Jun, 2016 Update - In early March of 2015, I learned that Park Tools is contracting the manufacture of this torque wrench out to a supplier in Taiwan that uses the same factory in China that is also used by Tekton Tools. After doing a bit of research, I found that the exact same factory which makes this Park Tools TW-5, also makes the Tekton 24320 (The Park Tools TW-5 is roughly $119 and the Tekton 24320 is roughly $38, .... a huge difference). Naturally suspicious, I ordered the Tekton 24320 and tested it against my Park Tools TW-5. To do an accuracy test, I set both the TW-5 and the Tekton 24320 to 4 Newton meters (35.4 inch pounds) (which is what Easton recommends for my EC90 SL riser bar when mated to my Thomson Elite four bolt stem), in my heavy duty vise horizontally and attached a plumb weight (of known mass) from a string on the end and began dialing the lock ring back down to 3 N m, until the weight made it click. I then measured the distance (from the center of the drive to the center of the handle where the string was tied holding the weight) x weight I used and then converted to Newton Meters, and compared that to the setting at which it had clicked. It turns out the TW-5 is accurate to within 7.4%, while the Tekton 24320 is accurate to 1.1%. However, these type of torque wrenches are more accurate when the internal spring is stretched than when it is relaxed, so a further 1 or 2% correction could be in order either way. (you have to consider dynamic versus static loading when conducting testing) For a torque wrench in this range, this is a poor result for the TW-5, and outside the 4% spec Park Tools claims. (there is a method for resetting the wrench back to complete accuracy, but a bit long to describe here).Read more ›

I own both the TW-5 and TW-6 torque wrenches and thought I would point out that you really either need both of these wrenches or you will probably want one torque wrench with a longer continuous range. The TW-5 has a range of 26-132 inch pounds, the TW-6 has a range of 88-530 inch pounds. Meaning the TW-5 is going to be great for smaller projects like tightening bolts on brakes, shifters, etc. For bottom bracket, pedal, or crank work you are going to need to go with the larger TW-6 wrench as a procedure like replacing a Bottom Bracket will require anywhere from 450-600 inch pounds of torque.

Both of these tools come with nice hard plastic clamshell cases and instructions. The TW-5 comes with a 1/4 to 3/8 drive converter as it is a 1/4" drive ratcheting torque wrench.

Remember to dial these back to the minimum torque setting to preserve and maintain the calibration - and maybe most importantly don't loan them to anyone who doesn't know how to use a precision instrument with care... ;-)

So far these have both held up nicely and are a wonderful addition for my tool collection. They fully meet my bike repair/mechanical tinkering requirements. After too many stripped/broken bolts and parts, these will pay for themselves really quickly.

This review is for the 7-1/2" quarter-inch drive model. I like it, it's easy to use, compact and seems sturdy enough so far. I used to have a really cheap 1/4" drive click-style torque-wrench which broke the first time I used it, and this is of noticeably higher quality. I don't have a calibrated wrench to test it with, but I compared it to a Wiha Torque Screwdriver and it matches very closely. Comes with a handy inch-lb to newton-meter conversion chart sticker on the handle.

Bottom line, this is a fine torque wrench for the casual bike mechanic who wants to limit damage to carbon fiber components and alloy fasteners. Don't think of it as a replacement for a $400 Snap-on.

I've only had it for a week, so if it breaks I'll come back and update the review.

When I got the tool I was very please with the size and how it adjusted. Myself being picky about the accuracy of these tools compared its accuracy with one of my high-dollar tools and come to find out it was not even close to being accurate. It was 1-2 Nm off and that equates to 8-16in/lbs.. at every setting. I emailed Park Tools and the fellow I happen to talk to said that was normal. What? For almost $100 I'd expect much better. He did offer to let me send it to them and let them fix it. But you said that was normal???? I just returned it for a refund. Its imported from China so you have to guess their cost is like $2. So they have a huge mark up. Geez torque wrenches from Harbor Freight are imported from China too and they sell for $15-20. I'm very disappointed and needless to say will likely never purchase a Park Tool again. I'm very glad I purchased it on Amazon. Easy hassle free return that didn't cost me anything. Thanks Amazon!

I have used several torque wrenches and while I am a weekend wrencher on bikes I know how they work. I bought several in the past from Sears and hardware stores and thought I would buy what I thought was the best. It failed. The wrench didn't click at 5 N.m when tightening my front derailleur. Crushed the stem and destroyed the Bianchi carbon fiber frame. Don't know if Park will make good on the frame, I don't want the tool. Wouldn't not recommend to anyone and am glad I didn't use it on my Seven.
