Method 1: By using a pin pusher
- Place the watch on the table with the push pins facing up.
- Insert the pin pusher into the hole and push the pin firmly.
- Once you’ve pushed the pin enough, it will pop out. Use pliers to remove it together with the link.
- Repeat the steps until you’ve removed the number of desired links.
Use the pin pusher or spring bar removal tool to push the pin that secures that particular link, following the direction of the printed arrows on the underside of the metal link. You should be able to push the pin 2 or 3mm and then pull it out from the other side using your pair of pliers or by hand.
You can take your watch to any jeweler in your area that can remove links from watch to adjust to your wrist size.
Yes! While Walmart will not remove watch links for you in-store anymore, it does sell watchmaker toolkits that will allow you to remove the links from your watch at home. You can purchase Walmart’s watch repair toolkits in-store and online, and you can buy kits from third parties on the Walmart website, too.
Ensure the arrows shown on the links are pointing down. When removing links, hold one end of the pin pusher against the pin to be removed. Strike the other end of the pin pusher with the metal side of the watch hammer until the pin slides out. It will slide out in the direction of the arrow on the links.
It will generally cost no more than $10 to remove links from a watch, although if you take it to the store you bought it from, they may do it free of charge.
Most watches will have up to three pins that may be removed on each side of the clasp or buckle.
As mentioned, the answer is that it depends on which watch you have. But many watch bracelets have screws for which you need a screwdriver with a size of 1.4-1.8mm. Worth adding is that the vast majority of watch bracelets use T-screws.
