Calibrated to an accuracy of +/- 4%, the TEKTON 1/2 in. Drive Click Torque Wrench lets you work with confidence, eliminating guessing and the common tendency to overtighten fasteners. Correctly tightening fasteners to a vehicle or equipment manufacturer's torque specifications ensures parts are properly secured without being damaged. Simple and easy to use, this wrench has a reversible ratcheting head that drives fasteners in both directions and measures torque in the clockwise direction. To measure torque, set the desired value on the handle scale (foot pounds or Newton meters) and begin tightening the fastener. When the preset torque value is reached, a reliable mechanical operation inside the handle produces a click you can hear and feel, alerting you to stop applying force. Built for consistent performance and years of dependable service, the mechanical design doesn't need batteries, and the all-steel construction has no plastic parts to break or wear out.

IMPORTANT: This wrench is shipped pre-calibrated and ready to use. To help maintain calibration, store at its lowest setting of 10 ft.-lb./13.6 Nm when not in use. Be sure to read and understand the operator's manual, including all safety information, before first use.

I just got mine yesterday and honestly I’m a bit disappointed the way it looks, I posted a few photos of the product and the two screws were over torque from what it looks like (is that normal?). The handle got scratches all over it and a small chip and feels sharp enough to cut me. I do not usually post bad review but I was let down on this one, I was hoping to get more stuff from tekton but I surely learn my lesson about tools over the internet. I will keep it though because I don’t like to waste my time sending it back.

Excellent tire lug nut torque wrench

I got this wrench for torquing tire lug nuts to the proper OEM torque. This wrench is a little over 18 inches long and provides plenty of length to easily torque tire lug nuts. It is a great range for this application on normal-sized vehicles. It is a righty-tighty torque wrench and works great for what I bought it for. As others have mentioned, some bike parts are opposite of standard threading so a different torque wrench may be required for that if you want it to work out of the box.

I bought this Torque Wrench twice and here is why.

I want to start of by mentioning that I’m going to trade school for automotive and most of our hands on comes from actual “volunteers” who let us fix the problems they have. Due to that, the tools we have have to be reliable and accurate.

Great Torque Wrench for DIY’er Auto Guy or Gal

Very impressed !! Doing a lot of auto work. Just did brakes and did nto want to guess if I got my brake caliper bolts back to somewhat near the correct torque. I got the 1/2 inch wrench and I could get in and at my brake calipers. Completely read the instructions, r,ember do not put it away tightened and before you try torquing a bolt, do what the instructions say and practice. I put a nut and bolt thru a hole in my metal shelving tightened it a bit by hand then slowly tightened until I felt the “suddle click” the instructions referred to. I didn’t take long swings on it you should tighten slowly especially as you go more because there is no auto stop or clutch break, but it was easy enough to stop right away when I felt the click. As it other reviews it has both ft-lbs (which is really lbs-ft) and newton – meter scales. Its pretty big wrench, a giant breaker bar but don’t use it as one. As a practice I just use this to torque, not to tighten. I did use it once to help break a nut loose but wont make a practice out of it. I compared it to one in the big box store, their 1/2 torque wrench was more than 2x cost and was far bigger and remember I said this was huge. This may not be top of the line but it is very well constructed, sturdy and very reliable and above all extremely attractive price point. I’m very happy with it and it comes with a super sturdy heavy duty case, you can drop stuff on the case and your wrench will be fine. But really don’t do that. Also use it for torquing my tires to correct ft-lbs, even if you don’t do brakes its worth it for that. Don’t tighten lug nuts with a breaker bar or large ratchet. They will all be uneven and you will warp your rotor and your brakes will eventually pulsate. the average specification on rotor runout is about 3 mil. So you really need this for your tires.

Good torque wrench for the money

In order to gauge the accuracy of this torque wrench I tested it with an AC/Delco Digital Torque Adapter and compared it with a Snap-on I already owned. The AC/Delco unit was certified to be within 0.3% of actual torque. The Tekton wrench did not come with a certification as mentioned by some, but only had a sticker stating it was “certified.” Straight out of the box, the Tekton was wildly inaccurate, but after exercising it a bit, it measured on the outside range of the +/- 4% specification. It generally applied about two to five percent too much torque for the setting, rarely applying too little torque. After using it a while, my observation is that it should be exercised at least five times at 50% of max torque before torquing anything. If it has been sitting overnight, exercise it again. You just have to know this should be done with click type wrenches since it is not mentioned in the operator’s manual. Compared to the Snap-on wrench, I would say the Snap-on supplied more accurate and consistent results, without the need for exercising it as frequently. Of course, the Snap-on cost about 10 times as much as the Tekton. For the money, I would say it is a pretty good wrench as long as you remember to exercise it before using it each day. Don’t expect the spit and polish of a Snap-on. If you want chrome, shine, and a polished finish, you will need to drop a few more dollars.

Excellent value

Got this to replace or supplement my 40 year old “dial” torque wrench. It is definitely nicely made – especially for the price. Looks and feels solid and is very well finished. tested it today up to 80 ft-lbs and the break-over point compared favorably with my 40 year old ‘reference’ when torquing wheel lug nuts. (Be sure to read the instructions, as there are two ways to interpret the torque scale lines – if you don’t do it right, you’ll over-torque by 10 ft-lbs !) The only thing that surprised me a little was the ‘torque’ needed in your hand to turn the black setting-ring at the higher settings. Never having had one of these type torque wrenches, I can’t say if it is usual or not. But in any case, it will not be a problem. If I’m strong enough to work on the car, then I can handle it 🙂

Better than I expected

I didn’t want to risk my vehicle’s safety with a sketchy torque stick from a store that sells freight from a harbor, so I bought this one.

Good for the money

I used it extensively since it arrived (on time and well packaged), and it seems to be fairly consistent with the torque. One complaint is that my unit has a pretty loose direction switch, so if you banged the wrench it would sometimes switch to the other position sometimes. doesn’t affect use so far…
