The Importance of Torque

Torque specifications exist because they are engineered for their application and the application depends on those torque specifications to keep things together.
 
When a bolt is not tightened to the correct torque specifications, the bolt could stretch or rattle itself loose. Imagine yourself driving a car as your wheel bolts slowly loosen itself. Scary isn' it?
 
When a bolt is tightened too tight, you could either snap the bolt within the application (can be a costly mistake) or you could damage the application itself by destroying the treads. For instance, you should never over-torque an aluminum engine block at the risk of stripping your bolt treads.
 
This is why learning how to use a torque wrench is exremely important when working around precisely engineered applications. Shop and buy your new quality torque wrench from our store today and save. Stop paying retail prices and find the best deals today.
