Leatherman Unveils Bracelet That Contains 25 Tools
Posted on February 15, 2015
Leatherman has unveiled a cleverly designed bracelet that contains 25 different tools. The wearable tool is called the Tread bracelet. The tools contained within the bracelet include screwdrivers, wrenches, a bottle opener and more.The Tread bracelet contain 17-4 stainless steel links that contain the tools. These links are also interchangeable. Some of the other tools in the bracelet include a cutting hook and a carbide glass breaker.
Leatherman President Ben Rivera says in a statement, "The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family. I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool. I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room. I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security."
The bracelet will be available in stainless steel and black styles. A version of Tread that includes a watch is also planned.
Update 5-25-16: Tread costs $220. It can be purchased here from Leatherman where an engraving option is also available. It is also available on Amazon.com.
Here is a video that shows the different tools contained within the bracelet. The clasp of the bracelet is where the bottle opener is hidden. The trend these days is wearable gadgets, like smartwatches, but Leatherman may have the digital devices beat with its handy functional tool bracelet. Take a look:
