    I have found that some pins can be pushed out with the pointy end of a springbar tool but others on the same watch have to be punched out so treat yourself to a set of punches or a pin push tool.

    Any of these are worth the price paid. Basically pay for themselves with the sizing of one bracelet yourself.

    MONSTER is here and sized!! Glad i bought the kit, and it was every bit the PIA they say it is to size, especially making sure those collars are "locked" in. But it fits perfectly!!!

    I honestly don't know how folks can manage to resize a pin and collar bracelet without a selection of tools to go at.

    Re: Seiko Monster bracelet adjustment

    i have a kit, but it was not with me when i received my sumo. i resized my sumo's bracelet with the same pin and collar system using two ballpoint pens with tips small enough to fit in the pin holes but big enough not to slide inside the collars. it was the first time i resized a pin and collar system and i must say i did well. :)

    Re: Seiko Monster bracelet adjustment

    I just did it with a needle and pliers on my 35j5-gc. It's not necessary to buy dedicated tools if you do it only once in your life, but you definitely want to if you have to do it again or get another watch/bracelet. Or simply if you don't want to put your bracelet at risk. It's very hard not to scratch the steel with the "no tool" method.
    By the way, I did rip and scratch a link (the one I was removing), even though I've been extra careful, beware.
