How to Adjust a Casio Watch Strap

Updated March 23, 2017

Casio watches have long been a timekeeping device choice for thousands of people throughout the world. Producing both analogue and digital affordable and stylish watches, Casio is also constantly updating its range, introducing watches with new features. While the watches with buckle straps are easily adjusted by repositioning the buckle pin in the strap, watches with metal bands require a little more concentration to attain the correct fit by removing links from the band.

Detach the watch clasp from the band at the end closest to the top end of the watch face. Do this by inserting the screwdriver head into the hole on the clasp edge and pushing the screwdriver in, causing the pin to be pushed out. Keep the pin in a safe place.

Locate the links with arrows etched on them on the inside of the watch strap. These arrows designate removable links.

Lay the watch on its side. Insert the tip of the screwdriver into one of the removable links' pin holes. Press down firmly to make the pin pop out of the other side. Repeat the process on the other side to remove the link. Do not lose the pins. Repeat the process, removing as many links as you need to make the watch fit your wrist.

Replace the pin you removed in Step 1 back into the retainer at the end of the band. Push the end of the locking pins against the ports on the clasp so that they click back into their original position, connecting the clasp to the band.


When pushing the screwdriver into the pin hole, take care not to let your wrist slip to avoid hurting yourself.
