inaccurate pilot hole instructions
Suggested pilot holes - not even close. I used 3/8 for hard wood (oak), and 11/32 for soft (plywood). Make sure you use a flat head screwdriver that's at least 1/2 inch wide or you mangle the threads at that end. I used a bolt through other end to realign threads. As the package does state - test on scrap piece of same wood first.
