The use of standard universal adapters may compromise joint integrity-preventing adequate torque from reaching the fastener. Studies have determined that when the swivel angle exceeds 15°, there may be significant ”scatter” or reduction in measured torque valves.
Omega Technologies has developed a line of Universal Adapters that have a maximum tilt of 15°. Machined from premium shock-resistant 4340 steel and heat-treated for toughness, these tools offer top performance and long life. Omega Torque Control Swivel Adapters are tough. Max torque values are higher than typical 30°-35° swivels.
Please note that these are not intended for use with impact tools.
