Enerpac has introduced the SafeT Torque Lock, an innovative and user-friendly safety tool that transforms Enerpac square drive torque wrenches to enable hands free bolting operation.
The company points out its SafeT Torque Lock improves worker safety by minimising exposure to pinch points and high-pressure hydraulic connections. It can also be used in any orientation, including inverted positions, thus reducing the possibility of tool slippage and operator fatigue.
The SafeT Torque Lock converts Enerpac S-Series and RSQ-Series wrenches into hands free operations, which grip securely to any hexagon nut. No additional tooling is required or loose components – such as reaction washers. The SafeT assembles onto the torque wrench with one push of the square drive quick release button for tightening or loosening. It works with heavy hex nuts that conform to ANSI B18.2.4 and has a max torque value of 5,000Nm.
