TEKTON 24335 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench (10-150 ft.-lb./13.6-203.5 Nm)
Drive Click Torque Wrench lets you work with confidence, eliminating guessing and the common tendency to overtighten fasteners. Simple and easy to use, this wrench has a reversible ratcheting head that drives fasteners in both directions and measures torque in the clockwise direction. drive torque wrench (1) Storage case (1) Operator's manual with torque conversion chart. Wrench emits a click that can be heard and felt when the preset value is reached.
"Update 9/18/2015. I got my replacement yesterday and I'm really satisfied on how Russ from Tekton took care of this, I asked how to return the other original item and instead let me hang on to it."
"I asked a local mechanic to verify that the tool was working - he said it seemed fine, but I cannot get it to click at all when using it set to 108 ft-lb (well within it's specified range) to torque the axel nut on my motorcycle. When talking with them on the phone, the manufacturer admitted that this type of torque wrench has a design flaw which makes it easy to inadvertently break the tool: The instructions are clear that the tool must be stored at it's lowest setting. But if you loosen the tool to just BELOW it's lowest setting, (which the design of the tool makes far too easy to do), it is permanently damaged."
"This 1/2 inch drive socket torque wrench is ideal for that 13 to almost 203 Newton Meters (Nm) range that applies to larger fasteners on a mountain bike (such as the bottom bracket and freewheel), and to make sure undue stress is not being applied to the carbon fiber frame or components. (you have to consider dynamic versus static loading when conducting testing) Still, a deviance of only 0.8% is well within the 4% Tekton claims and is very accurate for a torque wrench in this price range. Also, the feel of the Tekton 24335 is much more intuitive during dynamic loading and when you reach the limit in torque you set, the click and swivel of the head is sharp, loud and easy to notice due to the roller pin rolling over the roller bearing. That is simply a huge amount of difference and when you combine that with the fact that the Tekton 24335 is so accurate, it makes choosing the Tekton easy. So far, I have had my Tekton 24335 for about seven months and have used it not only on my bikes but also with some light auto work, and the wrench has been both accurate and performed superbly."
"The adjusting mechanism was very rough, and when adjusting to the upper end of the range, difficult."
"Broke after just a few uses.Weird grinding noises when changing torque setting, and no longer clicks when torque setting is reached."

Motive Products 0100 European Power Brake Bleeder w/ Adapter
European Power Bleeder Power Bleeder- pressure brake bleeder, 2 quart capacity, with 45mm threaded adapter (1100) for most European cars including Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Saab, Volvo, VW and others. Motive POWER BLEEDER hand pump works anywhere - great for the home, shop, or track.
"I happened to mess up on the initial purchase, se la vi, but the second item, I didn't know about until mine started spraying and every time I cut an inch off to get past a crack in the line, a new one appeared."
"Took me longer to fill it with brake fluid and pump it up than it did to actually bleed my clutch!"
"Works excellent, turns bleeding the brakes or clutch into a one man job, very well constructed nice thick tubing and tank material."
"My car required 2 bar (30 PSI) to bleed the brakes per the service manual and this worked fine at that high a pressure."
"Best work around to get the black model effect is to hold the cap that goes on brake fluid reservoir tightly and rotate empty brake pump bottle (I think it's clockwise) to two turns holding the bottle tight, put the cap on the reservoir holding the bottle tight after the turn, the pipe will unwind as the cap is rotated on the reservoir."
"I filled up the bleeder with 5 cans and screwed the adapter onto the master cylinder -- perfect fit. I don't think the Black Label bleeder is necessary as the plastic adapter on this one that screws onto the master cylinder seems sturdy enough."
"Update : Solved the kinky hose problem by adapting the 1/4" quick disconnect adapter from Harbor Freight. Its a pity that the bleeder cap already has the threading for it and all it needs is the disconnect adapter which the bleeder does not have, which when using it resulted in a big frustration with the kinky hose. I should further mention that for those bleeder without the air release valve, it is prudent to loosen the cap a bit to let the air out before disconnecting from the quick-disconnect."

