Use a torque wrench to prevent common over-tightening problems

torque-wrench-testing+harbor-freight-mechanical05

It’s vitally important that the tightness of a fastener fall within a fairly narrow range. Too loose and there’s the danger of the nut or bolt spontaneously unscrewing down the road. Or maybe the gasket or O-ring fitting clamped by that bolt will leak. Too tight and there are other risks: The bolted-together part may be compressed, bent or otherwise damaged. The bolt shank could break, or the threads may strip, providing no clamping force at all.
