Question How are you supposed to torque a fluid line?

When installing my stainless steel brake lines I noticed that they had torque specs on them, 12-24 foot-pounds. How are you supposed to torque fluid lines? Because they are a line, I simply can't put a socket over them and use my torque wrench, because there is no way a sockect can fit over a line.

Is there a special tool for this, or is the brake line manufactirer just trying to cover thier ass from someone who overtightens the lines and leaks brake fluid?

I just tightened the lines up "real good" and hoped it's close to the correct torque spec... I'll just be sure to check my brake fluid over the next few weeks.
