Leatherman Tool Group has released a unique wearable multi-tool equipment, Leatherman Tread bracelet. It’s a 17-4 stainless steel high strength, corrosion resistant bracelet where you can find 2 to 3 functional tools, making a total of 25 usable features such as screwdrivers, wrenches, etc.
Inspired by a trip to Disneyland where Ben Rivera, the president of the company stopped by a security for carrying a knife, but actually it was Skeletool. Since Rivera didn’t want to give it up, the security guards had to escort him to make sure he took it all the way back to his hotel room. Keeping this in mind, Rivera wanted to design something that would enable him to carry his tools and be accepted by security, so, the design process began.
Starting by wearing a bike chain bracelet to test how it would feel, this project began taking shape. Tread bracelet features complex link made of metal injection molded for strength and intensity. As user, you’ll be happy to know that this bracelet has been designed to be fully customizable with slotted fasteners, in this way, you can rearrange links, reduce, or add new ones. Even the clasp is a functional bottle opener. Other possible tools are hex drives, screwdrivers, cutting hook, box wrenches, and a carbide glass breaker. There’s also another version of Tread bracelet that includes a watch, this model will use the bracelet as a strap for Swiss-made timepiece.
