    Holes in G Shock strap

    Hello guys, first post here, recently got a GWM5610 and I have a situation with the strap, what do you guys recommend to make one of the strap holes bigger? The 7th hole feels too tight and the 8th hole too big, I've done this before but the results were messy and ugly as hell so I want to do it as clean as possible. Any inputs??

    the distance between the holes is like what, 4mm? can't be too loose and then too tight, can it? I would buy another strap from those g-5600, g-6900

    Probably not too tight but I've always been very picky with these straps.
    Anyway, I just found this " revolving punch pliers" in home depot, that should do the job.

    Thanks guys

    I believe letting the watch hang just a little loose is actually not that bad, so it doesn't sit like high up on your wrist when your arm is down. But then again, whatever rocks your boat ya noe..? Goodluck in that hole-punching attempt! Hopefully it doesn't look too bad. Do post it up if you succeed and let us take a look! =D

    That's the tool I use for punching extra holes in my Maratac Zulu straps - does the job great. Though in a nylon strap, I always heat the new hole with a Zippo for a few seconds to seal it, wouldn't do that with a plastic one!

    I sure will... Like i said before, I almost always do something with my straps to find my sweet spot, what I'm really trying to do here is make one of the holes a little bigger.

    Thanks again

    Buy a combi bracelet for your 5610, it has removable links and micro adjustment holes on the clasp.

    Just slightly pull the resin strap. Make sure to pull slightly and fit. Repeat until satisfied. Remember also, as in my case, hot and cold environment makes your wrists a little thicker and thinner ever so slightly.
