    How to adjust this band?

    Hey guys, I would like to apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum for this.
    Anyways, I am having trouble adjusting this band, it isn't your ordinary watch with pins. It has like round balls and it's extremely confusing.
    Thanks for your time

    ALSO: If I can't get it to work, could I just take it to a jeweler and have it done, if so what is the common price?

    Forgot to mention.
    This is really surprising, Casio did not include instructions or anything with the watch regarding to changing the size, and I guarantee you will need to adjust the size, unless you are Rick Ross, the watch is HUGE.

    Ah, these are a piece of cake once you get the first one done. Gonna be tricky to explain, but all you have to do is wedge a small screwdriver in the gap between that round dot ( it's not a ball) and the middle link and then push in the direction of the arrow. To remove one link, you have to do this to two links, to remove two links, you have to do it to three, etc, etc.
    See the arrow? Wedge the screwdriver to the left of it, just behind the dot. That piece with the dot on it is an 'L'-shaped piece of steel. It's all held together by friction and some force will be required. Once you've loosened two of them, you'll see how they fit together and you should be able to take them apart. Don't be scared to think outside the box, here. You may have to jiggle the links from one angle or another to get them apart.
    I hope all that made sense.
    Best of luck.
