If they're new a torque wrench may be all you need.

of course you've checked they're on the right way round..?
Just do them up real tight and make sure they're well seated. You don't
need a torque wrench.

all i know is with my old pos uni the left crank (the one i put pressure
on to mount) would loosen itself in an instant no matter how much you
tightened it, but one small split-washer fixed that.  never had trouble
with the other crank, but i never put it through the same type of abuse
so stands to reason.

I've had the same problem with my right crank for the past year or so.

My advice is don't worry about it, it doesn't really matter and doesn't
loosen all the way.

But if you fix this problem, do inform :p
