FastCap Qwikdraw Pull CounterTops Tight Without Routing
Now you don’t need a router when mitering or joining countertops. FastCap’s Qwikdraw connectors require no routing or drilling to achieve a tight joint, and they automatically create a smooth top surface (assuming that material thicknesses are consistent.)Using Qwikdraw’s embossed centerline, align the halves to bridge the underside of the countertop joint, then fasten them along both edges using six #6 x 5/8" flat head screws per 3". (Note that the QwikDraw halves must be separated before they are screwed down.) Once fastened, use mini or micro sized pistol-grip, squeeze-type clamps with FastCap clamp pads (the red jaw pads on the clamps shown in use) to grasp the edges of the Qwikdraw halves and pull them together. The FastCap clamp pads replace the factory pads on most popular squeeze-type clamps and have small grooves at the tips which mate with the edges of the QwikDraw plates – they are essential to ensure proper installation. Once clamped, secure the tightly joined countertop with screws fastened through the remaining “fingers”. Qwikdraw strips are roughly 3-1/4" wide when installed but just 1/8" thick; they are easily cut with a hand or power saw at 3" marks for use with smaller parts. Each 3" long section requires 6 screws. Overall length: 12". Imported.