Best Oil System Tools

Lisle 24680 Spill-Free Funnel
The spill-free funnel has been improved by adding an extra 45 degree elbow, a 5 inch extension, and a new E-adapter. The spill-free funnel eliminates trapped air pockets which usually cause erratic cooling system and heater performance.
"My 350z has a closed coolant system not like my older GM vehicles where just leaving the radiator cap open would burp the air out. of the cooling system. How to do it: From all my reading the best way to tackle this issue is to attach the funnel to your radiator cap opening while cold and fill the funnel about 1/4 up so when system burps fluid falls into they system rather than more air. Once car is cooled down follow the instructions on how to remove the funnel. and close your radiator, by this point 95-100% of the air is out of the system."
"During cooling system bleeding, the funnel serves as a reservoir for additional coolant that drains into the radiator as trapped air escapes. Anyone with a modicum of ingenuity and mechanical aptitude should be able to fabricate a custom adapter from a spare radiator cap and miscellaneous parts purchased from the plumbing department of Home Depot!"
"I don't know how I would've done a three-time coolant flush so easily (and mess free) without this thing!"
"Saw one of my co workers had something similar to this but his lacked a lot of the adapters that this one comes with and I have to say this little kit makes life a lot easier especially with the plug and i like that it comes with a top lid for storing all the adapters after the bag is torn open."
"I wish I had purchased this a long time ago."
"This made refilling the coolant a totally mess-free process and insured I had completely removed all the air bubbles from my cooling system. This is especially important with our newer lean-burning engines that have very thin cooling jackets in the engine and must have adequate coolant flow without air pockets to be effective."
"And any remaining coolant is held in the funnel when the stopper is put into place."

"Now, that may be great for lugs and such but there are some really hard to get to spots on my car that require greater than 100lb torque specks (one I know off the top of my head is 146 ft lbs)."
"Only used it for a little while but so far so good."
"I regularly use it at the higher torque settings and it works great and is easy to use, see, and adjust."

"One of the two retaining bolts at the head of the wrench fell out the first time I used it."

Additional features include: detachable leads with inductive pickup, protective hand guard for one-hand operation and patented skip circuitry test up to 9,990 RPM. Check timing, diagnose a no-spark condition, check for electronic advance/retard and more.
"Great timing light for the money, handy for the situations where there is only a single mark on the balancer and the timing cover and no other timing marks, I was able to set the gun to 8º BTDC and just line up the 2 marks on my boat engine since there was no timing tab on the timing cover."
"Good quality Timing Light."
"Needed a timing light with a tach as my 72 Scout does not have one."
"The price was great and the shipping was fast."
"Packaged well, arrived quickly, works well -- thank you!"
"Some models of this light incorporate a tach, but not this one."
"The tach and battery voltage make it easy to get everything taken care of for a tuneup."
"To eliminate the spark plug as the problem as their website implies, I used my old Actron timing light from 1993 (doesn't have the timing degrees or rpm) which works like a champ. I also picked up a Harbor Freight Xenon Timing Light this holiday season which includes timing degree adjustment and it also works fine with my ignition. I then tried the Harbor Freight harness with the 3568 timing light and for about 15 seconds it was working, but then the flashing went erratic. For example the Craftsman Digital timing light controls and wire harness is a dead ringer for the Actron digital timing light and the Matco timing light looks like a dead ringer of the Innova 5568."

