How to Tighten AN Fittings: Flats Method

A torque wrench just typically isn’t a practical in many automotive situations. Fortunately, the design of AN fittings allows for a technique often referred to as the “Flats Method.” Many installers & engineers actually prefer this method over the torque method because it eliminates variables in friction due to material finish treatments and is more useful in field settings.

Step 1: Lube the fittings – This step is one of the most overlooked. Use Earl’s assembly lube or equivalent. Place a dab on the threads prior to hand assembly. This will prevent galling of the fitting and provide a quality seal. Any petroleum based lube is better than assembling a dry fitting.

Step 2: Assemble the fittings – Screw down the female nut until finger-tight. At this point the seat is making contact. You can double-check by trying to wiggle the tube portion of the female fitting. You should not be able to see any movement. If you see visible movement, tighten the nut again while wiggling the tube. If the nut won’t turn any further by hand, look for dirt and debris in the threads that may be the reason why the nut stopped short.

Step 3: Mark the fittings – Use a permanent marker to, draw a line on one flat of the hex on the male fitting and a matching line on the female hex nut (the two lines should line up). This is your reference mark.

Step 4: Tighten the fittings – Using a wrench, tighten the female nut 1/4 turn of a full revolution, or 1.5 hex flats. Check your reference marks to verify that the nut has been tightened 1/4 turn.

Step 5: Mark the fittings again – Using a permanent marker, make a new reference mark from the female nut to the hex on the male fitting. The offset original mark acts as a visual reference that the connection has been tightened. The new mark is also a visual reference that the fitting is still tight. If this second mark becomes misaligned, it means the fitting is coming loose.

If reusing fittings remove the reference marks to avoid any confusion. (Brake cleaner is works well for removing “permanent” ink!) This is why we use a marker instead rather than scribing the marks.
