    Looking to put a 100 straight pad adjuster onto my existing trap gun. I understand every thing except for the following. The 100 straight pad adjuster can be adjusted by one screw. To access this allen screw I will need to put a hole in my existing KickEZ pad. What is the best way to make this hole? Will a regular metal drill bit make a clean hole or is there a better method?

    Thanks,
    Craig

    cl3 hit on the head. Spray a little armorall on it before you drill it. Larry

    Use a Forstner bit to drill a shallow 3/4" hole from the spacer side 1" down from the top screw hole, then turn it over and, using a hollow, sharpened piece of tubing, drill out the letter "I" from the word KICK-EEZ. After adjusting your pad, you can insert the "I" and the hole will be invisible.

    Not to change the topic, but... I'm wondering if anyone else had this same problem with the 100 straight, through the pad, adjustable plates?

    It was easy enough for me to fit it to the gun, but with the black self adhesive anti-slip tape on, the "single adjustment screw" would only "catch" the other plate by a thread or two at most. And thats if I tourqed it on good. I just didn't have any confidence in that. I called the company and they said it was OK ???

    I didn't use the non-slip pad and have had no problems.
