Usually, the common tool used for Gland Nuts has been a pipe wrench. While they will tighten or loosen KONI style Gland Nuts, everything the Pipe Wrench touches gets gouged (including the top of your strut housing if you're not careful), and basically you tighten it until you "feel" it is tight enough. This specialty tool is great for tightening the gland nut included with the Koni Struts to the proper torque specification (which is 89 ft-lbs). It also makes removing the Gland Nut easier. Torque Wrench and Gland Nut not included!

Additional Tools (not included):
In addition to a foot-pound specific torque wrench, you will also need a 2mm or 7/32" Allen Key(wrench) and a second set of hands (see note below). Depending on the drive of your torque wrench, a 3/8" drive to 1/2" drive adapter may also be required (the tool has a 1/2" drive opening).

Operation Notes:
While these types of tools are more precise than a Pipe Wrench, they are not the equivalent of tightening a bolt with a socket. If you haven't used one of these previously, having a buddy to help hold everything in place while you torque is a good idea. The wrench does not "lock" into the designed holes in the Gland Nut, so care must be taken to not have the tool "pop out" of the Gland Nut holes while tightening or loosening the nut. Even so, there is much less chance of damage with this tool as there is with a Pipe Wrench, and the ability to actually set these nuts to the proper torque is an important benefit. The pins are reversible for other applications. Using the set screws, set the height of the pins to where the body of the tool is flush on the top of the Gland Nut.
