Is 3/8" the diameter of the tapered plug, or of the rounded head? If it's the plug, what is the diameter of the head?
Asked by: GingerCarpenter
Hi Ginger, 3/8" is the diameter of the tapered plug. We do not specify the diameter of the head. It is used to cover the plug for better appearance. Hope this helps.

Of course if they are the same it will not fit. I use a 25/64 drill bit and its a perfect fit. Just a size up from 3/8.
