Crows foot on the torque wrench is the "correct" way. Check your local Sears for crows foot attachments.

Note: If you mount it on the wrench so that it is 90-degrees to one side, then you don't have to recalculate the torque, just set the wrench and go. If you leave it sticking strait out the end of the wrench then you will need to recalculate the torque based on the new leverage-length of the wrench.
