How many times has it been that we have found ourselves in desperate need of tools, but we had no toolkit in sight. Emergencies happen both in our homes and when we are outside. Most of the times, as if a curse hounds us, these emergencies occur when we have no tools around us. Leatherman tries to rectify this matter with an item that we will always carry with us: a tread multi-tool bracelet.
The idea of the bracelet came to Leatherman President Ben Rivera. While he was with his family at Disneyland, Rivera had to leave behind his Leatherman multi-tool when prompted by the security of the park. As a result, he started thinking of a easier and less obtrusive way of carrying around a multi-tool. The design came when he started wearing a bike chain around his wrist to check how easy something chunky and made of metal would be to wear on a daily basis. From there, coming up with the final design of the Leatherman Tread Bracelet was easy.
Each tread of the bracelet holds a separate tool. The tools are fully functioning and can be removed with ease. Once they had been used, they can be placed back just as easily. Moreover, each bracelet is fully customizable, therefore each owner can choose his or her own preferred set of tools. You can add just about anything from screwdrivers and box wrenches to carbide glass breakers and cutting hooks. The only tool that is not optional is the bottle opener. However, it is doubtfully that anyone will complain considering the fact that is both the bracelet clasp and a much used object in everyday life.
The Leatherman bracelet is expected to reach stores in summer. However, for those who are eager to get their hands on it, one paired with a Swiss watch is available even now. What do you think of this useful concept?
