An easy-to-use digital force gauge that is accurate in testing the push/pull force (tension and compression) of virtually any application. Complete with hook adapter for tension, plus flat head, cone head, and chisel head adapters for compression, 5" (120mm) extension rod, operation manual and carrying case. An indispensable tool for push/pull (tension/compression) measurements in a variety of industrial applications such as, tests on machines, electronic components, consumer products, sporting goods and medical equipment. They have also been used in failure mode analysis, quality control, breakdown tests and fatigue tests. Force gauges have become a necessary tool in product quality and consistency. Rugged and versatile, force gauges are used to take indoor and outdoor measurements, and in hard to reach areas. All models are ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand and are easy to manipulate with one hand. Most models are also adaptable for test stand use which facilitates precise and repetitive tension and compression testing.
