Thread: Wristband problem

  1. #1

    Default Wristband problem

    I accidently slipped the plastic down wristband and it's tightened so small that I can't my get hand through. The band works only one-way and won't loosen up, how do I go about fixing this? Does anyone know if I need to go to the off site box office/will call and if so will I be charged $25?

    i think you're gonna have to figure out a way to get your wrist through it. it clearly says to not tamper with it... doing so will void it.

    There was a thread where people said they got it fixed for free when they got there. But otherwise, $25 sounds about right.

    It's looking like I'll have to take it to the off-site location and pay the $25. I was stressing, but your input put me a little more at ease. Thanks.

    Don't stress, I screwed mine up last year and they fixed it at customer service while we queued for car camping...no charge.

    My dumbass friend put on my wristband on his left hand, so I had to cut if off. He wouldn't even go to Coachella this year.

    Iis this wristband still valid? Can I still pay for a replacement on site for 25 bucks?

    He should HAVE left it on because last year it ended up not really mattering, and now he's left with a sketchy cut off wristband.

    Why is anyone even taking their wristband out of the box after initially looking at it before the event? So stupid.
