Spider Drill Shield


Question: What’s the worst part about drilling holes into metal door frames for door contact sensors?

Most Common Answer: Everything!

How so? Because even when an installer is fully equipped with the required safety gear, this drilling task is always painful and ever dangerous.

It’s a ‘necessary evil’ for technicians: Drilling into a metal door frame in an awkward, upward direction— While 100’s of scorching-hot metal shavings fly directly back towards their eyes, face & arms.

We’ve solved this problem once and for all.
Our Drill Shield is the ULTIMATE TOOL for this!


(#1) The shank must be no larger than .375″ in diameter. (#2) The shank must be at least .750″ total length, in order to pass through the ball bearing core with enough left over to be properly grasped by your drill chuck. 

These Step Bits from Amazon are ideal for pairing:
