Adjusting lockout on through axle

The locknut on my 2019 Trek Stash's rear through hub loosened up on me. I tried to tighten it, but need to get a 19mm cone wrench before I can do it correctly. The hub has precision bearings. I noticed the feel is totally different than ball bearings. How do I know how tight to cinch down the nuts?

Pretty much the same way...no play but not too tight that it has drag or feels a little rough.

Thanks. It seems like it should be pretty straight forward. It sure feels different from bearings and cones - I'm thinking it's probably a bit easier and more forgiving. I'm waiting on my 19mm cone wrench to be delivered to know for sure.
