The TruTorque has a comfortable and durable handle constructed using a base material for strength overlaid with a soft- feel grip for comfort and slip resistance which means that it is safe and easy to hold. It just feels right and well balanced. The handle including lens are chemical resistant which means that they will not be adversely affected by common substances found in engineering and automotive environments. The TruTorque has an accuracy of +/- 3% which means that it has a tolerance exceeding all international standards. Supplied complete with its own traceable calibration certificate in accordance with BS ISO 6789:2003 and unique to the serial number laser etched on to the instrument. The easy to read primary dual scale means that the operator can set the desired torque in either N.m or lbf.ft. An additional micrometer N.m scale adjustment to set the required torque precisely. The adjustment up and down the scale can be achieved with minimal effort as the entire scale can be traversed in approximately ten complete turns. The TruTorque incorporates an adjustment lock which means that there can not be accidental adjustment once the required torque setting has been locked in. The reversible ratchet and a 5 degree engagement angle means much easier positioning of the wrench in the tight confines of engine compartments and machines. Push through ratchet provides torque control in both the clockwise and anticlockwise direction.
