Explanation:
Schmidt/Pons – Fachwörterbuch der Kfz-Technik shows a "click type torque wrench (AE) spanner (BE)" = micrometer (type) torque wrench (AE) spanner (BE)= automatic cut-out torque wrench (AE) spanner (BE) = break-away torque wrench (AE) spanner (BE) (rare) = clutch type torque wrench (AE) spanner (BE) (rare) = automatischer Drehmomentschlüssel = selbstauslösender Drehmomentschlüssel = einstellbarer Drehmomentschlüssel = Signaldrehmomentschlüssel to be a torque wrench/spanner designed to apply a pre-determined torque. It is preset to a desired torque setting and will release automatically once the setting has been reached. Release action is normally accompanied by an audible click and/or visible signal. I think I would choose " "automatischer Drehmomentschlüssel".
