patented technology greatly increases reliability by using the
patented whole echo method. All other bolt gages use just "One
Point", that leaves you susceptible to peak jumping.
We are not implying that SureBolt is the perfect tension measuring
device. The perfect device has not been invented yet. SureBolt is the
most reliable nondestructive method we know of to date. SureBolt is a
dramatic improvement over all other bolt gages. SureBolt works on
weaker signals and even uses lower ultrasonic frequencies to improve
No hidden information. You see it all and record it all.
Bolt gages have been around for over 20
years. Their "Peak Jumping"
problems have kept them from being widely used. When your bolted joint
fails or flange leaks, then you find out your bolt gage may have
With a lot of training and laboratory testing, NASA has used bolt
gages for years. NASA physically takes Polaroid pictures of the echoes
before and after tensioning. Then they use their trained human
experience to determine if the echo has distorted
"too-much". Even after all
this, they have to throw away approximately one third of the
measurements because they are not reliable. When NASA used the
SureBolt prototype, no measurements had to be thrown away.
Hidden information. Only records "One Point".
When something goes wrong, what caused it?
Prove to safety that you took a reliable tension reading. If the bolt
breaks or comes loose, you have proof that your tension data was based
on a non-distorted, or distorted echo. Therefore easier to investigate
what really caused the problem.
Cannot prove to safety or your boss. If the bolt
breaks, it may have been a good or distorted echo, but you have no way
of proving it. Therefore harder to investigate errors.

Demo unit (if available) with full warrantee.
Includes Toughbook laptop and latest SureBolt version.
Short term lease plans let you make sure the unit is best for you,
before you buy. Save on taxes: Many businesses can write off the cost of a
unit in one year if they lease instead of buy. One lease example: you
could lease SureBolt for 90 days, and before the first 30 days you exercise your
option to buy, your whole lease cost will be 100% applied toward the final
purchase price. Call for options.

Let us know how we can be of service to you. We will be glad to
discuss your custom bolting application with you. If SureBolt is
applicable, we will discuss with you the exact approach to get the most
accurate and reliable tension measurements.
You will NOT be contacted by a salesman. Only an experienced
application engineer. We want to understand all the applications where
SureBolt can be useful. Therefore, one of our SureBolt design engineers
will call you (if that is what you suggest in your comments), or email you
an answer to your questions. Only give us the information you want us to
