A spring bar watch tool is specially designed to allow easy removal and insertion of a watch spring bar. Place the watch into a stand or holder which keeps the watch face stable. Place the notched portion of the tool onto the lip on the bar and depress.

The bars want to spring once released so use care and beware. Once set free, watch spring bars are hard to find.
