Q:Tapcon says to use a 7/16" bit for their 1/2" anchors -- is this 1/2" or 7/16"?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi DR, This is a 1/2" diameter drill bit. 1/2" Tapcon+ anchors require a 1/2" hole for installation. If you have further questions, please reach out to our team at 877-489-2726. Thank you!

    Answer This Question

    A:  You might be able to get it to, but I would suggest getting one of the bits designed for regular (non-SDS) drills. They're less expensive, and made for that type of drill.

    A:  If it’s a 1/2” chuck sure... If it’s not a hammer drill it’ll be labor intensive and will not work efficiently as it should Probably break from pushing it with too much force to get it too drill

      A:  It will work, just not as fast. If you intend to do a lot of drilling, I’d spend a little extra money and get a hammer drill if you plan on doing much drilling, though. The difference in effort is significant.

      A:  SDS drill bits are meant to be used with drills that have an SDS chuck, namely rotary hammers. Standard hammer drills with a three jaw chuck will need an adapter in order to be used with an SDS bit.

                  Q:I am going to install a Tapcon 1/4" x 3 1/4" screw. The packaging recommends a 3/16" x 5 1/2" Tapcon drill bit. I am buying an SDS hammer drill and understand that it requires these special SDS drill bits... this 7" length is the only one I can find in 3/16". Now I see another complication because this drill bit has two different choices of diameter size!!! I thought the diameter size was 3/16". What diameter size do I need to order for the Tapcon screw I am installing???

                  A:  I used a plain ol' battery operated 3/8" drill to make the hole in the wall. I bought the bit size the tapcon anchor package said to buy. I would read the data on the anchor package and see what it says about the correct bit to use.

                    A:  Hi, I drilled 3/16 holes in brick and the 1/4 Tapcon screw went right in with a cordless hammer drill. I just used a generic 3/16 Craftsman masonry bit, no fancy SDS needed.

                      A:  Drill bits come in many different size. Get the recommended size for the Tapcon you are using.

                      by|Mar 5, 2019

                        A:  If you are installing a 1/4" x 3-1/4" Tapcon screw, use a 3/16" x 7" SDS Tapcon drill bit. The part number for this drill bit is 11491. In the green square on the right side of the label, it will say "For Use With 1/4" Dia. Tapcon Anchors". The 7" length is okay. You don't have to drill to a depth equal to the length of the drill bit.

                          A:  The carbide tip is made to produce a hole that is 3/16 inch diameter. This is the required diameter for the 1/4 inch diameter Tapcon screw. The other diameter mentioned is .1875 inches, which is the same size. 3/16 (Fraction) .1875 (Decimal)
