Despite the roles they perform, you should handle torque tools like a fragile piece of equipment. Never use the wrench with a cheater bar or as a breaker. Sensitive internal parts make can easily be deformed from improper use or sudden shocks. Anytime there a wrench is dropped or struck it should immediately be taken out of service and recalibrated.
