The drill/driver has a keyless chuck which allows you to hand tighten or loosen accessory bits
without the use of a chuck key.
1. Grasp and hold the rear chuck collar with one hand (see Fig. 7).
2. Rotate the front of the chuck with your other hand, clockwise (as viewed from the front
of the chuck), to CLOSE the chuck jaws and tighten ("GRIP") the accessory bit in the jaws.
3. Rotate the front of the chuck counterclockwise to OPEN the chuck jaws to loosen
("RELEASE") the accessory bit from the chuck jaws (see Fig. 7a).
NOTE: ON THE VERY FRONT OF THE CHUCK there are "HANDS" that point the
direction to rotate the front of the chuck to "GRIP" or "RELEASE" the accessory

Do not hold the chuck body with one hand and use the power of the
drill / driver to tighten the chuck jaws on the accessory bit. The chuck body could slip in
your hand, or your hand could slip and come in contact with the rotating accessory bit.
This could cause an accident resulting in serious personal injury.
BUBBLE LEVELS (Fig. 8 an 8a)
In order to insure a perfect
Fig. 8
right angle when drilling/driving
into a workpiece, you can use
the built-in bubble level on the
back of the drill / driver
(see Fig. 8). The bubble level
is designed to work when
drilling / driving in either a
horizontal or vertical position.
Line the air bubble up in the
appropriate circle, and the
drill/driver is in a perpendicular
angle to the workpiece. This
will insure that you drill/drive
Align Bubble Level
straight into the workpiece.

15 PLUS 1 ADJUSTABLE TORQUE CLUTCH (Fig. 9, 9a and 9b)
This drill / driver is equipped with an adjustable clutch that has 16 different torque settings.
These torque settings allow you to efficiently perform various drilling and screw driving
applications. To adjust the clutch, hold the handle of the drill / driver with one hand and with
the other hand turn the clutch collar to the left or right (see Fig. 9), and line the desired setting
(number or symbol) up to the embossed arrow on the top of the drill/driver's motor housing
(see Fig. 9a).

1. For normal drilling in wood, metal and plastics, turn and set the collar to the drilling
position symbol
2. For screw driving, turn and set the collar to the desired setting 1 through 15. If you are
not sure of the appropriate setting using the guidelines in the chart (Fig. 9b),
proceed as follows;
• Set the collar to the lowest setting, "1"
• Drive and tighten the first screw
• If the clutch ratchets before the screw is tightened, increase the torque setting and
continue to tighten the screw.
• Repeat this process until you reach a torque setting that drives and tightens the screw

without the clutch ratcheting.
for Horizontal drilling
• Use that torque setting to drive and tighten the remaining screws.
