Torque spec for 60A Siemens breaker

What is torque spec for Siemens 60A breaker? Or what is common trade spec for breakers?

There is a label on the breaker that gives the torque specs. AWG 6-4 would be 45 lb-in and AWG 3-2/0 would be 50 lb-in. All I did was look at the picture of a 60A Siemens breaker on the HD website and enlarge the picture so I could read the label. The specs are for Cu-Al 75C wire

I would imagine they would have the torque specs listed on their website for the specific braker.
General rule of thumb (in school and in the field) was always until tight + 1/4 turn.
Using any sort of torque measuring device in a panel (especially live) is a bad idea. Just saying.
