Need to replace a Watch Band Pin , here are the specs...

Wife got this band for her Apple Watch. She likes it. Would return it to Amazon, but daughter bought it on her Amazon prime, and hasn't given me a return label, so I am looking into fixing it.

I searched for Watch Band Pins, and see a lot of choices. By my measuring with a Ruler, it appears to be 1.5 CM which works out to be 15 mm. So that would be length. Now for width I would think that anything might work, But I see some 0.5 and others 0.8 if I remember correctly.

Also see a box of various sizes for around $9 on Amazon..

What would you do, just find ones that are 15mm and some diameter, that is small and has a good review?

Here is measurement of location where PIN was located.



Here is a side view of where the pin needs to go

I would head to a local jeweler. As long as their charge would be $10 or less, I'd buy it from them. Easy peasy AND, you'd be supporting a LOCAL business. boink smiley

After you figure that out, your keyboard needs a good cleaning. barf smiley

Jeez , last time it was dirty nails

Drove a little further to a harbor freight that was not the closet and got their 100+ set with tool for $4.99

Will wipe my MacBook keyboard with microfiber in am

At least my dirty finger nails weren’t in the picture.

And success, the 15 size was perfect. Had to spread the hole the pin was inserted but then placing one side in, and hold pressure on the work I was doing on the other, and using the tool, to help press the spring on the last side, and it slipped into position.

Success $4.99 + Tax
