Step 1:

Adjust the column positions using the allen key provided. Do so in such a way as the holes you're  drilling are far enough away from the outside edge of the material so as to prevent break through.

Step 2:

Clamp your work piece into the jig and use the supplied HSS drill bit in your drill driver to drill both of the holes.

Step 3:

Clamp both pieces together at right angles before using your drill driver (speed 1, torque setting 7 or 8) to drive the supplied dome head screws into each hole which will securely affix the work pieces together at a perfect right angle.
