    Help - Reinstalling Back on Casio LTP-1369D-2BV

    I bought this watch for my wife for Christmas 2014. It's pretty much been a disappointment, as the bracelet keeps popping open and then the battery died after only about six months of intermittent war.

    Last weekend I looked into getting her an expansion band for it, and I popped the back off in order to get a look at the battery. It's a simple pry-off back. But now I can't get the back to go back on! I'm afraid to squeeze any tighter as I am afraid of crushing the crystal. I have it oriented correctly with the notch over the "winding" stem.

    Is there a special technique or tool to re-seating the back?

    There ARE tools made for that specific purpose -- I have no idea if this is a "good" one but it's the first one that popped up on a Google search: http://www.amazon.com/Watch-Case-Pre.../dp/B006KZ4MYO

    The technique that I've used successfully in the same on that often works well when installing RAM in computers: "Keep pushing until you're almost CERTAIN that something is going to break if you push any harder, then go ahead and push 10 or 20% harder."

    The two most difficult casebacks I've had to fight with both succumbed to that technique after I put the watch face down on the corner of a kitchen counter, then pushed down with the heel of my hand.

    Thanks! Ordered the tool!

    (My experience is that if you buy the tool, you will never have to use it again.
