This Bracelet Lets You Wear Your Toolbox on Your Wrist

Kirstin Fawcett /

Why hold one tool in your hand when you can wear 29 on your wrist? That’s the idea behind the Leatherman Tread, a mini tool belt that masquerades as a trendy chain-link bracelet. Screwdrivers, box wrenches, a bottle opener, a SIM card tool, and other devices nestle into 10 interchangeable links, and can be pulled out at a moment’s notice, in case you need to fix things on the fly.

Leatherman president Ben Rivera created the Tread after his own multi-tool device was confiscated while traveling to Disneyland with his family." I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security,” he explained on the company's blog. The corrosion-resistant Tread has no blades, and it follows all TSA guidelines—meaning it’s safe to take on a plane. (Imagining what you could possibly repair while hovering 30,000 feet above land is another matter entirely.)

The stainless steel bracelet is available in silver or black, and can be purchased online, starting at $165. It might not be as practical as a full-on toolbox, but it definitely serves as the perfect accessory for individuals who love utilitarian gadgets but hate jewelry.
