Im an auto mechanic by trade and this torque wrench definitely meets my expectations for a good quality shop grade/daily use type of tool.

As the instructions state get a feel for the wrench and practice on a fastener or mock up nut or bolt, also helps to break in the tool. Very satisfied with my purchase, and for the price I really don’t think you could find a better bang for the buck. You cant beat the price! Buy it, you wont regret it. Check it out!
Calibrated to an accuracy of +/ 4% in the clockwise direction and +/ 6% in the counterclockwise direction, the TEKTON 1/4 in. Drive Click Torque Wrench lets you work with confidence, eliminating guessing and the common tendency to overtighten fasteners. Correctly tightening fasteners to a manufacturer’s torque specifications ensures parts are properly secured without being damaged. Simple and easy to use, this wrench measures torque in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. To measure torque, turn the springloaded adjustment collar to the desired setting (inch pounds or Newton meters) and release to lock in place. Tighten the fastener in a slow and controlled motion. When the preset torque value is reached, a reliable mechanical operation inside the handle produces a click you can hear and feel, alerting you to stop applying force. Built for consistent performance and years of dependable service, the mechanical design doesn’t need batteries, and the steel and aluminum construction has no internal plastic parts to wear out.IMPORTANT: This wrench is shipped precalibrated and ready to use. To help maintain calibration, store at its lowest setting of 10 in.lb./1.1 Nm when not in use. Be sure to read and understand the operator’s manual, including all safety information, before first use.Specifications:Range – in.-lb.: 10-150 in.-lb.Range – Nm: 1.1-16.9 NmIncrement: 1 in.-lb.

TEKTON TRQ21101 1/4-Inch Drive Dual-Direction Click Torque Wrench (10-150 in.-lb./1.1-16.9 Nm) Review
I’ve never used an in/lb torque wrench before. I usually just tighten hex nuts/bolts or screw until it feels tight enough. Well, I have a project where the parts manufacturer instructs to use a specific in/lb torque setting when installing. Since the part provides an important safety feature I figured I should probably follow the manufacturer’s instructions. After looking at some of the different in/lb torque wrenches (which I don’t recall there being a lot of) I settled on this. I already have a ft/lb torque wrench & a ratchet driver both made by Tekton so I figured, why not. It is well made, solid construction, nice fit & finish. Being an in/lb wrench, the click isn’t as pronounced as the lb/ft. You have to really focus to feel it. So no loud techno music. -Read Reviews-

Tested on bolt already torqued higher than this wrench tightens. At first I thought it was defective but I was able to figure out the problem. At some settings you may hear a click sound when the torque setting is reached. However, at low settings you wont hear the click but this wrench ‘breaks’ a few degrees off center. It will not stop you from tightening but it is obvious if you go slowly and practice a couple times before using.
