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 actual torque applied to the nut or screw. To prevent overtorquing and damage
to equipment, calculate correct dial or scale reading using the conversion formula below.
Correct dial or scale readings are determined by the use of the following formula:
Correct Reading = Required torque value ÷ Length of torque wrench + length of adapter ÷ length of torque
