need help torquing spacers

sorry if this is a dumb question but I am trying to be safe. So I have the torque wrench set on 105 and I am torquing down the spacers and the hub starts to turn. do I use something to keep it from turning snd tighten it as tight as can or what? this is my first time using a torque wrench. Thanks

Parking brake or have someone step on the brakes or leave one tire on the ground.

when using a TQ wrench it will make a LOUD pop or click when the set TQ has been reached

Becareful do not drop the TQ Wrench it will mess the calibration up.

You have a torque wrench right ? Set it and torque until it clicks.

Also make sure OP to back off the tension (0 ft lbs) when you are done with the torque wrench.
