I got caught in the trap.Megan and I were at Ikea today and THUNK- my watch fell off.I didn't want to post about my embarrassment because I had just written up that entire post before heading out, but Megan said I had to.Dagnabbit.Def
A NATO style strap is better if you are worried about a pin falling out.even if one pin fails the watch does not fall off.
Good step by step Boss Just make sure you get it right next time
Nice write up. Falling for the trap is inevitable if you've changed out straps. I tend to give quite a few tugs before calling it good and even still have had a strap fall off.
It would be a lot easier to seat properly if I had that notched screwdriver still. It was great for that. I'll have to see if I can dig up a fine screwdriver somewhere and make another one.
Is the 6900 the same strap as yours? If so these do a nato adapter for them...http://www.suppaparts.com/suppagint.phpdelivery is expensive though

I'll dig one out and send you it rather than it collecting dust in the drawer
