Hi, i'm from malaysia...one of Casio watch lovers since 1998..just want to ask...Would this trim work at the green strap of Mudman G-9000-3V?
doesnt this process increase risk of cracking ? shortens the cracking period whether subjected to water or not, salty water or not, scratched or not. a micron can turn into a mm and then cm MORE easily?
Thanks Brian. I'm a regular in the Digital forum, but not G-Shock. Just got my first one today (first Casio too actually). First thought was, "I've GOT to trim the strap". I went straight to the G-Shock sub-forum and VOILA!
I will have to wait at least one day though. I think it's sacrilegious to modify your new watch on day one.
Thanks so much for this How-to! Very helpful!

Just wanted to give props for the tutorial!
I trimmed the straps on two Gaussmen after reading this post. I just wanted to let others who have any doubts about the end result; that when I look at the straps now (10 months later) you can't tell the difference between my cut edge verses the factory edge... it blended right in. The trick is using the jeans to smooth out the edge and get a nice finish. The insides of my jeans were coarser so I started there and finished on the outside. It's easier than you think!

Thank you for this strap cutting walk through. Very happy with the results!!
I have no idea what you are referring to by cracking period? These resin straps last for just about ever, even with massive amounts of abuse. A brand new genuine replacement strap from Casio is like $3-4 so who cares, really?
My G-shocks are work horses and not delicate treasures that don't get worn. Wear your g-shock, trim the strap if you want - or don't it's up to you, but trimming it doesn't have ANY side effects that I've noticed. Anyone else???
To be honest, a trimmed strap would probably be better because there is less strap hanging out to continually get bent and cause the cracking that I think you might mean - so trim it :)
Does that help?
