Which Car Repair Tools Are Best?
Choose Reputable Auto Repair Tools

Currently, the market for car repair tools is quite diverse in terms of brands. Choosing a reputable brand will ensure effective use of tools, durable, providing a different experience while using. Do not choose tools without clear brand information to avoid buying poor quality products.

Chinese brand car repair tools are usually cheap. While products of brands from Japan, Germany, and Korea have higher prices, the quality of these brands' products is worth the money.

Use pulling force, not pushing force, when using tools

If the force is used too strong when tightening, opening bolts or nuts during car repair, it will easily slip and cause unexpected problems. Conversely, if using traction, the hand can be more active when manipulating, ensuring safety and efficiency when repairing.

note: In case traction cannot be used due to space constraints, palm push should be performed.

Be careful when using force to tighten car repair tools

When using an automobile repair tool, the requirement to use the tightening force (tightening the screw or bolting) is very high. Because if the determination of the tightening force is not correct, the force will not be enough to act on the screws or bolts, making these parts easily loose and causing many dangers for vehicle users. Therefore, note that always tighten the screws and bolts one last time with the force balance, and at the same time, tighten the standard torque.
