Best Answer

Its tighter than finger tight, but not as tight as torqued on. Its tight enough that the bolt or nut wont loosen in regular use.

Actually, what is probably a more inclusive answer would be:

The 2004 RCSC Specification defines a snug-tightened joint as a joint in which the bolts have been installed in accordance with Section 8.1." Note that no specific level of installed tension is required to achieve this condition, which is commonly attained after a few impacts of an impact wrench or the full effort of an ironworker with an ordinary spud wrench. The plies should be in firm contact, a condition that means the plies are solidly seated against each other, but not necessarily in continuous contact.
