Consider me fucking retarded if you want to, because I probably am, but how do I get this thing inside a wooden frame? There's no way you're supposed to hammer it in there, right? But you can't use a screwdriver either.

>> No.1757280

Hold it with fingers or pliers and push it while screwing it inside the wood.

>> No.1757281

Or use a small drill bit and start a very shallow pilot hole to start turning it easier.

>> No.1757295

Once you got it started, you can stick a screw driver through the loop to turn it with extra leverage. Probably unnecessary though.

>> No.1757302

vice grips.

>> No.1757316

I use a screw and screwdriver to create a small hole then screw it in by hand or with pliers

>> No.1757320

is this bait ?

you take a drill smaller than your hook. you make a hole with said drill. you take the hook and bring it in the hole by pushing and rotating.

>> No.1757326

It would've been bait if I owned a drill, yeah.

>> No.1757330

you need a special tool for that.
it's called a circle driver.
usually only people that have one of those in the toolbox are guys that build those roundabout traffic circles, and bakers that specialize in donuts.
better hope you the cops don't catch you carrying one though.

>> No.1757348

Yes you are retarded. Just tap it with something and then screw it in with your fingers. Jesus christ

>> No.1757350

dont say the r word.
these people are known for being unable to measure their force, just bee cool and let him pass the board as soon as possible

>> No.1757353

/diy/ - special people with special needs.

>> No.1757361

Then use a small nail to make a pilot hole.

>> No.1757380

So THAT's what those are for.

>> No.1757390

The scary part is that this very well could be a legitimate post, not someone shitposting.
