The drill bit is used to strip the existing damaged threads and is the first tool to be used to install a coiled threaded insert. A drill bit is not always included in the kit, so you may be required to purchase one in the corresponding size.

They have the same purpose as regular taps, which is to create threads, the difference is the diameter. STI taps have a slightly larger diameter, to create space for the threaded insert, allowing the original size screw hole to remain.The STI tap can be used like a regular tap, either with a manual tap wrench or in a power drill.
