Problem

The Black & Decker Workmate workbench is built for home DIY use, with a versatile design that can be assembled in several different configurations. These different configurations required multiple holes needed to be pre-tapped, although not all holes would be used depending upon the particular configuration chosen.

Solution

All pre-tapped holes and machine screws were replaced with DUO-TAPTITE® thread forming screws. These screws would let the end-use customer self-tap their own threads as needed.

Customer Benefit

Tapping costs were eliminated by using DUO-TAPTITE® screws, since they form their own thread. DUO-TAPTITE® screws also provided easy alignment for home do it yourself assembly, eliminating any chance of cross threading.
