I used this kit to bleed out the entire braking system of my car and boy does it do a good job. I never knew it could be so simple and easy using such a simple and easy to use kit. I looked around for other kits and this was really the cheapest and probably the best one I could have chosen. If you are a DIY car mechanic then this will be a great buy.
I recommend this product!
I like:easy to "use".
I don't like as much:did not find any.

The Halfords Professional Torque Wrench is great for use with 3/8 inch square drive
 

How to store?

After you've finished using the wrench, can you just leave it on any torque setting, or should it be set to a specific setting to avoid any damage when not used for some time.
If there are no instructions in the pack to leave the torque wrench at a specified setting then it may be left in any setting you require. This item is best left in a clean and slightly oiled (with a good oil spray) condition. I would advise you to wind the setting to the minium setting as this will relieve any pressure on the torque mechanism and enhance the life of this valueable torque wrench..

Safe beyond the click?

When undoing a bolt, if the wrench clicks before the bolt starts to move, should I set the torque higher and re-try, or is it safe to keep going until the bolt is undone?
Can the wrench be damaged by continuing to pull harder after the click?
Every bolt or screw has a certain torque limit. If you exceed this limit you may end up damaging the bolt or screw or worse still, the bolt or screw may break. To answer your question, rather increase the torque wrench setting by a small margine at a time. Your chances of damaging the torque wrench will then be nil as you may cause damage by applying more force after the click. Do not exceed the maximum setting of the torque, rather use a spanner. The main function of a torque wrench is to ensure that the bolt or screw you are tightening is done to a specified torque setting.

Does this contain a one-way valve?

i.e. a one-way valve would mean when pumping the brake pedal, air won't be sucked in at the bleed valve.
Yes it does have a one-way valve that works very well.
