There are many other ways to follow them. You should not have the need for the torque wrench. There are other many tools and you can also tight them by using the other tools they are maybe common tools that we use in our daily life.

The detail of the tools and their names and the way of working means that the proper procedure how to use them for the tighten purpose each and everything discussed below:

Using a crossbar wrench

The crossbar wrench has the shape of the cross sign as it has the name crossbar. Here the main discussion is that here we use the crossbar wrench; the crossbar wrench is used instead of the torque wrench.

You remove the nuts from the tire by using the crossbar wrench by twisting it counterclockwise and applying the force by standing on the left side of the tire.

Apply the force that is easily applied by you means you do not apply as much force that is harmful to your health because the sudden jerk you may be bare and maybe fall.

When you open the punctured tire, you should replace it with another using the crossbar wrench.

Take the other tire from the car and place it at the place from where you have separated the other tire; after setting the tire to that place, you should place the nuts by using your fingers, and if they are in the condition that they are tight easily by the wrench, you should try the wrench and tight it.

This is the procedure. By following this procedure, you should have come to know how you use the crossbar wrench instead of the torque wrench, and it is possible to use it as the replacement of the torque wrench.

Using the Extendable breaker bar

Here you should use the extendable breaker bar instead of the breaker bar. This procedure is may also the same as the above crossbar wrench. This is a difference in shape just. It is an extendable tool that can be extended as you want to use, you can extend and you can also close it.

You extend it as you want the length to work from it but not more because it may get flexible or reach the ground in these two states; it does not work.

By using this, you should open the tire by setting it in the place of the nuts that are in the tire when you set you to twist it and remove the nuts from the tire and replace the tire.

Now you should have to less the extension of the breaker bar and then place the tire and tight first the nuts from the hand and then by the breaker bar.

Please tighten the nuts as hard enough as you can because the tire works well if the nuts are tightened very hard.

My advice is to use the breaker bar always in the short length because the short length requires less amount of force applied to it, and the nuts are tightened very easily in a short time; you do not take enough time and also enough force.

Using your hands

using your hands

This is a very difficult thing to tighten the nuts by using your hands. You have to require much force that you used to tighten the nuts on your hands as it is difficult. It also can not be good for a long time and the speed.

Place the tire on the spot, and you should start tightening it by using your hands here, you should tight as much as you can.

Hand tightening is not good for the tire because the tire gets loose if it is not tightened completely.

The hands have the strength but not as enough as the tools have the strength to tighten the nuts. As the nuts are tightened by the tools, they are not tightened by the hands.
