What Is a Torque Multiplier and How Does It Work?

A torque multiplier is a tool that provides a mechanical advantage when loosening or tightening nuts and bolts. They're used to increase the amount of applied torque, allowing workers to rapidly assemble or disassemble heavy machinery, vessels, and structures.

Torque multipliers are the epitome of "work smarter, not harder." They provide upgraded safety, greater precision, and higher levels of efficiency and productivity. Under normal circumstances, tightening and loosening heavy-duty fasteners is exhausting work.

A torque multiplier is an invaluable addition to your toolkit. It provides the extra power you need to turn bolts, nuts, and screws with ease. A small push can generate a high torque making it a better, safer alternative to extended handles or "cheater bars", which can result in a safety hazard if the tool were to fail while in use.