Fineed Hand-Held 12V Electric Mini Air Inflator with 150PSI, Rechargeable Battery, Digital Display, Tire Pressure Monitor and Preset
With this amazing inflator,you won't need to spend any more money at the air pump at a service station!The pump is rechargeable so it is always ready when you need it,if it is depleted you can plug it in and use it too.It comes with an internal battery for use on the go and it has AC/DC adapter,charging cord as well for when you are at home or in the car. ●Pls connect the inflator with car charger instead of connecting with the wall socket while pumping something,because the output of wall socket can't reach the current required when the inflator works. The output airflow volume is about 12LPM, if tire is big, the working time will be longer. ●Flat tire emergency inflator-rechargeable lithium battery,can be charged with 12V car charger or 110V home charger.The inflator can fully pump a car tire in 15 minutes when you have a flat tire.
"The first time, I was concerned with the display showing a rapid climb in numbers. Turns out the display during that phase is counting seconds - how long it takes to complete, and not air pressure. Update: The numbers can be cycled to show elapsed time or current inflation reading. I inflated two tires on a hand truck / dolly and two bicycles which were completely flat. The charge gave up the ghost on the fourth bicycle tire. So much easier than carting stuff to a gas station or pumping by hand."
"I thought about using this "portable" device to inflate my motorbike too, but the extra step of bringing my bike to my car, and see ^^ above ^^ dissuaded me. I considered getting an AC to DC power supply, then I could just bring the "portable" inflator to the house and use an outlet. A decent AC to DC power supply capable of outputting 15A would have cost at least $50. I guess I could have used my bicycle floor pump, but the sweat effort I once exerted trying to top off a single car tire quickly dissuaded me. This can be fixed by purchasing a Topeak Pressure-Rite adapter, which has a check valve built in. I also bought a 6 foot air hose extension, because I don't like squatting by each tire as it's filling. The buttons are small, spaced closely, and have a long throw. This made it a little difficult to press, so I resorted to using my finger nails to get the proper reach I am sure the plastic will wear out with my hard finger nails pressing into it."
"I love the portability and for quick inflation needs."
"Takes getting used to but when you do."
"Very good support when contacted through email."
"Works great..took about one charge to inflate a car tire...but it worked."
"I recently purchased bikes for the family, and also had a slow leak in a car tire (not to mention having pool floats), so it seemed like a good time to buy some sort of air compressor to help solve current and future problems."
"Only good for occasional use."

"Also, this meter does not abide by E/IR rules, a tad off, so if you really need accurate measurements, this meter is not the right one."

"Purchased 5 sets and to extra 3/8'' rails and mounted them to plywood so the don't move."
"In the past I've tried the plated steel version of a strip socket holders & found them to be a waste of money They would end up rusting and the sockets were so hard to put on & take off that I ended up bending them all up. I thought these were a bit pricey but that changed when I started snapping on my sockets. "EDIT" I wrote this review a year ago and never hit the "Submit" button."
"My only suggestion would be to have Osla tools label each individual place with the socket size that should go in order...other than that it is great."
"The sockets slide perfectly,Not sloppy or hard to slide. If your wondering if you can use your previous plastic socket adapters from another socket holder you really can't."
"I bought a large socket set years ago from a big box retailer. These Olsa socket holders are a very high quality set. If I had to find something to constructively criticize, it might be simply that the rubber end pieces might eventually crack and not stay on."
"I came across this on Amazon and seen it held up to sixteen sockets and i gave them a try' love them they work great."

I may add them, but if you're close to the stated weight capacity, it has some springy bounce to it, which may over time result in some less-springy metal fatigue, less funny snapping, and collapsing into the parts tray where the thing will shoot out from under your butt and drop you on the ground."
"It's a little lower than a low stool but not so low you cannot get up off the floor easily from a sitting position."
"I don't have a nice motorcyle lift and having to work on areas of the bike 1-3 ft above the ground is a breeze with this guy."

