My dad likes this Torque Wrench a lot. It is pretty easy to use. The Wrench is well made with heavy feel when you hold it. The handle is made with sturdy plastic. Overall I am pleased with this item.
The calibration was off from the day I purchased this. They hide the fact that this product only has a year warranty on the rear bottom of the packaging. They also didn't state on the packaging that it only had only a 90 day calibration warranty. You have to pay to have it calibrated after that. The reason for a torque wrench is for the calibration to be correct. Otherwise it is useless. Don't waste your money.
It's a fine wrench that meets my torque needs. I use it to tighten bolts and nuts to specified values.
I didn't want to get a real cheap wrench as I broke the cheap one I had and did not want to have that happen again. However, for home use, I didn't want to buy an expensive one just to have it only used once in while for automotive work, where, lets face it, doesn't require all that much accuracy for most work. The ratchet mechanism seems OK, although do prefer the "flipper" type. I tested it on an uncalibrated electric torque meter and it seemed close. Again, I'm just looking at ballpark accuracy. The handle click system is nice and the lock is very positive and easy to use. I was disappointed that the "0" on the grip doesn't land on the "0 line" on the handle. It almost seems like the grip was put on 180 degrees off. If I pretend the "5" is the "0" it seems right on. I thought about sending it in for calibration, I think Sears will do it free in the first 30 days?? But, for me, I'll just use it as is. For home use, I'm satisfied.
