That’s a good question to ask. Aeroquip has a nice explanation right here:
The easiest way to remember, and the one I use, is the Alternate 1/4 turn method. They don’t mention oiling the threads, but it’s good insurance against galling.
1. Oil the threads with a couple drops of lightweight machine oil (air tool oil is perfect)
2. Hand tighten
3. Turn 1/4 turn with a wrench.
