Using a Torque Wrench

To use a click-type torque wrench, you must first know how much torque you wish to apply to your nut or bolt. Add your 3/8" or your 1/2" socket, depending on the size of your nut or bolt, on the end of your wrench. Adjust the torque level at the bottom of your wrench by loosening the end dial of the lever to allow the handle to twist to the desired amount of torque. Once your torque is set, begin to slowly tighten the nut or bolt until your wrench makes a clicking sound to signify you have reached the chosen torque. After you're finished, apply the same amount to all surrounding nuts or bolts. This will build the correct tension all the way around your object for the safest results. To use the reverse feature, move the small switch on the head of the wrench to the left or right to change directions.

Video Transcript for Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench Review

Today, we're going to show you the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench, part number ALL944001. This is our torque wrench right here and it's a dual drive because it has half-inch drive on this side, three-eighths drive on that side. On the three-eighths drive side, we have our switch here, to tighten or loosen. On the three-eighths side, look by the handle, we have our torque values in foot-pounds. Now, on the other side with the half-inch drive, we have our torque values in Newton-meters. Now I'll go ahead and show you how to use it. First, you want to unlock it.

This knob on the back here has indication on the inside, on the end of it, that tells you lock and unlock. Then we're going to twist the handle up to the torque rating we need. You need to look on the graph right here from the 70 that goes down to low line right here and it goes to the edge of the grip. You see these numbers here, once you see the line, that divides it into individual pounds. This will be 70.

When you reach torque value that you want, go ahead and tighten down the knob so you don't spin it and give an incorrect reading. When you do use it and you tighten it down, it'll actually make a loud click. Let's go ahead and try it out now. We use a half-inch side. Any half-inch drive extension and sockets will work with this. Let's go ahead and put it up on our bolt and we'll tighten it up.

You'll hear a click. When you hear a click, let off your pressure. When you go pass it, when you go over-torque the bolt and you defeated the purpose of having a torque wrench to begin with. Go ahead and change your torque value over a smaller bolt and a less torque. We'll need forty-eighths. There's our 40 and our 48.

It's nice not needing an adapter to go from a half-inch down to a three-eighths. You also notice that the 00:02:02 lighter torque value, the lighter the click is as well. When you're done using your torque wrench, it's always a good idea to unlock it and run it back down to it's minimum torque. The minimum torque is going to be 10 lbs. and we'll just lock it up. Also, our maximum torque is actually 150 lbs. It comes with a nice case we can keep it in. That'll finish it for the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench, part number ALL944001.

Tried to use it at lower tension and could clearly hear a "click" telling me when to stop. At 86 foot-lbs that were recommended for my specific application, I could not hear a thing. I was afraid to apply too much force and just stopped as I was already using weight of my body. 578735

This review is relevant to my purchase of this tool to aid in correctly solo-installing a Draw-Tite hitch on my new Mazda CX-5, with the wheels on the ground. If you're unfamiliar with torquing, then you would be surprised at how much force is required to set the mounting nuts on the cone washers to 75 ft-lbs. It would have been pure guesswork and nearly impossible to get that torque with a standard ratchet wrench. Even with the long lever arm of this wrench, you need to apply a solid 50 pounds of force from an awkward position under the vehicle. Hearing the solid "CLICK" at the set-point gave me confidence that I'd done it right. The scale is a bit hard to read and doesn't line up exactly, so I knocked off 1 star. 308330

Review from a similar Powerbuilt Torque Wrench in Tools


Bought this to install a trailer hitch on my 2016 Acura MDX myself. It worked great to make sure the bolts were properly tightened. One suggestion is to make sure you have socket extension rods when using this to install a trailer hitch. 259352

Ask the Experts about this Powerbuilt Tools

  • Installing a Trailer Hitch Receiver to Proper Manufacturer Torque Specifications
    There really isn't a way to torque your bolts to specs without using a torque wrench. Not using this will void your warranty because it wasn't installed properly. I recommend getting the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench - 3/8" and 1/2" - 10 to 150 ft-lb # ALL944001 or the Powerbuilt Digital Torque Adapter - 1/2" Drive # ALL940962 to convert your traditional ratchet into a torque wrench.

  • Torque Settings for Lug Nuts on Utility Trailer
    Attached is a torque spec sheet for various lug nut types and sizes for different wheel types and sizes and stud sizes. We have a 7/16" size and a 5/8" size on the list for studs so you just need to verify your stud size and then use the chart to determine the rest. If you don't already have a torque wrench the Powerbuilt Dual Drive Torque Wrench # ALL944001 is a great option.

  • Torque Spec for 1/2-20 Lug Nuts on 14 Inch Aluminum Boat Trailer Wheels
    For the 1/2 inch lug nut # 12CLN-L and the 14 inch aluminum wheels you will torque each lug nut to 75 to 85 foot pounds. No lubricant is required. However, since this is on a boat trailer and the hub studs are likely raw steel a little lube would help keep corrosion at bay. There isn't a specific product I would recommend since they all do about the same job. If you need a torque wrench we have # ALL944001 which is a basic torque wrench rated from 10 up to 150 foot pounds.
