So I have a 10.5 LMT SBR Upper.

I've ground off the FSB and reattached it as my gas block

Installing a DD Lite 10" rail.

Once I install the rail, it protrudes just to the point that it covers the wrench flats on my YHM QD Flash hider.  

I can screw on the FH by hand just fine but the wrench flats to torque this thing down are covered by the rail.

My question:

Could I use a strap wrench to get the necessary torque I need for a proper install of the FH?


Bonus question-does it matter if the wrench flats aren't aligned straight vertical or horizontal?  According to the instructions-it just says clean the threads, torque to spec and you're golden.

Thanks


This is my first build.

you should be GTG using a strap wrench if you are able to get enough contact on the muzzle.  The torque isn't that much on these so good and snug is fine.

yeah i am very glad that i checked online before i put mine on, I seen anywhere from 15-30 ft lbs max, which surprised me a lot. One thing you need to look for is that if it needs to be oriented any certain way. I have a comp/brake, so mine had to be leveled just right to work as intended. I wouldnt think that a flash suppressor would need to be "clocked" but I dont know that.

Yes-nowhere in the instructions does it mention this thing having to be timed/oriented a certain way.   I just want to make sure I'm doing it right. Probably over thinking it.
