Answer

This Flex Bit Extension is intended for use with Klein Tools Flex Bit Augers 9/16'' (14 mm) and smaller (Klein model # 53716, 53717, and 53718). These Flex Bit Augers are made to drill through wood, not steel. Klein Tools does not recommend using more than 1 extension (approximately 9 ft. total length when attached to a Flex Bit Auger). If additional extensions are added there will not be enough torque to drill a hole.

The Bit and extension were not "FLEXIBLE" enough to allow access to the cap plate on a 9' ceiling...
The Bit and extension were not "FLEXIBLE" enough to allow access to the cap plate on a 9' ceiling from a standard 16" off the floor low voltage box. When attempting to get the "flex" angle needed to get bit inside the wall, the dual allen bolt arbor cracked and allowed the bit to bend. Returned item. VERY disappointing.

A 1/4" extension that doesn't accept 1/4" bits
Technically it's my fault for buying this, but shame on Klein for making it. Practically every spade/auger bit on the market for the last 5 years has a 1/4" hex shank. This is a 1/4" bit extension but it only accepts round bits. Come on Klein, get with the 21st century and make tools that meet people's needs. You can still overcharge us, but at least give us something that is usable.

When I bought this extension I also bought an 18"...
When I bought this extension I also bought an 18" bit that was sufficiently long to do the job. I intend to return the Klein tool the next time I return to Home Depot. There was no problem with the tool, I just did not need it..
