Do not use the torque wrench to remove nuts. They are only meant for tightening.
Use a breaker bar for removal.
One thing I have not seen mentioned in the max rating of the torque wrench. I use a 250 ft-lb one, so I know it will never be overloaded with the possible result of lost accuracy.
And it is not a cheap one. You get what you pay for.

Quite correct....should have read "Nuts on"

OP buy a breaker bar also that fits the same drive as your Torque wrench, socket and extension.

They can be used for removing bolts/nuts, but I always set it to the max of 250 when removing bolts or nuts. According to Williams specs: Calibrated dual direction Positive Lock with spring loaded pull down lock ring. Fast, accurate and easy to set. Easy-to-read Laser marked scales. Quick Release buttons which provide good socket retention as well as easy socket removal. Accuracy: ± 4% clockwise ± 6% CCW of indicated value, CW, from 20% to 100% of full scale. Meets or exceeds ASME B107.14M-1994, ISO 6789 Standards.
