Answer the poll, leave some comments! I know there is the rule of thumb to tighten hand tight then give a quarter inch turn with a tool to secure it.

We all know hand tight is different for different people smile.gif

No tools, but as tight as I can manage without tearing the flesh from my bones.

I hand tighten and finish with a combination wrench. If I can unscrew it with my bare hands, it's too loose. But that's just me, having the barbs so tight probably isn't necessary but I see it as bonus insurance.
