wheel stud install question

The damn front wheel keeps spinning when I try to torque the stud.
What is the proper way to keep the hub from spinning around other than having someone hold the brake pedal?

THanks!

Wedge something between the brake pedal and the seat to hold the brake pedal down.

Wedge a long screw driver in the brake vanes against the shock mount or something. You don't need a lot of torque to install it.

I actually just threaded the studs hand tight then held one of the studs to keep the hub from spinning as I torqued them. Turner recomends torquing to 16ft lbs so yeah you don't need much torque at all.
