    For those of you with the Tekton torque wrench, do you just hand tighten the lock knob on the bottom or do you use pliers to tighten it? Mine comes loose almost every time Iím using it. Also, while Iím asking, anyone else had issues with the lock knob on the bottom being able to back all the way out and not stopping anymore?

    I donít think youíre supposed to ever use pliers with a torque wrench. I donít have an issue with mine. I would guess your hand is twisting the setting knob with is making you believe the lock knock is loosening up.

    I would have never thought so if it didnít come loose every time I use it. Could be user error.
