Torque Wrenches are not just tools but precision measuring instruments, which is why they should be looked after.
Here are 3 HTL Tips to help prolong the life and maintain serviceability of your torque wrenches:
Your hand torque wrench should only be used to torque tighten and not break out or loosen.
Whenever possible, only use your torque wrench (hand or hydraulic) up to 70% – 80% of its maximum working range. Beyond this, you should think about changing to a larger wrench which will achieve the desired torque, but much easier.
Always reset your hand torque wrench to the minimum value when not in use.
