TORQUE WRENCH ADAPTERS
Some maintenance 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 the actual torque applied to the nut or
screw. To prevent overtightening and damage to equipment, calculate the correct dial or scale reading using
the conversion formula provided; refer to Conversion Formula in this WP.
