The click-type torque wrench is a special type of torque wrench.
The click-type torque wrench in a proper sense is a special type of torque wrench. It is used for setting and adjusting the correct torque in order to prevent using too much power when tightening a screw. Once the preset torque is reached, the wrench „nips off” to prevent using more power on tightening. This variant of the torque wrench is frequently used in the automotive industry where tightening of wheel bolts requires a certain amount of torque. Aluminium rims for example require a particular amount of torque to ensure driving safety.
Snap-on offers a wide range of torque wrenches. In addition to classic wrenches, electronic torque wrenches are available too.
