What Are The Instructions?  You need to make sure the Half Time Drill Driver is centered and well secured in the drill chuck.  Then be sure that the blue collar is in place and locked over the bit holder before using.  It's important to note the drill bits are not designed for drilling metal or masonry.

Once you're ready to go, insert the hex shaft of the Half Time Drill Driver into the chuck of a corded or cordless drill.  Ensure that the unit is centered in the chuck. Tighten the drill chuck to secure the Half Time Drill Driver.  Loosen one of the thumb nuts and insert the chosen drill/driver bit into the Half Time Drill Driver.  Tighten the thumb nut to ensure it does not loosen.  Slide the collar back toward the drill and rotate the head of the unit so that the drill bit is exposed.  Slide the collar toward the head of the unit to lock it into place . 

Be sure that the collar is in place and secured before use.  Drill hole.  Slide the collar back toward the drill, and rotate the head of the unit so that the driver bit is exposed.  Slide the collar back toward the head of the unit.  Be sure that the collar is in place and secured before use.  Drive screw into pre-drilled hole.

It's important to note that an Allen Wrench is included to adjust drill bit length. 

Did it work? Our tester was pretty impressed.  He's been working with tools for years and he says the Half Time Drill Driver lives up to its name.
