Valve screwing tool with torque When fitting valve cores in tyre valves, the correct torque is important in order to achieve tightness on the one hand and not to damage the valve seat on the other. To ensure this, the use of this tool is recommended. For rubber valves 0.25Nm is recommended, for metal valves 0.4Nm. If you tighten with too low torque, there is a risk of leakage or the valve may twist out of its seat, gradually causing a leak. If the torque is too high, there is a risk of damaging the valve insert and the valve seat, which can also lead to leaks.
This tool should not be missing in any workshop. Customers expect flawless and professional work here so that they can rely on it to drive without a blowout until the next tyre change. Unfortunately, far too little attention is paid to this fact, although it is precisely this component of the wheel that ensures that the air remains in the tyre.
Under the cap at the back of the handle there is an adjustment screw with which the torque can be set and corrected if necessary, so it can be used for both applications. For the professional with a high throughput, we recommend using 2 tools in parallel, each with the appropriate presetting. Once you have worked with it, you will not want to miss this useful tool.
