Sounds like a QD-series click-type where it has a ring and rotating handle? Not sure how those pop apart, however, I wouldn't bother. I'd just have the man on the truck repair and recalibrate for $50-$100. For head fasteners and stuff, I'd buy a techangle and keep the QD for nostalgia.

Sorry not much help :(

Those look like a nice wrench. For 90% of fasteners that aren't wacky torque to spec beyond "torque to x, then y within this range of +/- 10n" that wrench is probably more that fine.

The only time I insist on the tech or techangle is if I'm working on things like my bike or if the torque reqs are absolute. But thats's like $500+ to tighten a fastener to a taiwanese piece of Harley junk.

For me, I suffer from "is it actually gonna click" anxiety. I just feel better having the wrench tell me the applied torque while tightening and then beeping. Plus they look like a cosmic dildo, which I think is funny.

If it has a lifetime warranty, it never hurts to give them a call to see if they'll warranty it. I have 3x QDs and I think they are great. I'm not sure what the future holds for Craftsman tools since they were sold to Black & Decker. B&D owns DeWalt and MAC, so who knows, maybe they will finally get the love they deserve.

Tough to complain especially with the lifetime warranty. Good thing too because the plastic battery cover was broken right out of the box so it already needs to be exchanged.
Does yours show the torque as applied?
Staying in this thread because there is only false hope in the Clinton thread
Did you swap out your diff fasteners for new?
N/M just saw your latest update. Fastenal all the way.
