    1. Use scissors to cut ONE break in each of the two small pieces on the sides of plastic preventing the wristband from going out the top hole.
    2. Twist the wristband in a method similar to the one posted on youtube last year and pull the cloth out
    3. Reinsert the wristband out the sides again

    Worked for me this morning

    don't to ANYTHING. when you get there they will charge you $25 to fix it, but if the wristband has been tampered with it could void it. I'd rather pay $25 and go to coachella then take a chance trying to fix it and not be able to go at all.

    This is the best advice. I had something like this happen 2 years ago and was freaking out about it but they are very helpful.

    Is Bumblebee's set going to consist of her just reading coachella facts for 50 mins?
    Is Guedita going to sound more like Karin O or Alice Glass?
    Is MJA going to be the first true EDM headliner?
    So many questions...

    You were given the answer already. Don't mess with it. Take it to the tennis gardens and they will repair it for a 25 dollar fee.

    if its the same as last year, you can twist the part of the band that is sticking out until its so tight that you can slip it past the teeth, then just put it back on. search youtube, there's a video on how to do it.

    Customer service after the shuttles has a wrist band trouble window-there was no line-my kid put it on the left wrist-paid $20 to fix it-as londg as it is registered to you should be no problem. They even re-registered the new one .

    this is all the advice you need. if you mess with it yourself you're risking your entire weekend.

    on that note what's with all the little brother stories this year? more to the point why are people leaving $350 worth of sparkly kid-magnet wristbands out where they can mess with em?

    while this would work to loosen the band there is a good chance it will screw you over. friday weekend 1 they were making sure wristbands weren't too lose upon entry, which means they look at the plastic cuff. if they notice it is modified or broken (pretty obvious if you're spending 8 hours of your day doing nothing but checking that) you stand a good chance of being turned away. good luck on friday

    if you're having trouble with any bit of your wristband/you fucked it up, go to the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens off Miles and Washington St. early tomorrow morning and they'll fix it for you.
