Installing screw hooks by hand can be time-consuming. A simpler method is to use a power drill to do the work for you.

  1. Begin by boring a pilot hole for the screw hook, then get the hook started in the hole.
  2. Take another screw hook, and chuck it tightly into the drill.
  3. Hook the two screw hooks together, and use the drill to slowly drive the hook into the ceiling.
  4. Once the hook is in place, insert a screwdriver in it to make any final adjustments.
