If you’re not confident about removing watch links yourself or don’t have the right tools, you can leave it to the professionals. Watch repair shops, key cutting places, and jewelry stores offer this service for a small fee.
You can take your watch to any jeweler in your area that can remove links from watch to adjust to your wrist size.
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.
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.

How do I make my watch strap loop?
A small elastic hair tie will probably work best in a pinch, followed by a rubber band or rolled up duct tape or a twisty tie from a bread bag. You can also find scrap leather and superglue a new loop.
