How to adjust your LEUPP Chain Band with home tools
Need to adjust the length of your new metal chain band? This may seem like a difficult task, but you can do this yourself at home with a few simple tools. Taking the watch to a jeweler or repair place isn't necessary.
Here's what you need:
- any fine-tipped tool. A pushpin 📌 will also do. You will use this to push the pins that hold the links together out of their holes.
- a pair of needle-nosed pliers to help you remove the pins. A sturdy pair of tweezers will also do.
- a small hammer. No hammer? A hairbrush or anything hard for hammering will do.
- Lay the watch on its side on your flat surface. Find the pin holding the last link in place.
- Use a fine-tipped tool to push out the pin holding the wristband link in place. *Make sure the split side of the pin is facing down.
- Use the hammer to drive the tool in further to release the tip of the link pin out and pull the link pin with pliers.
- Repeat the process for the other side of the wristband.
- Detach the clasps using the same method you did for the links.
- Attach the clasp back onto the wrist band. Take one of the pins you removed and re-insert it into the hole. *Make sure the split side of the pin is facing up.
- Use the hammer to gently push the pin back in place. Your watchband is now adjusted and assembled.
