Find a variety of drill bit holders and drill extensions at Ace Hardware. We carry a large variety of drill bit extenders to help you get the job done with less hassle. Read on to learn how to choose the right drill bit adapter for you.

What is a Drill Extension? 

If you’re drilling into materials that are deep or hard to reach, a long drill bit extension can come in handy. Commonly used on metalwork or for various home improvement projects, a drill bit extension lets you bend the extension into a tight work area to help you save time and effort.
Long drill bit extensions often work with many different types of bits. They can extend your tool's reach whenever you're working on projects with hard-to-access components, such as reaching screws that are nudged between two walls or drilling into corners. Projects like cabinet installation, fixture installment and general driving tasks can each benefit from the use of a drill bit extender.

Drill Extensions by Shank Type 

The shank end of a drill bit is the piece that connects to the chuck. Shanks come in different shapes and your drill is designed to only accept certain types. The following basic overview describes the most common types of shanks.

  • 3-flat shanks: Also known as a triangle shank, a 3-flat shank allows for higher torque operation and limited slipping. 
  • Hex shanks: The most common type of shank, hex shanks have six sides that enable the bit to work with materials that require higher resistance, such as metal. 
  • Round shanks: For projects that call for centering the chuck more precisely, a round shank might be a good option.
