    Generic rubber keepers

    For those of us with smaller wrists, i took a leap to see if I could solve the "shark fin" problem. Got these from China for about $1.25 free shipping each in 22 & 24mm. They slid right over the clasp and original keeper and sit at the top of the band keeping the tail from popping out. The company works well. You pay and the money is put in escrow until you get your items and approved satisfaction. I ordered these and several T-Shirts. Had one issue and was refunded in 2 days after opening a dispute and didn't have to return the shirt. WUS doesn't like the link for some reason (the filter blocks part of the link) search band keeper Ali express and it will show up. So far so good.

    Re: Generic rubber keepers

    it was that thread that lead me on the search, and i didnt feel like paying $4-$22 each for a keeper and O-rings just dont do it for me aesthetically.

    added a tool, to the tool watch, as to not look like a tool, wearing a tool watch incorrectly.

    Just slide some heat shrink tube over the band, put the watch on, shrink the tube around the end, and never take the watch off again. Problem solved.
    Encourage someone. The world has enough critics.

    Re: Generic rubber keepers

    Steelerswit, are they silicon or rubber? That looks to be a better "extra keeper" than O-Ring from home depot. :)

    Do you slide around though?
