    Rubber U1 Strap

    Some boffo with tiny bony wrists(lol) cut the rubber U1 strap a bit short. Can I heat the strap in hot water and stretch it out, cooling in in cold water to take a set? Or any other suggestions? I don't need a lot extra and $80 is a ..... for a piece of rubber.

    Thanks

    No, it cannot be stretched. I did the same, cut one section too much. You choose, $ 80 or white fingers/hand!
    Unless of course you buy a cheaper, non-Sinn strap!

    Thanks and I think I will pass on the white fingers as after a while they might fall off!

    After market is difficult as it won't fit nice and snug against the case. So I will just have to get the Sinn rubber and size it very, very carefully.

    Thanks
