TORQUE WRENCH ADAPTERS
Some tasks require the use of a torque wrench adapter when the nut or screw cannot be reached with
a regular socket on the end of the torque wrench. These adapters add to the overall length of the torque
wrench and make the dial or scale reading less than the actual torque applied to the nut or screw. To
prevent overtorquing and damage to equipment, calculate correct dial or scale reading using Conversion
Formula (page 0385 00-7/8 blank).
