Product Description

This simple idea is the best thing I have ever bought...... As someone who loves to buy watches I was finding I always had to get links taken out and at £10 a go it was getting a tad bit dear!! After careful consideration I decided to buy a tool to do the job myself but I was worried about scratching the links,there are so many tools I didn't know which was going to be the best to do the job quickly, efficiently and easily. I came across this little gem and have not looked back, it is such basic premise but it does the job and with no mess or any fiddling

I bought this item because I knew there were a couple of watches changing hands as presents over Christmas and I thought it would be nice to be able to adjust them there and then. The unit did come with instructions, but these were basic and of no real use. So, how did I get on?

At the first attempt I bent the pin remover - so lesson one is probe very gently to get the pin out. When you have it lined up correctly I found it slips out very easily so if you are meeting resistance you have not got it lined up correctly - keep trying until you do and do not try to force it out. I was lucky enough to be able to straighten out the pin remover without breaking it. Incidentally the instructions refer to a replacement for this part so if this happens to you and the pin remover bit breaks, its worth getting on to the seller and enquiring.

I successfully adjusted two watches but I would not describe it as an easy process and each took 10-15 minutes of fiddling around to get the watch lined up correctly in the tool. There is a strange mechanism which moves the bed which the watch sits on backwards and forwards. I am not sure of the use for this. If you were able to move this bed up and down to line up the pin it would actually be useful.

On point which sounds rather obvious, but is not so clear in practice, is make sure you are pushing the pin from the right end. The end to be pushed is usually indented a little into the band whilst the other end stands out more proud to the band and often has a cross thread on it.

You need something to put the pin back in. I think jewellers use a tiny hammer. Do not go and get the hammer from the toolbox though!

I don't understand all the reviews slating this tool as rubbish I received mine yesterday ,which I have to say was a lot quicker than I expected given the time of year.anyway this tool does exactly what it was made for I can only think the people who slated it did not take their time and position the watch bracelet the right way around or square onto the pin,I myself did three watches within about 15 mins and these were both of stainless steel and plastic links and all have been altered perfectly.so anyone wishing to purchase this go right ahead,just double check the direction of the pins before trying to remove them.great tool!!

I bought this watch strap pin extractor to supplement the watch kit i had previously purchased, Rolson Tools 59230 4 Piece Watch Care Kit.

I ordered it from 'Watches2U' and the delivery was fulfilled by 'Amazon', the items RRP was shown as being £19.95 which I find very hard to believe; but the price it was being sold at was £3.89, and this offers excellent value.

The tool itself has a 'bed' section of 50 x 50mm and the handle is 45mm long with a diameter of 20mm; the main body and handle are made out of a lightweight, but suitably strong, plastic with just a few pieces made from metal, these being the pin extractor tool bit and the dial that alters the 'adjustable' section of the bed.

The instructions that come with the tool are at best basic, they do give you just enough information to get started, but the best way to learn is with practice and patience. I would definitely recommend using an old, and if necessary disposable, watch to practice with; however, I would say that from my experience so far all you need to do is be gentle.

Other reviewers on here have suggested that the metal pin extractor tool bit is too soft or of poor construction, I have not found this to be the case; I would say that if you don't use this tool properly and use undue force then it will most likely break, but then again isn't that the case with most tools?!

To put it simply the way in which you use this tool is as follows:

1. You unscrew the handle so that the tool bit leaves enough room for the watch strap to placed on the tool bed.

2. You must make sure that the pin you want to remove is correctly aligned to the tool bit.

I must agree with other reviews. Its not a great device to use. The removal tool pin will easily bend. The easiest way to use it was to unscrew the tool pin & place the strap in the upright slot & just use hand pressure to push out the strap pin. To put the strap pin back in simply do the same but use a hammer to tap the tool pin into the strap pin.
The instructions actualy tell you to use the upright hold & unscrew the tool pin & use in the way I described.
Its a handy tool to have & cost about the same price if not cheaper than having a watch shop adjust the strap for you.

It does the job and its cheap but it could be better.
The 'pusher' pin wobbles about rather a lot making precise control difficult.
Also the pitch of the thread on the rotating knob is rather coarse - again making precise control difficult.
