General AceClamp Related FAQ's
Most of my installers use hammer drills – they are faster than power screw guns.
We don’t recommend tightening the AceClamps with hammer drills. AceClamps are designed with anti-backout features so that vibrations common to wind flutter along coastal regions and seismic activity on the west coast preventing AceClamps from loosening. The action of a hammer drill may damage the locking mechanisms allowing the clamp to loosen over time.
