Handy little bike tool that makes handlebar, stem, seat post, etc. adjustments much faster and easier than pulling out and using the beam torque wrench (or guessing). Allows for quick adjustments regardless of what position your bike is in since you can feel and hear the 5Nm setting 'pop'. I used it to quickly assemble, adjust and re-tweak adjustments on a new alloy mountain bike and then, since I was on a roll, I checked over our carbon road bikes and found several bolts that were looser than they should have been. I do agree with another reviewer that the wrench is a little awkward to hold and twist in certain positions, possibly due to the twirl knob on the top, but it still rates 5 Stars IMO.

Note: Be sure to get this model with the four removable bits since Ritchey has a similar 5Nm model, for almost the same price, but with a non-removable M4 bit.

When tightening it feels like more than 5nm so I checked it with a "proper" torque wrench, and it clicks over at about 5.7nm so that's pretty close. It still makes me nervous that I'm going to over tighten the bolts or screws. When using it after having it sit for a while (a week or so?) it feels like it "sets in" and doesn't click over where it should. I've put a screw into the wall that I use to click it over a few times before using it on the fastener I want to tighten. Seems to work more accurately that way.

Holy cow is this a handy little device! It works great and I use it all the time for my seatposts and saddle clamps. It’s also nice for handlebars. Because of the Ritchey TorqKey I have yet to have need for an expensive torque wrench. Some people complain that they can’t get a good grip with this device but I haven’t had that issue at all. You will need to tighten things quite a bit before that click kicks in. When I first got the tool I thought mine was broken because I’d never hear the click. I had to have a bike mechanic demonstrate it for me and that’s when I realized I just hadn’t been doing it hard enough.

After purchasing my first ever all carbon Cervelo R3 road bike, I was having a heck of a time adjusting the saddle height without it slipping because I didn't want to over tighten the seatpost clamp. Although I was able to find the correct bike fit, the seatpost caused creaking in any movement of the frame. The creak was partly caused by the local bike shop not using any carbon fiber assembly paste/gel. But at the same time, I was super nervous about tightening the seatpost clamp which Cervelo recommended between 4Nm and 5Nm of torque. This hand little tool eased my fears and worked perfectly. The handle is a little small, but this is probably needed to be able to fit around the saddle angles. Between this and the Finish Line. Fiber Grip Gel, my bike is now creak free.

Everyone who wrenches on their own bike should buy one of these. They are cheap and good insurance against over/under-tightening their bike fasteners. 5NM is about perfect for almost every small bolt on a bicycle from teh seatpost to stem/handlebar bolts. If you have carbon parts or a carbon frame this tool will pay for itself almost immediately since you never have to worry about crushing a carbon seatpost, handlebar, or steer tube and ruining an expensive part.

You don't need to worry about under-tightening a part that will come lose on you in a middle of a long ride, or stripping/deforming the threads of a fastener which will cause it to come lose as well if you over-tighten it.

5NM is a LOT more than you think it is with a tiny handle like this so don't juts assume this tool is broke if you don't feel a click. You have to turn it a lot harder than you think to get to the setpoint for this tool to activate, telling you it is the right torque value.

I see in other reviews that people think their torque key is defective since it won't click. You just have to turn it harder. I've tested mine against my calibration tool and while it seems like it too much, the gauge tells me it is right on at 5nm.

Look at the Park Tools webpage for a handy chart on torque values to see how many fasteners on your bike are at or near 5NM for a torque value.

Pros:

Quick and easy for all the fasteners on your bike that are 5NM

Comes with 4 bits to fit different size allen heads and torx.

Cons:

It takes a lot of hand strength (or two hands) to get to 5NM with such a tiny handle.

Only does 5NM so it isn't adjustable. It's a tiny tool but isn't good for all bike torqueing jobs.

Torque spec is way off on the one I have.... will attempt to have it replaced. I was wondering why my seatpost clamp kept slipping even though the torque is suppose to be 45 inch pounds or 5.1 NM. I checked the final torque after using it with a "real" variable torque wrench and it was about 15 inch pounds off (apprx 30ish). The bolt turned about 3/4's of a revolution with the accurate torque wrench after the TorqKey released on it's setting.

Works great! I used my Venzo torque wrench first at 5nm. Then then I checked the Ritchey Key against it for accuracy.
It seemed to be spot on. I heard that if you haven't used a torque wrench in a while you should test it before using it on the part that needs torqued.... so that what I did. The first time it seemed very hard to turn, second time was a lot easier and consistent after that.
