I got my Tread a few weeks ago, but I’ve only just got round to playing about with the fit.

With two full size links out it’s just too tight to be comfortable, so I’ve taken out one full size link (Link 9 for now) and Link 1.

I’m considering ordering another Link 1 before they sell out and trying it with two full size links removed and the extra Link 1 inserted.

Hi everyone, I have a Leatherman Tempo watch, and one of the recessed screws connecting the Tread bracelet to the watch case fell off.

Does anyone know what is the thread size of the screws used in the Tread?  I want to find a replacement screw.  I emailed info@leatherman.com and they said the product is discontinued, and they can no longer find specifications of the screw.  :-(

  Decided to wear the Tread again to work. Today needed a phillips screwdriver. Normal screwdriver was buried under carpet samples, so off came the Tread to loosen these bolts so I could replace a customer-damaged display board.  ;)

  Still do not understand why Leatherman discontinued so many of their tools. Withed there was a locking clasp option for the Tread to have a can opener to replace the bottle opener, and to use dual ball bearings as opposed to just one.

FYI, the knock off treads from aliexpress cost about 20 bucks and their clasp comes with two ball bearings, one on each side. If you like your tread it's probably worth buying one just for spare parts unless you loaded up from leatherman when they were discontinued.

Not sure eith the angle you could ever get a can opener to replace the bottle opener unless you did a flip out blade design like some of the old GI openers.

Might be worth checking aliexpress, they sell these connectors and with leatherman saying they won't help you I have no problem supporting knockoffs.

I finally found the thread size of the screws used in the Tread and Tempo.  It's #4-48.  Here is a screw that decently substitutes as a recessed screw for the Tempo watch case:  https://www.mcmaster.com/91251A235/

Here's my reddit post about it:  https://www.reddit.com/r/Leatherman/comments/idha6d/comment/kx2p8wo/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web3x&utm_name=web3xcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button
