Work Smart: Tie One On

In every issue of Renovation Contractor we include a readers’ time-saving tip for getting the job done, and send them a great prize for sharing their idea. In our December 2017/January 2018 issue, John Estey of Hopewell Residential in Calgary shares this tight tip:

If you are using something like a Tapcon, without a sleeve, and it doesn’t quite have the bite you need I find it handy to have some tie wire on hand. I fold a length of wire in half and then secure it into my drill so I can twist it nice and tight. Put a few lengths of the newly twisted wire into your hole and it should give you all the bite you need.


Totally wired
