PRO PLUG® SYSTEM for Wood combines the strength of top-down fastening with the high-end finish of face grain wood plugs. This comprehensive system allows deck builders to drill, screw, glue and plug all types of hardwoods in a fraction of the time required for traditional plug fastening methods. All of the Pro Plug System components have been carefully and precisely engineered to maximize performance and provide the best finished result. The system features face grain wood plugs, stainless fasteners, a pre-drilling and counter-boring tool and a glue nozzle that applies glue to the sidewalls of the counter-bored hole.[divider][divider]
Pro Plug Tool for Wood – Product Features
FREE SPINNING STOP COLLAR WITH O-RING
The stop collar spins free of the drill and counterbore assembly, and is fitted with a rubber o-ring that prevents damage to the board surface. The hole is complete when the stop collar stops spinning.
The case hardened counterbore portion of the tool is designed to perfectly match the geometry of the System’s specially designed fasteners and plugs.
Drill bits feature Powerbolic fluting, which cuts through decking and flooring more than twice as fast as standard wood bits, even dense hardwoods. The Tool also comes packaged with a spare stub bit, designed for plug-only installations (with no fasteners).
In addition to the Pro Plug Tool for Wood and a Decking/Flooring Kit, installation requires a power drill, a power sander, wood glue and a plastic or wood mallet. (Pro tip: for best results, and to prolong the life of the Pro Plug Tool, use a corded drill). Note: The Pro Plug System for Wood consists of several parts designed to work together as a system. All of these parts must be used together, as instructed, to ensure proper function. For a pdf containing detailed installation instructions (also included with every kit), see the DOWNLOADS section above.
