Leatherman Tread a brilliant idea to have a wearable multi-tool from your pocket to your wrist.
The Leatherman Tread wearable multi-tool that can be worn on the wrist, includes two to three functional tools each, making a total of 25 usable features like box wrenches and screwdrivers.
Is crafted of high strength, corrosion resistant 17-4 stainless steel links.
Leatherman President Ben Rivera, said:
“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.”
When he returned from his trip, Rivera, who began his tenure at Leatherman Tool Group 24 years ago as an engineer, began by wearing a bike chain bracelet to see how it would feel. As his thoughts took shape, he brought his idea to the engineers at Leatherman who helped fast track his plans.
