Closing the hatch on the Ares 1-X upper stage

Apparently they just broke a torque wrench that is used to close a hatch on the Ares 1-X dummy upper stage and now they have to get a spare to close the hatch. Right now they are running about 30 minutes late but apparently this is not going to affect the planned launch time of 8am East Coast time.
