    Do Nylon Straps Bend Springbars?




    I want to put one on my Orient Mako. My stock bracelet bends out the springbars withing a few days after swapping them in.

    Do the nylon straps that go over the springbars bend them?

    Thanks.

    None of my 20mm springbars have become bent due to NATO strap use, but it sounds like you might want to buy some more high quality or fatter springbars if it happens so regularly...

    Depends on how tight you wear your strap??, if you wrench your strap down tight, eventually you can bend spring bars, but there cheap and easily replaced IF they get bent..

    It's never been a problem for me.