Best Windshield Wiper Tools

Invisible Glass 99031 Reach and Clean Combo Pack, 19 fl. oz.
Cleans without streaky residue.
"The end piece unscrews so you can attach a pole to reach high windows which makes this a muti-purpose product."
"Based on some of the reviews here I was a little skeptical of this tool, but I was tired of driving with a murky/slimy/grimy windshield that seemed impossible to clean using the traditional cloth-and-Windex method. I dreaded every time I attempted to clean my windshield, the contorted positions, the always-unreachable bottom of the windshield where it meets the dashboard, and the inevitable streaky result which made my wonder why I should even bother. The instructions say to spray cleaning fluid (I used some automotive glass cleaner akin to Windex) directly on the windshield and then rub it with the tool, but for my car (Subaru Outback with EyeSight) I can't spray anything directly on the windshield (Subaru fanbois know why) so I just equipped the rubbing sock on the tool (it's a little awkward stretching it so tightly to fit over the triangular head of the tool) and then sprayed liquid on the cloth."
"I just pulled off the fabric and clean the windshield with my hand because I can apply more pressure and wipe it down better."
"This is one of those tools you didn't realize you needed as bad as you think ."
"In the past i have never been able to really clean my windshields from the inside and on bright sunny days have the horror of driving with streaks and glares obstructing my view."
"Easy to use. Microfiber is removable and washable. Great price. Arrived in two days via Amazon Prime. *i also purchased invisible®️ glass spray along with this product , that also worked great."

Except I noticed on this bad boy I can see when the last codes where erased on a vehicle so I can weed out those dealer cars that clear codes on their problem child cars as they enter the auction. It goes to auctions 4 auctions a week and probably scans at least 50 cars per auction. I can scan vehicle almost on the auction block if need be for those cars that just appear that you never saw parked in the sale lot.. Also for kicks i scanned a Maserati and it worked..Scans Mercedes c class to."

Best Spark Plug & Ignition Tools

Lisle (LIS65600) Broken Spark Plug Remover for Ford Triton 3 Valve Engines
The set includes a unique porcelain pusher tool and a tapered left-hand thread remover for removing the broken spark plug without leaving the porcelain in the engine cylinder. This provides space for the left hand thread remover to bite into the stainless steel plug tip so it can then be pulled.
"I gave 4 stars because the manufacturer explains how to push the ceramic down so the tool can 'bite' into the metal portion of the spark plug."
"needless to say, the truck ran like complete crap and required the infamous plug change. One bit of advice, be sure to coat the extractor end (left-handed threaded part that goes into the plug) with anti-seize first. once you remove the first broken plug with ease, ignore that uncomfortable feeling in the front of your pants. that's just the raging excitement you got from realizing that you don't have to go through the terrible task of pulling the cylinder heads."
"I am starting to think it is quicker to snap the plugs and use this tool to remove them, just make sure you have some big deep sockets, long extensions, and universal joints first."
"the products with two or less rings had issues of breaking this one had four which indicated it was the newest to date and did remove all the broken plugs."
"After doing research and calling (for laughs mind you) to dealers and repair shops to get quotes for changing out 8 plugs - which pricing was coming back at a range of '$300 IF no plugs break, but they break so it is $50 per plug which could be $700 total', to a rate of '$400 for the plugs and $100 a shop hour for any plug that breaks, and they all break', I decided that it was time to invest the $60 for this tool. So the $$$ I saved from the average $600-700 it would have cost for a shop to do it, I got this tool, plugs, an air compressor, 50' air hose, air tools and several new sockets and hand tools."

"It really is a huge relief having this in my car with me in the event I need to jump start a vehice. I was out shopping over the weekend and saw a couple people lining up there cars the old fashioned way to jump start there vehicle. Simply connect the red wire to the red jump start crimp and the black wire to the black jump start crimp."
"Anyone traveling with an iPhone + iPad should have one of these."
"This charger is awesome, and it's ability to charge two devices at a time is the best."
"Emergency portable car jump starter battery is just a life saver. Once I finished night shift and my car did not start, then I realized the importance of this type of portable jump starter which instantly charge the car battery without any problem."

