Erbauer SDS Plus Masonry Drill Bit 16 x 210mm
This drill bit is Boring! :)
So, in doing a favour for someone by installing a Garage Defender to secure a classic vehicle from toe tags and the like, I was merely shown the bolt that came with the lock set. Unfamiliar with that particular kind of bolt, I measured the diameter and packed a little 'fix it kit' as I wasn't driving the van due to a recent shoulder surgery.
I took my 18v cordless Dewalt SDS, a piloting 5mm bit, an enlarging 10mm bit and the 14mm bit (as per fixing diameter), And my 18v Dewalt Impact driver with appropriate drive pieces.
Upon arrival, and finding the apparatus' instructions, which if read would have superseded the need for me to measure the fixing and assume the bit size required- I learnt that the correct size required was indeed a 16mm SDS bit.
Now being 20 miles away from my van and All my tools, a 16mm bit was available, but at some considerable time and diesel away- However, with the convenience of a ScrewFix store being in nearly every town, I knew that there was one in this town, so away I sped. Upon perusing the laminated book of tradesmans dreams, I found a reputable brand and a perfectly reasonable price and purchased the appropriate product (tongue twister ahoy!!) The 16mm bit I required for the task! I whisked away to the said garage, withdrew the bit form it's sleeve, a little tacky with moisture repelling oil, and got it work!
A perfectly capable tool to compliment my arsenal. This drill chewed through the material very competently and with the job done, and classic vehicle secured, all could hail and bask in the glory of the Erbauer bit that saved the day and complimented my Dewalt drill perfectly.

Have not used the item yet but expect it to work as designed. Good value.

I've drilled around 16 holes into breeze block and brick using this product and it has been like a knife through butter. I've got a Titan SDS and this fits in a spare space in its carry case which is handy!
