Some of the cheaper light duty torque wrenches won't click at light settings. They just have a very faint break-away that you almost can't feel. I actually prefer beam style for my light duty stuff. There are good 80 inch pound beam wrenches on Amazon for 20 to 30 bucks.

But you need 144 inch pounds on these jug nuts and studs...lol.
I have a light duty 3/8 drive for that. Range from 10 to 50 ft-lbs. I have about 11 different types of torque wrenches because of my work though. One that goes up to 500ft-lbs that cost more than my dual sport. 🙄

It must have a torque multiplier to get to 500. We had those in the mill.

Nugget of wisdom: Any spring-loaded torque wrench that uses a spring should be set to 0 when not in use. If not over time the spring can stretch and lose its memory for accuracy.
