Product Details

The Apache200 3/4 in. Drill Bit is made with industrial carbide to bore through dense material so you can quickly and easily install WingIts fasteners. This sharply pointed bit won't wander or chatter as you drill through ceramic wall tile, masonry board, marble, steel, glass and plaster, making precise, clean cuts for your fastening jobs. Unlike a hole saw, this drilling accessory won't accrue plugged material so you can use it repeatedly without having to discard hole remnants from the bit.
  • Designed to drill up to 200 holes through ceramic tile; longer life expectancy on softer materials
  • Doesn't drift during start-up; just pull the drill trigger and let it do the work
  • Recommended for marble, ceramic wall tile, lath, plaster, masonry board, glass, steel
  • Constructed with industrial-grade carbide for dependable use
  • Note: some imported wall tiles are too dense for this device to penetrate

A:  Grainger sells a kit of 3 of these bits. Theirs say porcelain. So I imagine if you go slow and easy you should be ok.

    A:  I forgot to add the link, for my answer above: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Glacier-Bay-36-in-x-1-1-4-in-Concealed-Screw-ADA-Compliant-Grab-Bar-in-Brushed-Stainless-Steel-20135-032

      A:  WingIt's sell their own grab bars. If the gauge of the WingIt's bolt is comparable to 3/16" or 1/4", (t's probably a #10), then you're fine with any Grab Bar. What you're really asking is what is the diameter on the mounting hole on a Grab Bar and what is the gauge of the bolt or screw. If in doubt, then buy some everbilt toggle bolts, they have Truss Heads that are great when the GB hole turns out to be larger than expected. As soon as you buy your GB's, all will be revealed.

      A:  I bought a Glacier Bay (20135-03202-36) which specified Wing-It compatible on the box. The Store SKU (240826) is the easiest # to search on HD app/website - then just choose desired length.

        A:  I don’t remember the brand of grab bar I used but it was nothing specific for WingIt anchors. I used a grab bar based on the length I needed. I installed the grab bar on tile and it was as secure as if I screwed into studs. Fantastic anchor, I will definitely use again.

          A:  I'd give you a very firm "probably", as they are designed to go through ceramic/porcelain tiles. However, you can buy a set of assorted sized carbide glass and tile bits for less than the cost of this bit.

          A:  tried it on ceramic tile .could not even get one hole done and it broke the bit and cracked the tile

              This bit easily cut thru my ceramic tiles At first the cut was very clean and even, but it wobbled a little in the end. I tried slow & fast speed and even rotated the drill, but it still chaffed and dug into the tile more than I wanted to. I still liked it and recommend it. If you're careful, you can even use the bit to cut a smaller hole into the tile surface and use a regular twist drill to finish the hole. Use a piece of painters tape on the spot so you can mark the center and the bit won't walk.

              Wingits are best invention I've seen for a while. Very strong. Need to make distinction between Porcelain and Ceramic tile. Ceramic needs a diamond hole saw and cannot be drilled with Apache bit.
