Howm much tension on adj STB?

Just wondering for a daily driver howmuch tension inwards or outwards you put on an adjustable Strut tower brace?
I bought the UMI one over Xmas and I'm putting it on tomorrow.

I'm picturing very little outward (pushing on the towers)

I usually jack the car up by the k member and let the suspension hang. Then mount it. When it's back on the ground it's slightly preloaded. Then if you need to remove it, jack it up the same way and it comes right off.
