[Napa Auto Parts] 1/2" Drive UltraPro Torque Wrench ($29.99)

An alternative to the PA $20 special (princess-auto-1-2-dr-click-type-torque- ... v-2331201/)...

Can't speak to the "regular price" of $168.69 which I'm sure is inflated.

The NAPA wrench comes in a plastic case.
NAPA lists the wrench's specifications.

Features chrome moly ratchet gears for long life.
Meets ISO 6799
U.S. Fed. Spec.
GGG-W-686D and ANSI B107.14M
Heat Treated Handle
Chrome Vanadium ratchet gear
Calibrated within ±4%
Clicks when torque value is reached


The P.A. wrench comes in clear plastic and they show next to nothing about the wrench's specs.

For an additional $10 - there's no question about which one I'd buy.

To put words in their mouth... The NAPA one to them (and me) is worth the extra $10 as you're getting actual specs, a wrench that comes in a plastic case (as opposed to a blister pack), and there's a warranty document (Maybe PA version has one? Online listing is pretty sparse).

I can't say if this is the same wrench as PA or not, but I'm picking it up this evening and can at least compare it to the 3/8ths Princess Auto one I have (missed out on 1/2" that time around).

Would this be a good wrench for wheel changes for a Toyota Camry? I'd need a socket extension too, right?

Manual says 76 ft•lbf (103 N•m, 10.5 kgf•m) for wheel nut torque

I believe you can bring anything back to PA if you are not happy.

Sure (so would the PA one). Don't use your torque wrench to remove your lugs.
