( 2 Reviews )

Welcome to QUIKCORE®
The Quick Release Revolution
The patent protected quikcore release system provides consistent results quickly! Our easy to use design requires no spanner’s or excessive force compared to current techniques. We have taken away the frustration from components locking up and binding, leading to damage. The improved work flow efficiency makes this an essential drilling tool within your toolbox armoury!

Please pay close attention when using 38mm core bits as the clip could make contact with the wall during use, causing damage beyond repair.
The Knockout tool has been designed for use on brickwork and solid blockwork only. Soft Mortar joints aligning central with the core bit may affect the knock out tool removing the unwanted waste material.
Periodically apply plumbers silicone grease to circlip pin and the spigot end of the drill adaptor only. This will help protect the moving parts from dust and particles and extend the life of your purchased product.
Due to the high RPM and vibration, the quick release clip has been designed to be a tight fit so as not to come off in use.Always attach the quick release clip to the core adaptors when the core adaptors are connected to a core bit and never straight out of the packaging.


We take no responsibility or liability for any damages or failure arising out of, or in connection with misuse of the product.

Review for Quikcore Starter Kit by MasterGas Heating & Plumbing

Cracking bit of kit. So handy and no more fighting with grips and spanner’s to get everything apart again. I got them through a tooltalk deal after watching a promo video and will be buying a second kit for other core bits I use to save swapping still

Review for Quikcore Starter Kit by Andrew Stevenson Plumbing & Heating

Seen this promoted online and though it was a good idea I contacted quickcore and they told me which merchant was distributing it locally to me. It really makes taking the core off the drill to clean it easy and using the knock out bar it makes knocking the core out of the drill a lot less hard work I'll be getting additional adapters for my other cores only downside is it isn't compatible with my dust extraction kit.

Hello there. I'm Lee from iGas Heating Limited. Today I am going to be talking about the QuikCore drill adapter kit on behalf of Expert Trades and Tool Talk.

QuikCore was designed... Basically when like myself, I do a lot of flues and stuff. I'm a heating engineer, so I'm called in for flues, condense runs, things like that. Normally when I core a hole, obviously the brickwork stays inside my actual core itself, and then to get it out you've given it a whack with a hammer, trying to get screwdrivers. Some of them have holes around the core where you can get a screwdriver in and try wedge and it out, stuff like that, which I don't know if you, but with me personally, I find it a bit of a nightmare. Can be a right pain to be fair.

This is designed to take that pain away. Basically it comes with this attachment, which is the Quikcore knockout tool. So this actually sits inside behind the core drill adaptor. You just put that in it, give it a whack with a hammer and it pops it straight out. It's a really good design.

And it's all designed with quick release clips and stuff like that. So again, normally when I'm attaching my core to my normal core drill adapter, obviously you screw that in there. And then if you've been coring for a good 20 minutes or whatever, this can become really stiff and get stuck in there, and then you've got to get spanners and grips and things like that on it, to actually get it undone, which again can be a nightmare and a bit of a pain to actually get out.

Just show you how it all goes together. This is your normal just core drill attachment. I use mine in my cordless SDS. I've got Milwaukee SDS. This obviously just goes straight in the chuck, and then my core will go on to the end of that.

What Quikcore actually have, they have a Quikcore drill adapter. So you get your normal attachment. This screws onto here as normal, just like that. Nice and simple. I don't know if you can see that hole there? I'll talk to you about that in a second. You then get your Quikcore core adapter. This just slides over, yeah? And as you can see, there's the holes there. You then get a circlip, you put the circlip in there. Pop it on. Nice and easy, nice and quick. And then you attach your core to that normally. If I can screw it in properly.

Obviously you put your pilot in there, core your hole. And then, like I said, normally what you have to do to get the core out, you got to undo this part of the attachment. This bit obviously isn't normally there. This and this are joined together. You've got to undo it. Try and give it a good bang with a hammer to get the brick out. This is actually designed to eliminate that problem.

Now, the only negative I've found, I'm not sure if I'm actually doing this incorrectly, or if I'm missing a tool. These circlips are quite hard to get out, but one thing I've just noticed myself, I use the knockout tool, so once I've done my core, put my knockout tool in the actual, just to punch hole there. Give it a few bangs and that comes straight out. This then slides off. Yes, you've got your core drill adapter on it, on the end of your core. You then get your knockout tool, put that in there. That slides in there. And then you just give this a knock with a hammer. And that, I don't know if you can see that? That actually pushes the core out and it works really well.

That's pretty much it to be honest, guys. It's really simple to use, not bad in price to be fair, either. And it does take away that pain of having to undo this and giving this a whack with a hammer all the time, trying to get your actual bit of concrete or brick out of the hole.

Overall, I think it's really good. It feels really well made. Again, the only negative is them circlips are quite stiff to get out. I tried to do it by hand first and it just didn't happen. So I use this knock through tool, and it punches it out in about four punches. So, yeah. Nice and quick, nice and easy.

Hope you've enjoyed the video and yeah, it's a thumbs up from me. It's a good product and I will be getting one myself.

