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.


All pre-tapped holes and machine screws were replaced with 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 TAPTITE® screws, since they form their own thread. TAPTITE® screws also provided easy alignment for home do it yourself assembly, eliminating any chance of cross threading.
