Item # PTD-5/ Tools / Torque Tools
Preset Torque Driver
With carbon fiber components and low torque specifications becoming more common on bicycle components, a torque driver is an essential tool for bike maintenance, adjustment and assembly. The PTD-5 is a shop-quality torque driver that limits torque applied to bolts and fasteners. Once the preset torque limit of five Newton meters (Nm) is reached, the tool gives a loud "click" and will not turn the fastener any further, preventing over-tightening and damage to lightweight components. Includes 1/4" drive bits in the four most common sizes for small bicycle fasteners, which are stored in the handle when not in use.
The PTD-5 features all-metal internal construction for years of accurate use, with a comfortable, ergonomic molded composite body. Each tool is assembled and calibrated at the Park Tool factory in St. Paul, Minnesota.
- Torque range: preset to 5 Newton meters
- Included bits: 3mm hex, 4mm hex, 5mm hex, T25 Torx®-compatible

BikeRadar: Best Cycling Torque Wrenches This new model from Park Tool offers metal mechanical components to give a highly positive and durable wrench. Accuracy is superb and the cam-over mechanism means there’s zero chance of over tightening. Using standard 1/4in bits that magnetically snap in place, the tool also houses three spare bits in the handle. This is the top pick for a preset torque wrench.