Hello there. My name's Jamie, I'm a heating engineer. And today I'm going to be doing a Tool Talk Review on behalf of Expert Trades on a product called the Quikcore. But before I go into that, I want everybody to just imagine the pain that they've all, we've all experienced it, when it comes to getting these off the core bit to change size. I've tried all kinds of different things at the minute, a bit of PTFE kind of helps, but we've all been there with two spanners and I've tried heat, everything. It's a pain in the ass. It puts me off coring with diamond bits. I'd rather just get a big SDS out and smash the hole through than faff around trying to do that. It got to a point that actually I bought a load of these extensions, just to live permanently on the core bits.

But not anymore, because now we have something called the Quikcore and it consists of a few different components, but the gist of it is it's got a little clip on it that you just pop off, bear with me, you just pop off, like so, to be able to change the size. So you can faff around getting these off, but really, you're better off just getting a few of these to live on your core bits and then they just stay on there, that just stays on the extension bar, and it's a case of literally just clipping it together, getting this clip which holds it in place, popping it on and away you go.

The only thing that I can possibly foresee going wrong is that the core bit is, it could be... The size less than this might actually cause a problem when hitting the wall here. This might get damaged over the long run, but so far so good. So imagine the pain that you feel and then imagine doing your core, popping this off, swapping it over, away you go. So, that's the Quikcore. This is a Tool Talk Review on behalf of Expert Trades. My name's Jamie. Thanks for watching. Take care. Bye-bye.

So we've got here the new Quikcore. So we've got the traditional, as we all know, chucks. So they all come together screwed. But as we all know, it's a nightmare to get them back off and we have all sorts of things to pry them back off, but apparently these new Quikcores have these little pins that stops them needing that, so we're going to have a quick look at it, get it all set up, drill a hole and see what difference it makes.

All right, guys. Dan here from SIA Property Services. I'm just doing a quick review for Expert Trades on the Quikcore. I know that's what on my lens with a front facing camera, but yeah, it's the Quikcore drill adapter for your core bits.

So what we have is the adapter into your existing core bits. Then we have the ... where'd I put the right one? That's the adapter the other way. So that slides in, that lines up. You have your little split pin that will go through, hold your drill bit in. And then onto that is your existing chuck. And then just put it in place and we're good to go.

So yeah, I want to whip a quick hole in, and I'll get back to you in a second, and we'll see how easy it is to release afterwards.

All right, so just gone through it and as you can see, a nice new drill bit, now you can see the paint has pulled off it. But now just pop the pin out, and off we go, onto you're next hole. The core's came out the other side so there's no need to knock out, but you don't have a knockout pin for knocking the old piece out.

But yeah, all of them does make it quick. Going to need a few adapters if you use different sizes regularly. I don't particularly, so probably two adapters will do it for me. But yeah, like it says on the tin, Quikcore. And I'll be good. Good to go with them. So yeah, I have to say, making life a little bit quicker.

It is another little set up. That is the only downside to it. There's another little setup to get a few of them for your different core bits if you do use different ones regularly. But if you're just mainly on four inches, if you're a plumber doing boilers and you got a four-inch setup all the time, it does make life a little bit quicker. Cool. Cheers, Expert Trades for setting me up with these. I'm going to keep using them and keep you informed how I get on going forward. Cheers.

Hi there. I'm Dave Armstrong. My company's D.A Gas, Heating and Plumbing and today I'm doing a Tool Talk review for expert trades. The product we're reviewing today is the Quikcore and the idea in this simple little product is to save you time and effort when on site coring holes. What you get is a couple of Quikcore adapters, and you also get the drill adapters. You get these bits here that you screw onto your extension bar, and then they stay on them. Once they're on, you leave them on. You're not taking them off with spanners every time.

And the idea is that then goes obviously onto your drill. And then that end simply goes onto the other adapter, which is already on your core bit, which again, you don't remove. That goes on there like that. Simply push fit and there's some holes you line up. Once you've lined those up, you grab the clip with the rod, push that on, and then that is on there. It's not going anywhere. The idea being that when you want to change your core, you just take that clip off. I would say it's a little bit difficult to get off. I use the little bar you get for getting the drill bit out. And that seems just to work just as well to pop it off.

He says. There we go. That's off. Core bit off, put your different sides, core bit on, if you want to go again with a different core. That's one section of it. The other bit you get is the knock out tool. Which to be honest, I think this is probably one of the best bits about it. I mean, we've got a bit of insulation stuck in there. This is actually from a previous job. But you put the rod through, you get this adapter on the back. You slide that up to the end and you'd knock that through until it knocks your core out. I mean, so there's no more bashing away trying to get the core out before we can go again. I think this knock out tool is a great little idea to be fair. That would definitely be staying in the bag.

I love the idea of these clips and I said, they're a little bit stiff to pop off. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. But overall, I mean, once you set all your cores up with these, I mean, how easy is that? You good to go. Time-saving, effort saving. Overall I think it's a really good product. The only thing I would say is obviously there's loads of bits. You want to buy all these adapters that screw on to your cores. Probably you want to buy three or four to go into your most common ones. And then you got to keep them safe. Because obviously with all these bits, if you just chuck them in a bag, they're going to get lost. You'll probably want to get a core box. It might be some memory foam and some cutouts or something. There you go. That's me, Dave Armstrong for my Tool Talk review.
