How do I stop my drill bit from skating around on a tiled surface.
Last Updated: 05/05/2020
There are two popular methods for achieving this. One is to gently score the tile with a fine carbide pinch and lightweight balanced plastic mallet. The other method is to use masking or drywall tape. If you do not do this, the tile bit may skate around and damage the tile in a region that may not be concealed by the grab bar flange. This is just one small step that can be taken which can help contribute to a quality grab bar installation.
