This insert is not made for wood. For wood you need the "elco female panelmate flush". It consists of a 1/4"x about 1 1/2" screw part on the bottom with a 3/4 to 1" female insert at the top. Will require predrilling twise. First a 3/16 by 2 1/2" for the screw then an 1" or so on top of that for the insert. Or it might be a drill bit that does both with one try. And yes. You can't use it on plywood. You have to install it close enough to the window to hit the stud. The middle of it.
7/16 Masonry bit
It all depends on the size of the opening you are trying to cover. Refer to the engineering / installation materials at the mfg web site. I have some at 6 inches and others at 10.
it depends what underneath the vinyl siding. These are specifically designed to be used in concrete cinder block, etc. There are other fasteners for wood which is what I imagine you would have and therefore you need those
They can only be used in masonry. The bolt is 1/4 -20 threads. I believe they have anchors that are available for wood thought.
It is a good bit and worked as expected. I like the hex end for a no slip when in use.
I think you may be confusing the hardware descriptions. Clips come with the eight screws. You only need one anchor per Clip and the anchor assembly includes the stainless steel attachment bolt.
A 7/16" masonry drill bit is correct. The anchor is 2 1/8" long, so drill the hole slightly deeper and be sure to blow out the drilling debris.
I am pretty sure they can't. On a veneer home they want you to use the wood anchors. You can check by calling them.
