Viewers Can See the Wrenches’ Speed, Strength and Access in Action

SPARKS, Md. (August 8, 2016) – GearWrench®, an innovative hand tool brand known for tools that deliver speed, strength, and access to automotive technicians, today released a new video showcasing its popular Electronic Torque Wrench (ETW) line. Available nationwide, the Electronic Torque Wrenches provide high quality, outstanding features and great value.

The video demonstrates the wrenches ease of use and highlights additional features, including “Target Torque Alert”, which can be set to give a warning as the target torque setting is approached. This allows for more control so there is less chance of over torqueing a fastener. GearWrench ETWs also have the added benefit of being able to measure in foot-pounds, inch-pounds or Newton meters, which increases versatility.

“Not only do we want to provide our customers with quality tools, we want to arm them with the resources and tools needed to work efficiently,” said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. “This new video accurately and effectively demonstrates how to use the Electronic Torque Wrenches to achieve the maximum results desired by today’s automotive technicians.”

GearWrench Electronic Torque Wrenches are incredibly accurate, with a tolerance of ±2 percent for clockwise tightening from 20 percent to 100 percent of their full scale. The wrenches come in a blow-molded case for secure storage, and are covered under a limited one-year warranty. Additionally, calibration is warranted for 90-days from the date of purchase.
