I just got my small love and it opens easy without any extra force. Depending on what side/position you are looking at; you can either press down on the screw side and pull apart or lift up the part without the screw and pull apart. Just wanted to add this for anyone who’s interested.
I have another question for all of you with small love bracelets. Hope you can chime in.
When the snap mechanism is closed and the screw is locked in lock position, is there a slight movement/click metal sound when you tap the bracelet from both sides or if you try to pull both sides slightly apart when the bracelet is locked? In other words, is it shut/closed tightly or since its a snap lock mechanism there’s some tiny wiggle room when you try slightly to pull it apart or tap it from both sides?
I just got my small love and the closure isn’t super tight, there’s some slight click sound when I do what I described above.
Would appreciate your input on how your loves are. Thank you!
Rest-assured - the slight gap/clicking is normal. I noticed it when I first got mine back in May also, but I read on this forum that others had it also so I stopped concerning myself about it.
When I read your post, I pressed mine together and heard it. This morning I pressed it and it’s not there so I pull on it slightly and it’s there. Just leave it alone and don’t worry about it - I find it a bit reassuring that there’s a bit of movement actually. I see it as less rubbing on the gold.
As for wear, I wear mine 24/7 and really it’s so comfortable I got used to it from the very beginning (sleeping with it, working out with it, etc). I do protect it as much as I can when I can such as a wristband on for doing housework, etc and honestly, I have very few & minimal scratches on it. You can’t really tell unless you inspect it very, very closely. I’d say the most scratches I got on it were within the first 3 months - the adjustment period. However, it still looks really shiny and new.
Also, since day 1 when my husband screwed it in my wrist, not once have we had to tighten it. It’s secure. Another trick is putting tape on the screwdriver I have read to avoid scratches when you have to use it.
I love wearing it! Planning to add a thick one with it next year!
Hope that helps! Enjoy!
