uthe screws holding the ******** are actually just one pin per strap the screw end is for decoration. To remove just get small headed flat screwdriver and push pin through it is fidely but can be done it took me 10 mins first time. Casio sell straps direct for about 10 pound cheaper than putting into casio dealer .

Where can i get a resin watch strap for a Casio Wv-200U-1AVEF


Most department and discount stores that sell Casio watches will carry a general assortment of replacement bands for those watches. However, your model takes a somewhat specialized band that may not be stocked by these stores. Instead, if you're looking for a local source for a replacement band, you might need to visit a "quick watch repair" kiosk or store in your local shopping mall or visit a jeweler who sells Casio watches. Often, both of these types of businesses keep a more comprehensive selection of authentic Casio bands in stock.

Replacement bands are also available online. For example, just because it was near the top of the Google search results I received, this web site has a wide variety of Casio bands, along with suggestions of the watch models to which they go. I have not ordered from this web site, and I have no affiliation with them (I actually think some of their prices are on the high side), but it's one of many online sources for the watch band you need:

Good luck finding the band you need at a decent price!

I am trying to figure out how to shorten the wrist band on my Casio Edifice EFA-119.


mcdevito75 here, If your Casio has a metal band, you can remove 1--2 links, this takes a special tool called a link remover, best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area. If your Casio has a strap, the buckle may be able to move up the strap to fit your wrist, if so, move the buckle up the strap to fit your wrist and cut offf the exccess strap. If not, you"ll have to replace the entire strap. Hope this helps.

The strap is broken on casio watch


I had exactly the same problem with exactly the same model watch, and it happened to me twice. The AQ-160 is the important part of the model number as far as replacement parts are concerned. The first time, I took it to the shop where I bought the watch, and they replaced the band, but it cost me $50. The second time, I looked up the Web for the master agent for Casio in Australia, and they said I could buy the end piece, not the whole band, for $6. I found I could replace it quite easily myself by using a drawing pin to remove the spring pin that holds it together. A bit fiddly to reassemble but not too bad. In fact, I didn't wait for the new part to arrive, just used the unbroken end of the old band. So now I have a repaired band plus the old band and a new end piece, in case it ever happens again.

I really like this watch, but it is a pity the bands are so weak.

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.

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.
