Main Features

How It Differs Than Others

The Fix It Sticks All-in-one kit is small, lightweight, versatile and extremely handy!

The best part we care about is the torque limiter adapter for gauging how much in-lb torque the user is applying, and it can also be used on other screwdrivers with compatible size socket. 

This tool will save you time and headache on the range and while maintaining firearms. When you use this or any other torque wrench, you have to power to setup an optic right on a firearm.

It's an important tool for mounting firearm accessories especially optics and scope rings to retain zero.

Overall, it's a simple T shaped driver shaft handle that accepts driver bits on all three ends for flexible gripping, and it can be used to remove screws and bolts.

The user can use it without the torque limiter for other tasks.

Torque Limiter Adapter Accuracy

The torque limiter is not digital. As the user applies force, the outer collar will rotate and align with the hashmark (0 to 65 in-lb) to give the user a read out.

Roughly about +/- 6 % accuracy based on Fix It Sticks' website. 

The torque limiter will not click when reaching a specific torque value, and it's a simple spring loaded design.

Do you have to eye ball it? Yes you do, so the accuracy isn't going to be exact if you're torquing for a value in between the harshmarks.

But the read out accuracy is much better than the popular Wheeler FAT Wrench where the user has to get the read out from the small torque scale window.

So far I haven't got to the point where I had to torque something where I can't see the hashmark.

If that's the case, try a torque wrench that clicks, Real Avid Smart Torq Check out the review, when it reaches a set torque value so you know without guessing.
