Default Review of the ACE Torque Wrench

Hello all,

I need to buy one torque wrench for tightening lug nut.
The one from HF has horrible reviews. Recently, I find this one from ace hardware.

Does anyone have experience on this product?

Thank you

I bought one just like it last summer but it was branded under a different name. It works really well. I don't like it as much as my longer torque wrench, but it works pretty nice. It came with a nice storage case and such.

edit:

I just checked mine, it appears to be identical, but sold under the name Primegrip. It has a max setting of 150 ft-lbs. It says made in Taiwan on the side. It's nice and heavy with a big ratchet head.

May you help me check whether your product ID is #Item#: 2023927

Question> How do you feel it when you use it to tighten the wheel lug nuts?

Thank you

I cannot find that number on mine.

It is a fairly nice wrench, the adjustment mechanism is pretty decent, but not as good as others I have tried. This torque wrench is a little shorter than my other torque wrench, so it takes some extra effort, but not much. It has a very loud click. I have used it to torque my lug nuts at least twice. I am quite pleased with it.

Like I said, mine is under a different name, but almost identical looking otherwise.

That looks exactly like the Harbor Freight version.

I have the small inch pound wrench and I have the larger foot pound wrench. Both are fine for what I do. I had one break and they gave me another off the shelf. As long as they will replace I do not care if they break. I paid less then $50 for the two of them. You will be fine with them unless you are a full time mechanic that is picky about their tools.
