Our tips site has dedicated a series of articles to exotic, rarely used tools. But the developers never cease to amaze. They thought that if you collect the most popular tools among home craftsmen into something compact, original. And we got a multitool bracelet, which we will talk about.
If we talk about the original development, then we are talking about the Tread multitool bracelet, created by the Leatherman team, which deals specifically with multi-tools. What it is, you already know from the portal article dedicated to a multipurpose renovator or multitool.
But a multitool bracelet is something different. This is a real bracelet that can be worn on the wrist, each link is a separate instrument. The complete set includes 29 of the most popular and demanded tools, including 7 wrenches for unscrewing nuts, 17 screwdrivers, as well as a cullet, a sling cutter, a device for removing a SIM card, a bottle opener.
Multitool bracelets are always sold in a larger size, not by hand. This allows you to remove segments with tools that are not needed by the DIYer. You can also buy the necessary links.
The advantages of a multitool bracelet are as follows:
- No need to carry tools on a special belt or pocket, everything is literally on your hand.
- Made of steel, very durable. Manufacturer’s warranty – 25 years.
- The bracelet itself looks like a stylish accessory, available in black and silver colors. You can add a watch to the multitool, which makes it even more useful and functional decoration.
What can I say, this is generally a good man’s gift. However, the multitool bracelet has a number of disadvantages:
- The links of the bracelet themselves serve as the handle of the tools. Therefore, it will not be very convenient to use the same screwdriver and wrench because of the small stop lever, it will be difficult to apply the necessary force. It’s just that the screwdriver turns out to be more convenient to use in the end..
- The steel bracelet weighs 168 grams, it is quite weighty, which can lead to discomfort in the hand.
- Such a hard metal object that is worn on your hand can scratch something, for example, a laptop or cause discomfort to a person sitting next to you. At the same time, we note, according to user reviews, the multitool bracelet is ergonomic, the owner’s hand does not scratch and does not cling to clothing.
- The price of the original Tread bracelet is high – about 15 thousand rubles. And it can be even higher if you buy additional links. There are Chinese counterfeits, costing from 2 to 5 thousand rubles. But the quality, of course, will be lower.
It can be stated that the multitool bracelet deserves attention as an interesting novelty and an original gift for a home craftsman. The set of tools will be stored very compactly, no storage space is needed for numerous screwdrivers and keys. But will it be convenient in practice? Big question.