Best Riveters

Astro Pneumatic Tool 1442 13" Hand Rivet Nut Setter Kit - Metric & SAE W/ 60pc Rivnuts
Patented structure increases power and reduces shock Shorter handle with double compound hinges that maximize leverage Includes Hand Nut/Thread Setting Riveter 6 interchangeable mandrel/nosepiece sets in Metric M5, M6, & M8 and in SAE 10-24, 1/4-20, & 5/16-18 Includes 10 pieces of each of the following rivet nuts: M5, M6, M8,10-24, 1/4-20 and 5/16-18 Versatile and powerful hand nut/thread setting riveter, takes the hard work out of setting rivet nuts Ideal for working in hard-to-reach area Ergonomic grip for easy operation. Includes 10 pieces of each of the following rivet nuts: M5, M6, M8,10-24, 1/4-20 and 5/16-18.
"I finally decided to give the Astro kit a try, recognizing that it's Chinese made and might have some issues. A drop of heavy oil at each pivot point, and a little light grease on the sliding quill that holds the mandrels makes all the difference in the world. This is due to the fact that the bore through the tool body is at least 1/16 larger diameter than the "pulling bar" that slides through it."
"There were open holes that were missing the flush mount rivets so by using this tool we were able to use the proper insert and install it with this riveter and then install the screw in bolt as needed. Then open your tool so the arms are wide and insert that end into the hole and compress the tool using equal strength and straight on, do not try and insert at an angle."
"Make sure you press evenly and you can compensate one side to the other need be. Adapters switch out VERY easily which is great."
"When installing the rivet just start out by only partially threading on the rivet for the first crimp then adjust how far the threads are in the rivet for the final crimp."
"I recommend before using this for the first time thread up some sacrificial rivet nuts and squeeze the tool to watch and get used to what happens when you operate the tool."
"Wish it had additional fittings for smaller riv/pim nuts, but it has performed well thus far (at least 50 times)."
"Tool worked great - take care to read the instructions and oil the tool before use."
"Get about 5 inserts each."

Best Lockout Kits

Battery Tender 021-0123 Battery Tender Junior 12V, 0.75A Battery Charger
Battery Tender Junior 12V Battery Charger is much more than a trickle charger. Automatic charge cycle functionality switches to float mode after fully charging the battery.
"There are quite a few float charger type products out there that bill themselves as "battery tenders" but the actual product name of this is "Battery Tender Jr." - they have other Battery Tender products, including one with higher charging output, and one with more outputs for charging multiple batteries. A battery that is kept at full charge will have a much longer service life than a battery that is left sitting with less than a full charge. The difference with the Battery Tender products is that they are intelligent: they have computers inside that analyze the state of charge of the battery to which they are connected, and alter their output to adjust: Initialization, Bulk Charge Mode, Absorption Mode, Float Mode). I have not had a single battery go bad in the five years since I have started using Battery Tenders - and every battery still performs like it is brand new. When I park the bike, I simply flip open the cubby, plug in the Battery Tender, and I know the battery is protected and maintained. The Battery Tender works great on standard flooded wet-cell lead-acid batteries, as well as AGM (absorption glass mat) batteries. And you can now get accessories that plug into the Battery Tender vehicle-side connector when the Battery Tender is not connected. See more about these accessories here: Battery Tender USB Charger and 12 volt Socket. Overall, this is one of my favorite products, they work amazingly well, keep your batteries in top shape, and cost less than a quarter of the cost of a single new battery."
"This tender doesn't seem as sturdy as the Battery Tender Juniors I've purchased in the past."
"This hooks up easily, charges the battery right off (it took several hours to fully charge since it was so far down) and keeps it charged just right."
"These are excellent at what they were intended for."
"Nice battery tender."
"Tender works fabulously so far!"
"Wish the light changing instructions were on the front of plug and larger font."
"I checked the voltage output and found only putting out 9.01 vdc (should be over 12vdc), called customer service and they wanted to charge me a "warranty return fee" and possibly other chargers also on top of shipping charges to get the faulty product back to them.-these are less than 9 months old!"

