    Help adjusting strap! (unusual)

    Hello, My watch just came in today (SNXK90J1) however i could not adjust the strap it came with, I've tried for quite some time now, but am now stumped. I've managed to pushed it out slightly >1mm far to small for my pliers to get a grip on. Anyone have any ideas? and has anyone faced the same problem before? I've included my finger in one of the pictures in order to show how small the scale actual is!
    Thanks!

    Buy a kit of basic watchmaking tools from eBay. It has specific tools to hold the bracelet and to pull and push the pins. I think it goes for @ 15 usd.

    The thing is its not very conventional so im not sure the items in a kit will help? it doesn't use a pin, its one of those key things.

    I've checked on youtube already all of the straps in their videos have a slightly different structure, and their "holes" are much wider, the straps in general are much bigger. their methods dont work on mine.

    Looks like they'll push out if you can bend those tabs up a little with a screwdriver.

    Well it looks like those nodules prevent the pins from sliding out?

    Not clamped tight? Maybe they are just meant to be pushed out then. The hole at the other end of the pin might be designed to insert a tool for leverage.
