The Quik Drive auto-feed system is a significantly faster way to install screws. There’s a Quik Drive kit for almost every application from truck beds to sub floors to drywall installation thanks to the range of fittings and screws.
It’s ergonomic design allows the installation of screws into walls, ceilings and floors without the need for bending, stretching or crouching. Which means not only can the system operate for hours at a time, so can you.
