Use super glue to fix the extra bit in it glues rubber really well.

Rubber is one of those things that isn't easy to stretch permanently. (funny that really)

heating rubber makes it shrink.

HOWEVER many bracelets that look rubbery are actually soft plastics and may respond to gentle heating and stretching over a suitable shape.

Worth a try although be prepared to ruin one for the experiment

Thanx Burf. I was kind of thinking along those lines as well, but then I thought there may be a way to heat them & stretch them as well. I have 3 of them so maybe I'll splice them & lace them together to make 1 wide one.

Splice in another piece, or cut and add a piece of cord or a buckle or trinket that will add some length to the bracelet.
