    I bought one last year and absolutely love it. My other, off brand 150, has been good to me for many years, but I’ve used this on all three vehicles we own. Definitely worth the small investment.

    bought it

    I've got some other Tekton tools and they've held up well.

    I've been loading up on Tekton tools for quite some time now, and have been thoroughly impressed. Back in the day, I had craftsman, and while they were ok tools, what made me like them more than most is that I could waltz into my local sears, and they would give me a brand new one on the spot if I broke something, no questions asked. Over the last say 5 years, I find their tools aren't very good at all, and still priced high for what they offer. I switched to husky and have never broken anything, and in the last few years, have been loading up on Tekton tools, and love them. Great grips, more teeth in their ratcheting tools (like gearwrench, snapon, etc) and generally very good quality.

    I like the Tekton torque wrenches. I bought a 1/2 in, 3/8” ft lb, 3/8” in lb, and 1/4” in lb all for the price that I would have bought any other brands single torque wrench for.

    RECOMMENDED BUY : TEKTON 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench

    I have to retract my love for tekton torque wrenches. Pulled my 3/8 out the drawer today to verify torque on my beadlocks and right away I felt something wasn’t right. Didn’t think they could have backed out this much in just one day. Went out and bought a new Craftsman and checked torque and then used the Tekton again to verify and sure enough it was not clicking or stopping at the designated setting.

    That's too bad about the Tekton. The only Craftsman I would use is a beam.

    These are crap. I just haven't had the heart to throw them away.

    Lol the crappy click one is the one I ended up buying. I went all over town trying to find a decent torque wrench. Plopped down big money for a digital Kobalt and the damn battery compartment wouldn’t open out of the package and it was last on on shelf. Them went to several hardware stores and all they had was off brand 20 dollar torque wrenches. Sears was the last stop so grabbed the Craftsman. They didn’t have a beam torque wrench in stock there either. Pretty sure that sears is on the chopping block.

    Yes. My local Sears closed a few weeks ago. Total bummer. My click torque wrenches did work for a short time, then stopped registering appropriately. I was able to return two of them in a timely manner, however the replacements stopped functioning appropriately as well.

    I think Ace and Lowe’s will honor the warranty on them now.

    I would contact them. I’m sure they will warranty it.
