a pic of your wrench would help but it sounds like you have what is refered to 'snap' torque wrench like this. is the head where you put the socket like a regular ratchet?
you simply use the top like anyother ratchet. you are acorrect you should never loosen a bolt/nut with a torque wrench
you dial in the torque with the guage in the handle and then simply tighten until the wrench snaps or clicks.
