The required torque is set by a set screw and a graduated scale. The set value can be secured using the lateral clamping screw. When the set torque is reached the grip audibly and palpably releases. The loosening torque is higher than the tightening torque so that the torque handle can be released without any problems.
The internal thread version has a hole in the set screw so that the torque handle can also be used on threaded rods.
Set torque accuracy ± 5%.
Grip and set screw aluminium.
Bush and pin steel 5.8.
