TikTok’s Genius Hack Makes Assembling IKEA Furniture Quick And Easy | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

You can create a hex drill bit like Starrett’s by removing the short part of the Allen key with an angle grinder, a hacksaw, a rotary tool like a classic Dremel, or an oscillating saw like a multitool Dremel. (Asked in the TikTok comments how to cut an Allen key in half, Starrett hilariously confesses, “With a grinder, then glue it back together and use scissors for the video.”) This leaves you with a straight bit you can affix directly to your drill. To use it, set your drill’s torque to a fairly low setting, which will help prevent accidentally cross-threading a socket or damaging your furniture by over-tightening the bolts. If you do happen to damage a fastener, you can get many spare IKEA parts for free. Some hex-head bolts are located in spaces too tight to use a drill and therefore require a hex key, meaning it’s probably a good idea to be sure you have two of each size before you cut them in half.

If you’re uncomfortable cutting hex keys in half, you can buy hex driver bits for your drill rather than modifying the Allen wrench that came with your furniture. The most common sizes used for assembling IKEA furniture are 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm. IKEA also sells a cordless screwdriver, complete with driver bits, for this purpose.
