Icon Pan Rod Bar Question?

I installed the Icon pan rod bar last night. Install wasn't too hard. My question is, the torque value for the upper bolt was 400ft/lbs, who has a 400lb torque wrench? I went to sears and they didn't have one. I figure even if I did find one I couldn't push/pull hard enough to check 400lbs. I wrenched the hell out of that bolt but does anyone have any suggestions? Just want to make sure this thing holds together. Thanks for any help.

Look up torque multipliers on the Internet there's conversion charts for adding a crows foot to your torque wrench. I'd probably be happy with getting it really freakin tight but these things take a lot of stress so you might want to invest in a nice multiplier.
