Leatherman Tread, A Modern Bracelet with Impulsive Toolkit over It
Imagine you are wearing a wrist bracelet which is a hex driver, a screw driver, a box wrench, a carbide glass breaker, box cutter – a multi-tasking tool bracelet with more than two dozens of features. Well, this is not merely a weird imagination now but a reality which has been given life by Leatherman Tool Group and is named as “The Leatherman Tread.”
This revolutionary bracelet comprises many links; each link consists of couple of tools. Undoubtedly, this modern toolkit is not less than a blessing for people and especially for mechanics and those adventurers who are habitual to long tedium journeys. But a wise man considers all aspects-not only favorable ones- as in this case one may enquire for the strength and durability of such a complex machine.
Good news is that Leatherman Tread has been built after consideration of all such concerns. As far as the strength is concerned, each link of the model is coated with metal which makes it sufficiently durable. By the same token, the bracelet has a strong feature of flexibility. That is, to say, the users will be able to adjust it on their wrists according to their choice; slotted fasteners are used for this purpose.
Durability and flexibility do not end the praise worthy characteristics of this bracelet which is being characterized as a mobile toolkit for people on a notice of their fingers’ snap. Diversification is on its way as in this year’s wrist watches will be available with combination of Leatherman Tread and a Swiss made timepiece.
I don’t want to leave you ‘wandering’ about this wonderful tool, especially, if you are interested in ideas generation. So how this idea of Leatherman Tread occurred in the inventor’s mind? The answer is: Because he needed Leatherman tread.
“The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family,” revealed President Ben Rivera. “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 famous proverb “necessity is the mother of invention” was never so true as in this case. Was it?
One more thing which is evident from the statement of president is: Leatherman Tread’s security friendliness. As it will be carried as a fashion product (a fancy bracelet) or a time management tool (a watch), people will not suffer from the harshness of security personnel, unlike the idea generator did.
Dynamic, strongly built and flexible Leatherman Tread seems cost effective too. According to the initial details, bracelet with steel finish will worth $150, while that carbon finished will be sold in $200, and the splendid Tread Watch will cost $500 to those who will buy it after being fascinated by its design.
