Many injuries can be caused by slipping ratchet heads on torque wrenches especially when high torque values are required. These injuries can be minimised by repairing the wrench as soon as the slipping ratchet is noticed. The slipping of the ratchet will only increase in frequency the longer it is left in service, increasing the possibility of injury to the user. Ratchet repair kits are available for most well-known brands of torque wrenches, but be aware that for some of the cheaper brands of torque wrenches, ratchet repair kits are not available.
