Flex Bit Safety Tips and Warnings:

  • Always use two hands on your power drill.
  • Always use safety glasses.
  • Always locate hidden wiring in the wall and in blind areas.
  • Always locate plumbing.
  • Always turn off all power and water to the work area

Using Flex Bits:

  • When using Switch Bits, Adapters and Extensions, make sure set screw faces flat side of shank.
  • Never overtighten a Switch Bit set screw. "Snug is Good."
  • To prevent binding, reverse the bit a little ways, then drill in again.
  • A Flex Bit Placement Tool helps bend the Flexible Bit, positioning the Drill Bit inside the wall (or ceiling) cavity.

Standard wall framing is 16 from center of a 2x4 to center of the next 2x4. Most drill bits will not fit between the framed sections with a standard hand drill so a straight hole is impossible to drill.

The Switch Bit Hex Adaptor (Quick Switch), and the hand drill measure an average of 14 and will fit between the 2x4s to make a straight hole.
