Adjustable torque handles provide tightening with steady torque to prevent overtightening.
Tightening force depends on the operator. Applying too much force causes scratches or damages and lack of tightening causes rattling.
The handle clicks to indicate completed tightening.
Recognizing to reach a 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.
