Thanks,

looks like nate answered for ya, honestly i didnt know!!! i use the clicker in my elbow at work....it clicks when my air ratchet hits the proper torque

But on a serious note, glad to see you ask, because you should torque ANYTHING by hand if you are at all unsure of how tight it really should be. Many problems have been caused by a guy that didnt know better not torquing something. I take that for granted sometimes workin on them everyday and just knowing what things should be at tightness wise....:burnout
