Last I knew, they are close to as accurate as snap on, for pennies on the dollar
Edit: Shoot, I could be thinking of Tekton

I own all three torque wrenches and the electronic torque gauge. I read that the electronic gauge was very accurate but i had a hard time trusting $10 torque wrenches. I used the electronic gauge to calibrate the mechanical torque wrenches. They work fine for the price. A little rough feeling when setting the torque but when using them to actually torque a bolt they click over fine and ratchet fine.

My guess is you're getting the quality you are paying for.

I used to calibrate torque wrenches for a living. Harbor Freight wrenches seldom passed calibration, and of those that failed many could not be adjusted to tolerance.

Your life will never be the same, now that you know HF is close by! Every time I visit the USA, I drop into one or two during my trip. I use the 20 percent coupons as well. I bring my wife and kids inside to get me some deals.

Here is the link to the coupons.
