No offense taken. I didn't buy it based on your preferences ;-)

To each his own. The Tempo is a serious hunk of metal at 9.6 ounces. My Seiko diver watch is 7 ounces and I rarely wear it because of the weight.

This gshock/tread combo is only 5.5 ounces and fits under my cuff. It has solar charging, atomic time sync, and 29 world time zone settings. It's the perfect travel buddy for me.

Thanks! My first Leatherman. I've carried a tiny SOG for a long time. I also ended up getting a Charge plus TTi with the Tread.

I really just want to vent! I ordered a set of links for my Tread so i could add my Casio watch. I ordered and actually waited 3 months for delivery, all the way to South Africa. Eventually it arrives today, and fitment started. Everything went well only to find out the standard Tread screw does not fit the Chronolink! I had to make another plan and used another screw, but it does not look the same! And it is not as if i can just return it, postage will be more than what they cost. So, to say the least i am pretty pissed!

Further to my initial post, i established that this is actually fakes, sold on ebay. So be careful. Even though the little leaflet inside the box indicates Chronolinks, it is not original.

Hi guys!

Just wanted to see if anyone else has same PROBLEM  with the TREAD.

Hanshakes and high fives started to open it ups easly. Does anyone have same problems? Anyone with solutions?

Do you think the warranty should cover this in?

Have a good one and '' let the tools be with you ''

Sorry for the delayed response guys :facepalm:

Welcome to :MTO: SCUBA :tu:

There are a few that have and use the Tread on here but not much discussion has gone on lately about these :ahhh I don't know much about them myself but seems like contacting Leatherman about your issues would be the best course of action and see what they say :salute: Hope you both have good luck in getting them fixed and let us know how it goes :tu:

Not sure why handshakes and hi fives would cause the screw to loosen  :think:.  Is the tread a real one?  I ask cause there are some really nice fakes out there.  I'd apply some blue thread lock on those screws myself.  That should prevent any loosening yet would still provide you the ability to loosen later.

I bought and returned a Tread Tempo. Unless you are a fan of fat and heavy Invicta watches, I recommend not to buy the Tempo. You are better off with buying a standard Tread, 3rd-party link adapter, and a watch face of choice (preferably with steel casing). Granted, the Tempo has stronger link connection than the 3rd-party link adapter, and has proper fit adjustment. However, the thing is seriously HEAVY. They need to make the watch face out of titanium to justify the $450 price tag.

thx @Poncho
@SCUBA GIGI- i do not quite understand you yet...i had 3 Treads, the black oxide was returned and ...i'm trying to say that i had experience with 3 Treads.
The buckle or lock mechanism, with one ball is designed to open at a specific relatively small amount of force, i believe it is for our own safety, the bracelet will not give the way your wrist/hand/flesh will , if you are caught in a nasty situation.
All the three Treads, if they sit on my wrist and i bend my wrist hard, or with a shock,the Treads will open.
I just clapped my hands hard , a little hard, and it opened, both of them.
Now...if you give a strong man handshake like , it definately will open.
Try to check one in a store  to see how it behaves.

I prefer the tread without a watch. It's heavy enough as is.

My Tread is in its packing and has been for a while.  I liked it well enough and didn't have the situation of it opening.  I also dont have arms the size of those fellas in the video  :rofl:.  The Tread IMO is a neat gadget.

Wow... I used my BO tread for a month and did not looked like that.
How acidic is your sweat? My grandfather had diabetes and his watches would rust-oxydise on his arm, so he went for thick  large leather strap
