One thing you can do is lock it up finger tight.It does not have to be done real tight as it will tighten as you use it.
Its a misnomer to believe you gotta lock it up real tight, this only causes problems when trying to remove it.
I have 5 chucks I routinely change on my three lathes.Locking them up by hand lightly, unlocking with slightly more force. As they are all SN2 chucks I use the tee bar wrench. I use the same on my Longworth chucks 12" and 24" dia bolted on to face plates.
