Video Transcript for Review of Performance Tool Tools - Hand Tools - Shop Tools - PT79FR

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're going to take a look at this half-inch drive, dual scale, click type torque wrench in this nice storage case. Now this is a dual scale torque wrench. On one side, it'll measure adjustments and foot patterns and if you flip around to the other side, it will show Newton meters. It has a nice torque adjusting collar right down here.

Now on the range on the foot pounds, it'll go from 25 up to 250-foot pounds. And on the Newton meters, it'll go from the 44.1 up to a 349.1 Newton meters. We mentioned the locking collar down here. If you just twist it to your right, that'll unlock it and allows you to set your torque. Once you find the torque you need, then you twist that collar back to the left, and it'll lock it into place.

Now, when you do tighten it and when you reach your desired torque setting, you'll hear an audible click, and that'll tell you that you've reached that setting.It does have an internal torque mechanism in it, which is manufactured of high-grade, spring steel. And it is a precision 41-tooth ratchet head. It'll offer precision torque control. And right up here on the head if you turn it the other way, it'll let you loosen it. If you turn it back, it'll let you tighten it.

So that's your directional switch right up there.The size we mentioned on this is a half-inch drive. The tube is a nice chrome plated seamless tube, and the handle on it is a nice ergonomically designed, comfort grip handle. It does come with this nice molded, heavy duty storage case that you can put this in when you're done. And it forms to it, to keep it from bouncing around. Click the close, and you can carry it around without damaging it.Now, one note I do want to mention.

When you do return inaudible 00:01:48 rent or when you are you finished with the job, you do want to return the wrench to the lowest setting after each job. And that's to ensure accuracy and longer life of the wrench.But that should do it for the review on the half-inch drive, dual scale, click tight, torque wrench with the storage case.

  • Torque Spec to Mount Buyers Products Cast Trailer Coupler part # 3370091558
    I spoke with my contact at Buyers Products and they informed me that the the bolts that mount the Buyers Products Cast Trailer Coupler part # 3370091558 should be torqued to 225 ft lbs. The hardware should also be Grade 8. You may already have a torque wrench but if not our part # PT79FR is rated for up to 250 ft lbs and would work great to install this coupler.

  • Is Torque Setting for Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch in Ft/Lbs
    The torque specs for the hardware on the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Ford Super Duty - 25,000 lbs # RP30138-26 is definitely ft/lbs. It sounds like a huge torque because it is - this hitch is rated for up to 25,000 lbs so everything will be torqued pretty tight. If you don't have a torque wrench we have some available like the part # PT79FR that can go up to 250 ft/lbs.

  • Tools Needed To Torque The 14MM Hitch Bolts For the Curt Receiver # C13146 On a 2020 Honda Pilot
    You should always follow the manufacturers instructions for proper torque of the hitch bolts. I have linked a copy of the installation instructions below for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13146 which does list the installation torque as well as tools that are needed for installation. To torque the hitch bolts you will need a 22mm socket, 6" extension, and a Torque Wrench # PT79FR or Torque Wrench Adapter # ALL940962 capable of at least 139 lb-ft of torque.

    I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs item # 989900 for your 2020 BMW X3. This will give you a couple options for height on where your ball should be. This will fit the 2' receiver in your X3's factory tow package. I have also linked an article that will help you measure for trailer hitch drop. We do offer torque wrenches. I recommend the Torque Wrench - Dual Scale - 1/2" Drive - 250 ft/lb item # PT79FR. The torque rating for both the 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch...

  • Recommended Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch For 2019 Honda Pilot Towing 2021 Escape 21'C
    I would be happy to help! Since your 2019 Honda Pilot is limited to 500lbs tongue weight, and 5000lbs trailer weight you will not want to go with the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # EQ37100ET as it is designed for tongue weights between 600-1000lbs. Using this system with tongue weight below 600lbs will cause a very stiff ride, as the trailer will not have enough weight to allow the springs bars to work properly. I recommend...

  • Extended Ball Mounts For a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Towing a 2,300LB Travel Trailer With 2" Ball
    I have a few options for you on your 2020 Jeep Wrangler. A typical ball mount like the Curt # C45036 will have a hitch pin to ball center length of 7-1/2". We do have the Curt Solid 2-Ball Mount # C45002 which is longer with a 8-1/2" length from hitch pin center to ball center. To get longer without having to install a hitch ball you will need to move to a hitch like the B&W # BWTS10035B which is 10-3/8" from hitch pin to ball center. If you experience a lot of sag with your travel trailer...
