Its tighter than finger tight, but not as tight as torqued on.

Its tight enough that the bolt or nut wont loosen in regular


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.
