Shear Tight System
TFTCO’s proprietary Shear-Tight System was designed to ensure safety-critical torque requirements for fastening a vehicle’s suspension – without the risk of over or under-tightening.
Using the revolutionary Shear-Tight Wrench, the companion Shear-Tight Bolt is designed with a breaking groove to fracture (and visually confirm to the operator) once the specific required torque has been reached. Our combining of high-strength steel and heat treatment methods allows us to customize the torque requirements for each application.
A summary of the advantages delivered by the Shear-Tight System include:
- Easy one-handed fastening with almost zero reaction force to the operator.
- Small variation in torque tightening.
- Simplification of Quality Assurance System.
- Visual confirmation of proper assembly eliminates timely/costly quality checks for correct torque – ultimately guaranteeing the quality of shipped parts.
