    Stick with a torque wrench. Not worth the liability if the torque extension is off.

    The best place for these extensions is leave them at the parts house. Had four new tires mounted on '03 PT Cruiser and developed a rubbing type noise that was real noticible as you pulled up to a light. Thinking that the shoes or pads were in bad shape, I started looking. The lug nuts were so tight that I had to literally jump on the end of an 18" breaker bar to loosen them. I weigh over 200 pounds. These puppies were that tight!!! Forget the "torque limiters" and stick to the torque wrench. I found the shoes and pads were in great shape, so I put the wheels back on--by hand torquing. Guess what--no more noise. The car drove and sounded like it should have, and did before the tire shop got ahold of it.
