The interchangeable head tools comprise three electronic, two micrometer, and four preset versions. They come in 1/4, 3/8, 1/2-in. drives with torque values from 25-in.-lb to 250-ft-lb.

Attachments include ratcheting, open-end, and box heads in metric or inch sizes. An easy-to-understand part-numbering system matches the correct torque wrench to the attachment.

The interchangeable system addresses the fact that mechanical assemblies are becoming tighter and more compact. The new designs allow you to remove the ratchet head and replace it with an open end or box head with a narrower profile to fit tighter spaces. They meet/exceed ASME B107.14M.

The new wrenches also keep workers productive, letting them change heads without having to recalculate torque values. Box and open-end attachments have the same center-to-center distance as the ratchet heads that fit on the same tool. Each attachment is also marked with a recommended maximum torque value to prevent fastener overtorquing.

Open-end attachments are angled to 15° to help increase total arc swing that a fastener can be turned by flipping the wrench over. This helps keep the wrench clear of obstructions.

Ratcheting heads combine a low profile with a 15° arc swing to work in tight spaces, as well as a reversing lever design for quick, one-hand operation. The 24-tooth configuration fits 4, 6, and 12-point fasteners.

Box heads feature patented Proto Torque Plus Design to engage fastener flats, not the corners. They are countersunk on both sides to more easily get the wrench on the fastener. The 12-point box end is indexed to 7.5° to help keep the shank clear of obstructions as you flip the wrench over to continue fastener turning.
