Simpson Strong-Tie Quik Drive tools are easy to use. As with any power tool, there are a few basic things to remember for best performance.

Problem Solution
Screws won't drive.
They spin for a second, then lay over on their side. Little or no penetration.
Make sure the screwdriver motor is not in reverse.
Screws won't drive completely.
They go down about halfway, then the bit spins out.
Check to be sure you are using the correct bit for the type of screws you are driving.
Check for bit wear. It may be time to install a new bit.
Push harder when driving.
Screws won't drive completely.
They are almost completely driven but won't countersink completely.
Check the depth adjustment on the attachment. Reset if necessary.
You may have missed the substrate.
Example: In flooring, this will occur if you miss the joist.
Screws don't advance properly causing tool to jam. Use only Simpson Strong-Tie Quik Drive brand collated screws.
Be sure the screw strip is inserted correctly - pointed end first.
Lift the tool completely off the work surface after driving each screw.
Don't drag screw strips on the work surface as you move to the next position.
Be sure the feed pawl assembly is intact and feed lever is engaged.
