Review of the Performance Tool Half Inch Drive Torque Wrench

Today we'll be taking a look at our Performance Tools 1/2 inch Drive Torque Wrench, part number PTW3001C. Now for our at home hitch installs, we're going to need a nice trustworthy torque wrench. This is going to have the ranges from 0-foot pounds of torque all the way up to 150 foot pounds. Now the torque wrench even has a scale on it. If you have your SAE bolts 1 and 2, you're going to torque it down to 5-foot pounds, 9-foot pounds, 15-foot pounds, or 24. It's going to break it all down for you, SAE5, and over here your different bold grades. It will give you your bolt size, and the conversion. Over here, you're going to have your strengthened bolts, which are going to have your 5D and 8G.

Then your torque specifications for those as well. Now, he does have the nice swivel handle on here as well. As you're turning it, you can twist and bend your wrist. It will be fixed, it will not be the ratcheting type, so you will need to pull it off to adjust it, and go back at it again. Now, to get our bolts snug, right before we're going to torque it, we're going to use our performance tools 3/8 inch drive ratchet, part number PT20104. Now we'll go ahead and tighten it down and torque it to specifications since we've already got it ratcheted down and snug. Go ahead and place our Performance Tools torque wrench over the top, and snug it down. You can see that the needle's going to point towards whatever the torque is. For this specifications, we're going to go up to 75 pounds, which you can see it's there now. Now that we have our hitch torqued down, with our Performance Tools torque wrench, we're ready to hit the road with a nice secure hitch on the back of our vehicle.

Note that you can use this torque wrench for any application that you may need a torque wrench for. This torque wrench does even feature a life time warranty. That will do it for our review of the Performance Tools 1/2 inch drive torque wrench, part number PTW3001C.
