Adjustable torque handles provide tightening with steady torque to prevent overtightening.
Tightening force depends on the operator. Applying too much force causes damage and too little torque causes rattling.
The handle clicks to indicate completed tightening.
Recognizing the desired torque is impossible.
The handle position is adjustable.
Turning the handle in a confined space is difficult.
When the handle is lifted, the teeth disengage from the locking element to adjust the handle position.
1. Loosen the locking screw by inserting a hex. Wrench into the underside of the body.
2. Adjust the torque by turning the torque-adjusting screw in the side of the body.
3. Measure the torque with a torque wrench.
Connect a torque wrench to the Adjustable-Torque Handle. Apply a load in the tightening direction, and fine adjust the depth of torque-adjusting screw to reach the desired torque when the handle clicks.
4. When the desired torque is reached, tighten the locking screw.
Over or under tightening of screw.
Can not tighten at a stable torque.
With the help of sound and touch of a click, the tightening end point is easy to recognize!
"Our mission statement here at Pipeline is to build equipment that R&D and manufacturing teams LOVE to use. One of the ways we do that is by using hardware that operators enjoy interacting with, like these quarter turn fasteners. We’ve used them for years and continue to do so not just because we like them, but because our customers love using them." Read More
