I know it isn't the correct way but i check mine every so often with a friends that i know is calibrated since he is a mechanic. I put mine in a bench vice with an Allen wrench socket in it and take my friends with the appropriate standard socket that will fit the Allen wrench. Set them to the same torque and see if the break loose at the same time. It at least tells me if they still work. I have never had one be off enough to mess with.
