turn the base and set it to your desired torque ammount. attach socket to wrench and tighten bolt till the wrench clicks, when it clicks its at the specified setting. remember, dont tighten the bolt then put the torque wrench on it.

Set the bottom to whatever value is listed on the manual, tighten bolt until you hear a click and your done. Make sure you lossen the bolt first, you won't believe how much you have been overtightening.

You may need to twist it several revolutions to get the correct value. One revolution of the handle = 5 ft-lbs.

Like they said.

Or you can take your bike to the shop and just have them put an air wrench on everything.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Make sure you bring your wrench back down to zero everytime or wreck the torque wrench.
