Using a Torque Wrench

To use a click-type torque wrench, you must first know how much torque you wish to apply to your nut or bolt. Add your 3/8" or your 1/2" socket, depending on the size of your nut or bolt, on the end of your wrench. Adjust the torque level at the bottom of your wrench by loosening the end dial of the lever to allow the handle to twist to the desired amount of torque. Once your torque is set, begin to slowly tighten the nut or bolt until your wrench makes a clicking sound to signify you have reached the chosen torque. After you're finished, apply the same amount to all surrounding nuts or bolts. This will build the correct tension all the way around your object for the safest results. To use the reverse feature, move the small switch on the head of the wrench to the left or right to change directions.

You sent it in a box large enough for my whole tool box. What a waste!



by:

Total quality and extremely accurate and easy to adjust. My old one went right to the recycler after I put this one to work, primarily checking my tire dealer torques and my four wheel travel trailer lugs on a regular basis. I have run two Suburbans a total of 680,000 miles so maintenance checks are mandatory and I expect this tool will be riding along for many more.



by:

Worked great and easy to use



by:

This review is relevant to my purchase of this tool to aid in correctly solo-installing a Draw-Tite hitch on my new Mazda CX-5, with the wheels on the ground. If you're unfamiliar with torquing, then you would be surprised at how much force is required to set the mounting nuts on the cone washers to 75 ft-lbs. It would have been pure guesswork and nearly impossible to get that torque with a standard ratchet wrench. Even with the long lever arm of this wrench, you need to apply a solid 50 pounds of force from an awkward position under the vehicle. Hearing the solid "CLICK" at the set-point gave me confidence that I'd done it right.
The scale is a bit hard to read and doesn't line up exactly, so I knocked off 1 star.



by:

Multi-drive size torque wrench was exactly the tool that I needed to install a suspension enhancement kit on my truck. Tool came in a nice package that protected it well during shipment. Worked great right out of the box.



by:

Torque wrench is well made and gets the job done. I use the wrench for torquing the lug nuts on our RV to 120 PSI. In the past I quessed at the correct torque.



by:

Well made torque wrench. Feels solid. Used it to install a new hitch on my 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Rubicon. Handled the job well for 75lbs torque. Price feels right compared to similar ones elsewhere



by:

I needed a torque wrench to properly put tension on my wheels/rims. This is a very sturdy wrench that was easy to use. This will do the job!



by:

Tork wrench worked great installing my new running boards.



by:

Worked perfectly to torque bolts to 76 pounds/foot while installing my draw-tire class III on my Honda Odyssey. The right tools make the job a lot easier.



by:

It's a torque wrench...it works fine.



by:

Awesome tool to keep my tire lugs properly torqued.



by:

Tried to use it at lower tension and could clearly hear a "click" telling me when to stop. At 86 foot-lbs that were recommended for my specific application, I could not hear a thing. I was afraid to apply too much force and just stopped as I was already using weight of my body.



by:

Great service to find the right part coupled with good instructions to install it!



by:

The torque wrench performed as expected and delivered when expected.



by:

Love the product and service. Recieved as shown. Use it often, before I travel. Works great.

Still use them every trip, love them



by:

Works as it should and good quality. Good instructions in the box on how to use with conversion charts.



by:

Well constructed with a long handle for leverage.



by:

Not good markings. Hard to read.



by:

It's been a year and everything is still working properly.
Parts seem to be high quality.
Thanks



by:

I have not used it yet, but I needed to have it for when I shall need it. So far, I am happy with the quality I see and the heft of the tool.



by:

Although I have not used it yet , I’m sure that it will perform admirably .



by:

It look like a excellent tool I have not had the opportunity to use it yet because I’m waiting on other parts to come in



by:

Recommended tool. Glad to have it. Takes out any guesswork.



by:

Excellent descriptions and photos of all items online, as well as very detailed videos on how to correctly use the products I ordered.

  • Torque Settings for Lug Nuts on Utility Trailer
    Attached is a torque spec sheet for various lug nut types and sizes for different wheel types and sizes and stud sizes. We have a 7/16" size and a 5/8" size on the list for studs so you just need to verify your stud size and then use the chart to determine the rest. If you don't already have a torque wrench the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench # ALL944001 is a great option.

  • Are Wheel Bolts and Lug Nuts Torqued to the Same Specs
    Yes. Wheel bolts should be torqued to the same specs as their lug nut counterparts of the same size. If you don't have a torque wrench already, the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench - 3/8" and 1/2" - 10 to 150 ft-lb # ALL944001 would be a good pickup.

  • Torque Settings For Wheel Lug Nuts For Boat Trailer And utility Trailer
    I have attached a chart you can check out that describes the torque needed per wheel size, wheel stud size and material. For an 8-inch wheel with a 1/2-inch wheel stud the torque is 75 to 86 ft-lbs. For a 15 inch steel wheel with 1/2 inch wheel studs the torque is 90 to 120 ft-lbs and if you have an aluminum wheel the torque needed is 90 to 100 ft-lbs. If you do not have a torque wrench I recommend the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench, part # ALL944001. This has 3/8 and 1/2 inch...

  • Installing a Trailer Hitch Receiver to Proper Manufacturer Torque Specifications
    There really isn't a way to torque your bolts to specs without using a torque wrench. Not using this will void your warranty because it wasn't installed properly. I recommend getting the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench - 3/8" and 1/2" - 10 to 150 ft-lb # ALL944001 or the Powerbuilt Digital Torque Adapter - 1/2" Drive # ALL940962 to convert your traditional ratchet into a torque wrench.
