    How to loosen up the keeper on strap frogman gwf/gf1000 series

    Hi guys, does anyone knows how to loosen up the keeper on strap frogman gwf1000 series? I have an idea to exchange the default keeper on frogman with the carbon fiber keeper from another gshock

    Unfortunately i dont know how to do it properly. Usually i loose up the buckle first, on another gshock is easy because i just use some paperclip to unlock the buckle. On the buckle frogman strap seems i cant do with the same way because its look like the buckle sit tigh and solid. I cant see the pin that i can push from the outside just like the buckle on the other gshock series.

    The 1000 series buckles are a bit different from the usual springbar mechanism that holds most other buckles. You'll need to expand them outwards to get the buckle off.

    I hear that using taped pliers works...

    Woah, in afraid i will break the buckle itself, or maybe it cant be back like the way it came from factory.

    Maybe i just try to push the keeper manually over the buckle use some the butter so it will be slip on easily.
