You MUST pre-drill ModWood Xtreme Guard decking prior to installing fasteners! Use a 4.8mm drill bit.

Corrosion Information: All metal fasteners have the potential to corrode. Fasteners used in corrosive environments and materials require higher levels of corrosion resistance. For applications exposed to salt air, near large bodies of salt water, swimming pools or other areas where corrosion is more likely to occur, always use grade 316 stainless steel. Approved for use with ACQ treated timber

Setting Screw Depth: Loosen Locking RRing (A) and set screw depth by moving the Adjustment Ring (B) to the desired position. The adjustment ring must engage at least two full threads of the tool body. Secure the Adjustment Ring (B) with Locking Ring (A). Check the depth by test on a piece of scrap material.

Correct Use: Use a standard drill; do not use an impact drriverr. Drill in a straight and stable fashion. The scrrew is set when the Auto-Stop mechanism engages fully (making a "pop" sound in most materials)

Replacing Driver Bit: Disconnect powerr an retract the tool fully; remove the bit with pliers. To insert a new bit, retract the tool fully and insert the bit all the way into the tool
