    Aquaracer WAP2010 Clasp repair question

    Hi all, first post. Looking for some information on clasp repair on my WAP2010 Aquaracer.

    Recently was out with the kids sledding and my band got caught on the sled when I gave them a push. The clasp now does not stay shut, it just pops open with the slightest bit of force while on my wrist.

    I am going to attach some pictures of the pinch clasps and wondering do I need a new spring bar (measured at 15.7mm open) or are the ball clasps (wrong term) bent?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tried bending the clasp curved section a little bit so that it locates better on the 2 mushroom pins that retain it?

    The little mushroom shaped pieces need to be completely straight. Not bent at all.

    Thanks for the tips on the pins. I bent them back and the clasp works correctly now.

    @jamesbiz, couple of other random questions for you.

    1. If I wanted to buy new mushroom pieces, do these come out or do I have to buy a whole new assembly?
    2. What watch winder do you recommend for automatics?
    3. Looking to do a deep cleaning of the watch bracelet, do you recommend an ultrasonic? If so, which one and what cleaning products do you use?

    Thanks,
