The Navy has developed a simple, cost-effective solution to use torque wrenches on electronics and other small connectors in hard-to-reach places.

The Navy has developed and tested a patent-pending technology to properly torque electrical and other small connectors and nuts in difficult-to-reach locations. Current solutions are designed for bigger nuts in automotive and other larger-scale mechanical settings.

Manufacturers of subminiature version A (SMA) and other small electronics connectors produce torque wrenches designed for specific uses of a given connector product.

However, the wrenches frequently are unable to reach a connector once the connector is incorporated into a device and installed in a system.

The Navy’s crowfoot adapter provides an economical solution to reduce or eliminate the need for disassembly in order to reach such connectors.
