    Where can I find an extra rubber strap "loop"?

    One of the rubber strap "loops" on my watch is starting to tear. By loop, I mean the loop of rubber that the strap goes through after passing the buckle to hold the strap down. I wasn't sure what else to call it. Where can I order another one that's vulcanized, and how would I go about making sure the color matches? Thanks.

    Hello Budge. The loops are referred to as 'keepers'. I am not sure what vulcanized means, regardless... from my experience I have found that you have to order a new strap to get the keepers. I have never heard of anyone getting keepers only shipped out to them. Hopefully someone else has and chimes in for you.

    When I needed a keeper for my rubber watch strap on my Luminox, I went to the jewelry store where I've had jewelry repaired before.
    They rummaged thru a junk drawer they have for odds & ends and found one that fit. Gave it to for free!!!
    Might be worth a try.
    Also my local $ stores have had Spiedel bands for a dollar on occasion. Buy the band and get a keeper for a buck!!!!
    Hope this is giving you some shopping ideas,

    Yeah, I'm definitely not spending $400-500 on a new rubber strap just to get the keepers. If the manufacturer won't send me a new one, I'll check my local watch repair facility. Thanks for the tip.
