Then you’re definitely using the wrong size spring bars.

Crap now that I think about it I always reuse the springbars from the silicon strap. That's why it such a pain in the ass

Success for now. I got shouldered 23mm spring bars and used the burgeon pliers. I hope the 23mm's hold. Now I need to get another link, since this is a bit tight.

Truth.

While I generally don’t wear bracelet, I’ve worn some of my Sinns that way and it’s never an issue when using the right bars.
