Converting foot #'s to inch #'s?

Does anyone know how to convert foot pounds to inch pounds? My foot pound torque wrench starts at 25#. I have bolts I need to torque that are less than 25#. I do have an inch pound torque wrench if I could only be sure of the conversion.

As always, this has been the most reliable and quickest place to find the correct info. Thanks all!!

To convert ft# to in#, Take the ft # value and multiply it by 12 to obtain the inch# value. Ex: 1 ft# = 12 in#, 35ft# = 420 in#.

In reverse, To convert in# to ft#, divide the in# value by 12.
