  Am no longer a Tread owner. About a year ago I went with a Fitbit and there really was no room to wear the Tread. It helped on some projects here and there, yet it went often unused. A facebook friend, Tracy R. wanted one a while back but the guy is a solo parent and raising two daughters. His advice over time was welcomed, and he would occasionally send me things that I couldn't find here. So, to make his day, I sent my Tread to him last week. :D

Welcome to :MTO: :salute:

That is crazy to see rust on a Tread :o Do you wear it all the time and think that maybe sweat caused this :think:

Interestingly, Leatherman's reaction to my problem: :o

Thank you for contacting Leatherman Tool Group, Inc.
 
We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Tread. Our tread is made out of a 400 series steel which is able to rust without proper cleaning. With the aggressive sweat on the hands and not rinsing an drying every day this could be the cause of the rust. You can clean it with WD-40 and a scotch bride pad. I would recommend rinsing and drying after every use. I hope this is helpful.
 
Best Regards,

Could your tread be a fake one? 
Does your lock had one or two steel balls in it?
See my pictures in "leatherman fakes".

Holy Sh.. I discovered today my Tread is rusting too. The links turn black and get full of tiny dents and holes.  I cleaned it almost every weekend. But with no succes.

Fine Quality Leatherman.....not.
Almost 200 euro's down the drain.

Why the f... selling a wristband thats cannot withstand humans sweat..  Like selling a umbrella for use at dry days only.......

The bitten out metal is something that occurs on the back of a cheap metalic watch as well and is caused by the salt in sweat...

Shouldn't be allowed to happen with a €200 tool.

Leatherman states to clean it everyday? Do they clean their $200 watch everyday?! :rant:

More reports like this will come in, but I'm afraid LM will disregard them as "wrong use:

This is not good.  I sure hope LM covers this under warranty if thats an option for you and more importantly RESOLVES this.

My tread I think is not fake. When I bought it, the boys in China did not sell it yet  ;) I have one ball in the lock.

Very cool mod indeed!  I'd really like to see more of it, maybe get an idea of how you did it?

i'm angry as hell.
 i found something shiny on the carpet, looled like a small roll bearing and it got my attention.
guess what, it was the glass breaker piece from my Tread.
after 1 month, wearing it. i do not know how to proceed further, honestly i would want my money back

Seems to be a common thing, lucky you found the bit.
Clean & stick it back in place with some JB Weld.
