How To Remove Links From Apple Watch Bands

If you’re having trouble trying to remove the links from your Apple Watch band, it’s time to check out our helpful and simple guide.

How To Ensure Your Apple Watch Band Is The Perfect Fit

The first step of ensuring that your Apple Watch band will not only look but feel amazing is to utilise our size guide, to maximise the amount of time you can show off your stunning new band!

Help, How Do I Resize My Apple Watch Band?

If you’ve got a smaller wrist or need a little more security to ensure your Apple Watch band isn’t going anywhere, our DIY resizing tools are the perfect first step to achieving all-day comfort! Our resizing tool comes with every watch band that requires the handy tool to adjust your watch fit, such as our collection of Resin Apple Watch Bands. 
Check out our helpful video here for a step-by-step breakdown of how to resize your Apple Watch bands, by removing band links.

How To Remove The Links On Your Apple Watch

If you watched our video and needed a more broken down guide, to visualise how to adjust the size of your Apple Watch band we’ve got you covered. 

Step 1: Firstly, with the DIY resizing tool, adjust the height of the pin to suit your watch strap.
Step 2: Following the arrows on the band, push the diy tool into the circle mark firmly, for the link you wish to remove from the watch band. Here you’ll see the metal pin from the inside of the watch pushed out (this is a good sign)!
Step 3: Repeat this step for the pin on the other side of the link to remove fully. 
Step 4: Use one of the pins you removed to put the band back together, ensuring that the end of the band is facing the correct way, and the pin is reinserted the way it came out. This guarantees your Apple Watch Band is securely attached.
Step 5: Slide your glamorous Salty Fox band into each side of your Apple Watch face, and store your extra links safely.
Step 6: Now you’re ready to wear your watch!
