Additional Items Needed Before Installation

  • The Pro Plug Tool for Wood
  • A water clean-up wood glue that will fit the Pro Plug Glue Nozzle
  • 100-120 Grit Sandpaper
  • A source of compressed air
  • The screws, plugs, and wood glue nozzle will be included in your kit.

Installing The Pro Plug System for Kebony

  1. Determine the locations where screws are needed. Each screw should be at least 1” inch from all sides of the board.
  2. At the joists, Pre-drill holes with the Pro Plug Tool for Wood. The hole is complete when the stop collar stops spinning. Blow out sawdust from the holes with compressed air.
  3. With the work surface in a horizontal position, place the Wood Glue Nozzle in the hole and push the glue bottle down. This will open the Nozzle.
  4. Gently squeeze. You can turn the bottle a 1/4 turn to ensure full coverage of the side wall. Then, pull the Nozzle out of the hole and this will close the holes in the Nozzle.
    • The objective is to coat the inside walls of the hole while leaving as little glue at
      the bottom of the hole as possible. You can glue several holes at a time and then go back to insert the plugs as long as you add plugs before the glue begins to set.
  5. Use a rag to wipe off any excess glue that may build up on the Nozzle tip.
  6. Insert a Kebony wood plug in each hole, chamfered end first, with the wood grain aligned with the board’s grain.
  7. Using moderate force, tap plugs in with a non-marring mallet until the plug is flush or nearly flush with the work surface.
  8. Any excess glue can be wiped clean with a damp rag.
  9. Sand the work surface to ensure transition between plugs is completely smooth. We recommend delaying sanding until after the glue has set.
    • Oversanding may reveal a lighter shade in the wood, which is temporary and will even out over time.
