The Crankl is a torque wrench that is designed to be used in order to secure your bike's tightening components appropriately.

Developed by British inventor Tom Lawrie-Fussey, the Crankl is superior to other torque wrenches available on the market because it is designed to be capable of performing hundreds of procedures without suffering lasting damage. It also has a different indication system to convey to users when the appropriate amount of torque is reached -- rather than simply tightening in place, the Crankl's body crinkles, at which point you know it's time to stop turning the wrench.

Expected to be sold for only around $1.30, the torque wrench could be a useful tool for cyclists who prefer to avoid going into the cycle mechanic's shop for every little problem.
