Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice item Bought this tool as a general use item, wheel nuts and the like, after finding that a local tyre company had not even done wheel nuts up never mind at the correct torque! Wont be using them again. Have since used it to ensure correct torque when replacing lower front control arm bushes and anti roll bar bushes. It is strong, appears to be accurate and has a loud click to indicate torque reached and the extra bits and plastic case make it a no brainer for the cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this torque wrench! I bought this torque wrench to carry out a job on my motorbike. I needed only to apply 27.12Nm to the screws that needed to be tightened. I set the torque wrench to that desired setting (it is actually the very first setting so you can't go wrong) and proceeded to tighten some screws on my bike. The torque wrench failed to 'Click' after a number of turns and I became alarmed that the screws were being over tightened and the thread in the engine casing would be damaged. So I stopped tightening any further as I was rapidly loosing faith in the tool. I decided to test the accuracy of the 27.12 Nm setting by testing it on my Vauxhall car's wheel nuts (manufacturer states torque setting is 110 Nm). As soon as I started to tighten the wheel nuts the torque wrench should have 'clicked' to indicate that 27.12Nm had been attained. IT DID NOT CLICK DESPITE MY PUTTING VERY HIGH EFFORT /PRESSURE ON THE WRENCH (well beyond 27.12Nm). I would estimate I exerted a force of probably somewhere about 100NM before it finally clicked! Read that again carefully...a torque setting of 27Nm did not respond (click) until a torque of about 100Nm was reached! I know the difference between 27 Nm and 100Nm! I know how much force I had to apply to remove the screws in the first place (these screws were factory fitted to the manufacturers torque settings) and I also know how much effort/force is used to tighten wheel nuts. I have tightened enough over the years. I needed to exert more or less the same high force that I would normally exert when tightening a wheel nut by hand before this torque wrench finally decided to 'click', although it was actually set to 'click' at 27Nm. I am not sure at this stage if I have caused any damage to the threads in the casing of the motorbike engine. I intend to take my bike to a garage and have it inspected for damage. If there is damage I intend to have the torque wrench examined/tested and if found to be faulty I will litigate. Do not purchase this piece of junk torque wrench as it is highly unreliable and could leave you with a hefty repair bill. I realise now that you get what you pay for and you cannot always rely on the positive reviews left by others. This useless wrench doesn't even come with a calibration certificate. ScrewFix, you should be ashamed of yourself for selling this tool!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as described at all! DO NOT BUY IF YOU NEED A REVERSABLE TORQUE WRENCH!! I got one of there a few months ago to make sure I didn't over righted any bolts, it's described as reversible. Someone who worked for screwfix also confirmed in the Q&A that it could righted a reverse threaded bolt to a specified torque. This is wrong and I just trashed a very expensive part because it does not work in reverse.

Can it tighten a left hand threaded bolt to a set load?

Asked by: Bonkingbob
Hello Bonkingbob. No, unfortunately the torque feature only works on right handed (clockwise) threaded bolts/Nuts” Hope that helps. Thank you for using Q&A. MH

I have a bolt with a torque setting of 13Nm what does that equate to on the wrench please

Asked by: 666666
Helloo 666666. The torque wrench you are looking at is not suitable for your needs as you are looking for 13Nm and this Torque wrench range is 20-150lb/ft. 28-210Nm. You could consider this product Laser ¼" Precision torque wrench for use in low torque situations. 5-25Nm range, torque wrench (29953). Thank you for using Q&A.
