The Best Way To Bolt!



  • By squirt alone, you can tell which bolts are tight, which ones are not and why.
    All by eye without torque wrenches, match-marking or feeler gages.


    Specify it!

    Add the following statement to your structures bolting specification.

    "All High Strength Structural Bolts shall include an F959(M) Squirter DTI, quenched and tempered in accordance with ASTM F959 section 4.3.2, manufactured by Applied Bolting Technology, and installed and inspected, per their instructions."

Easier & Better than Turn-of Nut

  • You don't have to remember to stop turning at 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 turn.

  • No matching-marking necessary.

  • No need for a second set of hands to hold a spud wrench.

Better than a Twist-Off Bolt

  • Tension control rather than torque control.

  • No spline end to twist off and become a safety hazard.

  • No problems caused by the splined end shearing off in torsion before the plies are together.

Easier & Better than Calibrated Wrench

  • You don't have to establish and then check the torque resistance of bolts daily and for each lot and when your wrench condition changes.

Erector Benefits

  • Enables correct tensioning as fast as the wrench can be moved to the next bolt, because the operator can see when to stop.

  • The orange silicone is easy for erectors to see, so they don't need a feeler gage.

  • Erectors can show they have tightened all the bolts.

Inspector Benefits

  • Inspectors can easily see the orange Squirts™, they don't have to climb out to all the connections or lug around a torque wrench to know the connection has been completed.

  • And instead of sampling only some of the DTI's with a feeler gage, Squirter® DTIs allow virtually 100% inspection.
