Why Use Quick Release Bands?
Why are Quick Release Bands Becoming Popular?
Watches and watch bands have a long history of using traditional speed pins to secure the strap into place. These pins have a built-in spring which requires a tool to push down on the pin at the grooved tips such that the bands will become unattached from the watch face. As one might imagine, this proves rather troublesome without the appropriate watch tool or even worse, if the spring bar has become difficult to push down! Advances in technology for the watch community prompted a new design for something more economical and user-friendly that could be embraced by watch enthusiasts everywhere.
Most of our watch bands have built-in quick release pins for a speedy attachment to your timepiece. These tiny steel bars have knobs offering more control, allowing watch owners the ease of pulling back on a steel knob, which in turn pulls the spring pin ends out of the watch face. This is a far easier process for changing watch bands! A process that only has to take a few short seconds! And on top of this, built-in quick release pins imply no more searching for accessories that are compatible with YOUR watch bands… because the strap has that technology!

After turning your strap upside down, slide your flat end in until it touches the Traditional spring pin.
Push the pin away from the lug, activating the spring inside the pin to remove the strap.
Repeat on another end for full removal!
