How to install a NATO strap on your watch

How to install a NATO strap on your watch

One of the most common requests that we have is an article about how to install a NATO nylon watch strap. First, you will need to remove your current watch strap or watch bracelet before you can install a new NATO strap that you have purchased from LUX. If need be there are special tools known as "spring bar tools" that will help you remove the pins or spring bars that hold your current watch bracelet or watch bands on to the watch case.

Now, that you have removed the watch strap or watch bracelet from the case, make sure that you have re-installed just the spring bars or pins to the watch case. Once that is done take the NATO strap from its packaging. Notice that the strap loops through one of the keepers. Remove the "tongue" of the strap from that keeper.  

The NATO strap's buckle side will be on the 12 o'clock side of the watch. Slide the "tongue" of the strap through the 12 o'clock side of the watch case. The NATO strap should slide into the lugs perfectly and sit in between the spring bars and the watch case itself.

Now, take the NATO strap's "tongue" that remains and slide it through the 6 o'clock side of the watch case. The NATO should slide again inbetween the watch case and the spring bar. Push the watch case up to the strap, in the direction of the 12 o'clock marker.

The loop or keeper that is hanging out the rear of the case of the watch must be attached back to ensure the watch stays in position. Slide the Tongue of the NATO strap through the keeper you originally took it out of.

Again, take a look at the watch and make sure that the buckle side of the NATO strap is on the 12 o'clock side of the watch.

Now it is time to wear the watch. Put the watch and NATO strap on your wrist, run the tongue side through the buckle and adjust it to a comfortable position.

The next picture shows how to insert the tongue into the keepers. Now you have created the ultimate NATO military strap look.  

Enjoy your new NATO strap!
