    Just received my third party link bracelet from freedomclock on ebay. Is there any possible way to remove extra links? I've removed all of the links that are accessible and the bracelet is still a little bit big.

    Technically there aren't any extra links because you removed them all. The remaining links are not removable.

    It seems that the above poster is correct, the links are permanent. Just out of curiosity, how many total links were you able to remove?

    Got a link to this version you bought? I'm interested in buying one.

    I have an Apple OEM link bracelet and had to take it to a jewelry store because with all 8 links out it was still too big. They had to use a special tool to push out the pins inside the links and it creates a hole in the side. It took them 2 weeks to figure this out and cost me close to 100 bucks. I'm not sure it's worth it on a copy of the link bracelet but theoretically if you find an actual jeweler you should be able to get it done.

    Good luck!

    Cheers,
    B

    So I ended up being able to remove more links. All it took was some pliers and force. The pins used in the non-removable links are the same pins used in the removable links.

    It's a shame they don't ship to the UK,

    Does any of my UK friends have a link to the same band?