Best Impact Wrenches

DEWALT DCF899HB 20V MAX XR Brushless High Torque 1/2" Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil
The DEWALT DCF899HB 20v MAX XR Brushless High Torque 1/2" Impact Wrench w. Hog Ring Anvil features a brushless motor which is designed to provide superior run-time, performance and durability. Enter your model number to make sure this fits.
"The only bolts I had issues with required me to put it on the 3rd setting, I got a little over zealous with the trigger and snapped them like they were made of plastic. Was looking at getting a air one, but didn't think my compressor would handle it and since I had about every other Dewalt 20 volt tool and 6 batteries this was a no brainer. It is heavy so holding above your head for a long time can get to your arm and shoulder, but still better than a ratchet and breaker bar."
"I have searched all around to different brands and watched videos on them for performance and what other real people are saying about the different models and names of impact wrenches. Hog ring is easier to get off and Detent Pin you need a screw driver or a specific tool. But in reality its fairly light compared to other models. I took off a Catalytic converter with bolts rusted on that I could not get with a breaker bar. I was thinking of buying the 20v 1/2" impact that isn't the high torque version but Im so glad I spent the extra $70 and got this one."
"I tried to remove some seized nuts off a car wheel."
"Bought the DEWALT DCF899HB 20V MAX XR Brushless High Torque 1/2" Impact Wrench with Hog Ring Anvil and the DEWALT DW22812 1/2-Inch 10-Piece IMPACT READY Socket Set to remove blades from a Steiner mower deck."
"If you have a seized or extremely tight bolt I suspect this gun will either liberate your fastener or snap it into pieces like an absolute champion."
"I used the dewalt to remove tractor tires from a Kubota."
"most powerful impact gun available."

Best Strut Compressors

OEMTOOLS 25550 MacPherson Strut Spring Compressor
This OEMTOOLS Strut Spring Compressor quickly and safely compresses the spring for easy replacement of the strut cartridge or strut assembly repair. This OEMTOOLS Strut Spring Compressor quickly and safely compresses the spring for easy replacement of the strut cartridge or strut assembly repair. WIDE RANGE OF COMPATIBILITY: Compress Most Sizes Of Macpherson Strut Springs With The Oemtools Strut Spring Compressor – Quickly And Safely Compress The Spring For Easy Replacement Of The Strut Cartridge Or Strut Assembly Repair.
"Four also provides a greater sense of security than only using two--as I tightened, I was wondering what would happen if one of the compressors suddenly broke (when I was only using two) and what could I do--can't run since there would be no chance, and with it being also so close to my lap, would I get killed or seriously injured, or wind up speaking in a shrill tone of voice? A spring with coils almost as thick as a figure under compression is as, if not more, dangerous than a loaded gun--imagine being hit with one when a compressor breaks."
"As simple as replacing a spring or strut change can be you don't want to make a mistake when working with loaded springs."
"I would advise spending the few extra bucks and buy this in the blow molded case, the plastic that it ships in when you opt for no case is a pain and on top of it, you don't have a case!"
"It wasn't quite able to fit around my 5/8" shock, but if you remove the pin completely, you can attack it to the shock and then reinsert & secure the pin."
"You must keep the strut compressor pulled outward, near the adjustment head, in order to maintain socket access."
"Very good buy and worked for me on my utv shocks to make it easier to change ride height/turn down the spring collars."
"These worked great for my rear springs, easy to use and I felt safe as long as I used them properly and as instructed."
"If you've ever had a spring pop out of a cheaper spring compressor, you know that it's something you don't ever want to have happen again. If these can handle 18kg/mm under heavy compression, with no problem, they will easily handle the factory spring rates found in most cars (3-7kg/mm, or 170-400 lb/in), and the spring rates of off the shelf performance springs (usually no more than 35% stiffer than OEM spring rates)."
