There ARE ways to adapt an open-end to your torque wrench, but it's a huge PITA and not worth it, IMHO.

IMHO, the manufacturer is just trying to cover his ass... figure that if you've got a 12" long open end wrench, you want to put 12-24 lbs. of pressure on it, and that sounds like "real good" to me.
