In removing a link or more from your watch, all you need for this task is a small screwdriver. So, you don’t necessarily need a link removal tool to do the job. You will also need to work in an area that has bright lights.

Steps in Removing Links from a Watch Band Without a Removal Tool

In subsequent paragraphs, you will be walked through some steps in removing links from your watch without having a link-removal tool at hand. These steps will not take up to 20 minutes if the tutorial is followed correctly.

While working, choose a surface that won’t cause damage on your watch. If you are using a hard surface, then it is necessary you lay down a towel or soft rage on the surface.

Let’s look at how to remove links from a watch without having removal pins. As stated earlier, the household item that will be used is a SCREWDRIVER.

Here are the steps:

  1. Identify where the link pins are located and how many links to be removed
  2. Removing the front pin from one side
  3. Removing the second pin from the other side
  4. Coupling both ends of the watch band back together
  5. Coupling the second pin of the watch band

Identifying where the Link Pins are Located and How Many Links to be Removed

The first step in taking links our of a watch band is first by identifying where the link pins are located, and also by knowing the numbers of links you wish to remove.

Some links on watch bands or watch chains have arrows inscribed on them showing that they can be removed. These links are held together by small sized pins that are removable.

In order to know where these pins are located, hold your watch in a way that the face will be facing the ground. You will find arrows indicating where the pins are located around the sides of the buckle or clasps.

Removing the First Pin from One Side

There are watches that have multiple pins on each side, you will have to remove each of the pins. Having known the number of links you want to remove, locate the pin of the selected links. Here is how to remove the links pin:

  • Use a small head screwdriver for this task
  • Push the screwdriver into the opening
  • Hold the watch in a hand and use your other hand to push the screwdriver into the hole
  • Apply force on the screwdriver in the direction of the arrows on the link 
  • You will notice the pin sliding out or shifting to the other end. Keep doing this until the pin is completely pulled out with your fingers
  • Put the pin in a safe place as you will use it later

Removing the Second pin on the Other Side

Having removed the first pin, you will then remove the second pin on the other side of the link. The process of removing the link is just the same as the first step.

  • Use a small head screwdriver for this task
  • Push the screwdriver into the opening
  • Hold the watch in a hand and use your other hand to push the screwdriver into the hole
  • Apply force on the screwdriver in the direction of the arrows on the link 
  • You will notice the pin sliding out or shifting to the other end. Keep doing this until the pin is completely pulled out with your fingers
  • Put the pin in a safe place as you will use it later

Coupling Both Ends of the Watch Bands Together

This stage requires you couple both ends of the wristwatch back together. I believe you must have removed the number links you wish to remove from your wristwatch by now.

All you need to do is to put both ends of the watch back together. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Hold the watch in a way that makes both ends of the band align together
  • Fasten the ends together until they both interlock
  • Use the pin you removed first to lock the links together

Coupling the Second Pin of the Watch Band

This is the last stage of removing links from your watch. Here is how to do it:

  • Hold both ends of the watch back together]use the second pin you removed to lock the links together
  • Ensure the pin is properly inserted and not on the opposite side
  • Slide the pin into the openings of both links; and ensure it fits well 

Final Thoughts on Removing Links from a Watch

You should not lose the removed links and pins; you might want to use it some other time. So, keep them safe in a bag.
