Protect your wheels, wheel studs, and brake rotors with STEELMAN torque extensions. The STEELMAN 50091A 1/2-Inch Drive Blue 80 ft-lb Torque Extension is designed to prevent damage to wheels, studs, and brake rotors by reducing the risk of overtightening lug nuts which can result in sheared stud bolts, rounded lug nuts, and warped rotors. This 8-inch extension bar will, when used with an electric or pneumatic impact wrench, limit the effective output of the wrench to 80 ft-lb of torque and anything above that will cause the extension bar to flex and absorb the extra impact. This torque stick is made of resilient chrome molybdenum (Chromoly) steel that has a blue powder coat to make it easy to pick out among other tools or in a crowded toolbox.
8-INCH EXTENSION - Torque extension is 8-inches long to allow easy clearance and prevent damage to wheels by a too close impact wrench

PREVENT OVER-TIGHTENING - Prevent over-tightening that can lead to premature failure of wheels, wheel studs, and rotors
POWDER COATED - Powder coated blue for additional corrosion resistance and to easily identify it among other extensions and tools
FLEXES TO LIMIT TORQUE - When 80 ft-lb of torque is reached the extension will flex and absorb additional impacts instead of continuing to tighten
1/2-INCH DRIVE - Both male and female ends are 1/2-inch drive for use with heavy duty impact wrenches and sockets
CALIBRATION FREE - With a pre-determined maximum allowed torque and no moving parts it is maintenance and recalibration free
