You have to modify the wrench.
Basically just cut the end off. I think if you plan carefully, you only lose 1 slot of engagement.
I have two nut wrenches. One that I've left alone for factory tight, and another that I've modified this way to keep the scopes on.
I wouldn't use a modified one on a factory tight nut.
