I bought this for torquing down my head gasket, worked great(70 ftlbs), its also good for lug nuts. these clicker torque wrenches are designed to work best in the middle of its range and since this from 10-150 its best right around 80 ft pounds. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WRENCH TO USE AROUND 25FT LBS OR LESS YOU SHOULD GET A DIFFERENT SMALLER ONE, because you may not hear it click. also after tightening the knob on the wrench it can still move by a little like 5lbs or so so just dont twist the knob when toqueing. it doesnt feel the most sturdy so dont drop it or bang it.

Wrench worked as described, but when you are trying to torque bolts on a car with specific ratings, you need something accurate. My biggest problem with this wrench is that after setting the torque rating, it moves around while you are trying to tighten the bolt to that setting. Example: While trying to torque a bolt to 90, the handle wouldn't properly lock it place and the setting would slip to 80 or 85.

    Comments about Autocraft 1/2" Drive Click Torque Wrench:

    Got the job done. Always wanted a Torque Wrench, but most are too expensive. I bought this as a part of a valve cover regasketing job. However, for the job I really needed one with Inch Lbs. (the 3/8" drive). Easily converted this one to Ft. Lbs. via the internet & made use. Dial setting is a little tricky to grasp at first, but once done it works. And the small tick & slip of the handle is a very subtle way to tell you when you've reached the torque set - so ratchet carefully!

    Comments about Autocraft 1/2" Drive Click Torque Wrench:

    Bought aftermarket wheels and bought this on the way home to ensure lugs are torqued to factory specs . After installing 22" rims and tires , this was this best accessory besides tire shine for aftermarket wheels. Set to 100 ft lbs of. Torque. Lock the nut on the bottom and start torquing away. Bought specifically for my wheels and keep in my car but have used it periodically at work( cnc machinist) works well for the price. I ORDER MINES ONLINE WITH COUPON CODE MAKING THIS EVEN A BETTER BUY( pick up in store)

          I bought these to put on new brakes and torque my lug nuts on my tires properly. It worked great and it was nice to have the piece of mind that everything was tightened to the proper specifications.

            The instructions were a little vague to me at first but after I understood what they meant it was easy to set up. It clicks like its suppose to when the torque reaches the dialed in number.

                    Comments about Autocraft 1/2" Drive Click Torque Wrench:

                    I use this torque wrench to torque the wheels on my cars and friends cars that I work on.

                    I was able to get the wrench in tight spaces to tighten replaced wheel bearings, brake mount and sliding caliper bolts to factory torque specifications.

                    It gives a nice peace of mind to know you have bolts tightened to exact specifications and keeps you from breaking bolts and snapping heads.

                    Some people say they have problems with the wrench handle changing the torque value while they are torquing a bolt, but I've never had that problem; there is a lock on the wrench to prevent that. I don't know if I've just had luck or if they are using it wrong.

                    Sometimes it is hard to get this wrench into tight spaces.

                        Hi Chad, when this Autocraft 1/2" Drive Click Torque Wrench - part# AC68 reaches the desired ft lbs it gives out a click. Setting of the desired torque is easily accomplished by rotating the micrometer-style adjustment knob.
