Product Description

Amazon.com

This tool makes humans as close to foolproof as we can get, at least when it comes to measuring, cutting and installing trim without a flaw. We love that it’s a solid piece, with nothing adjustable on it, so you know its 45- and 90-degree angles are always true. It takes the gymnastics out of measuring, too, whether screwed to your workbench or temporarily tacked to the working wall with 6d finish nails, because of the built-in tape measure hooks. Even tricky inside-to-inside miters are a snap. Perfect 3/16-inch reveals on windows and door jambs are guaranteed every time: Just line it up and draw your guide with the pencil holes. Though it’s marketed for casements, we’d keep it in the toolbox for all kinds of jobs. Imagine installing baseboard up to door trim and lining up the Trim Loc for a perfect cutline every time. We think it’d be the perfect gauge for squaring saw blades, too. This little tool will save you time, money and lots of frustration.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

From the Manufacturer

Trim-Loc is made to measure, mark, and install casement trim. Built-in tape measure hook slots let you quickly and accurately measure jamb openings. It's also perfect for measuring your trim stock. Just fasten Trim-Loc to your bench, hook the tape measure, and lay out perfect miters every time! Use Trim-Loc's precision 45-degree and 90-degree guides to quickly mark the cut lines. It's also a handy square and setup tool. When you're ready to install the trim, Trim-Loc will hold the stock in perfect alignment while you nail it in place so you get consistent 3/16- reveals every time! Do you work on a crew or have a lot of trim to hang? If so, think about buying two Trim-Locs, one for your tool belt, and one for mounting to the bench.

When I ordered the Trim Loc Casement tool, I thought it would be a flimsy lightweight unit. I was surprised when I received it that it was built out of such thick aluminum. It is protected with a baked on finish that should last. It is one of those simple tools that give you big consistent results. Trying to eyeball the casement trim offset won't give you the consistent professional results of this tool.
I have several Bench Dog tools, and not one of them is less than best in class. They are decorated in many woodworking reviews, and this one deserves five stars. Highly recommended.

I don't necessarily care about some of the features of this tool but for the one main thing it does it has become a "must" in my toolbox. It quickly and precisely locates casement trim when installing, making the job go more quickly and giving me more consistent reveals. Anything else it does is gravy.

This is handy especially if you work alone. Makes trim installation easier after you become familiar with it. Beware that the older model was made from quality aluminium and this is now a cheap plastic.

This gadget is available in both plastic and metal. The one Amazon ships is plastic. For about 3 bucks it would be an OK novelty. Here is why it's useless. The only thing it does is to hook the end of your tape with a 3/16" offset to account for the reveal, when you measure the inside dimension. You still have to add 3/16" to the measurement for the reveal at the other end. If you can add 3/16, you are certainly capable of adding 3/8". And you don't need any tool for that, just measure the inside of the jamb. The other "feature", the reveal guide, is already in every carpenter's tool box. It's called a step or trim gage, and it's adjustable for ANY reveal. The Bench Dog is for 3/16" reveal only.

Unlike many of the reviewers who bash this tool, I have actually used it and have made "perfect miters" with it. I am a professional woodworker and I do use it. It is handy for marking a reveal around door jambs and for making a perfect 45 degree reference line in the corners. The only problem I have with it is I was expecting it to be be metal and it was plastic. I have seen them in metal in stores and other reviewers referred to them as metal. The plastic works fine. It is just a lot of money for plastic.

This tool makes it very simple to get fast and professional results! I was extremely surprised at the accuracy and ease of use. It really takes the guesswork out of measuring inside miter angles, and is invaluable when nailing the trim to get a perfect reveals each time! [the price] might seem a little pricey but I would have paid twice that. If you are planning to install several window casings it is worth every penny.

If you work alone and install trim...get this. The slots are perfect for holding your tape in place for ensuring accurate measurements before making a cut. I also like the fact that all reveals are uniform by simply placing the tool on the jamb and not having to constantly take your tape out. Very easy to use and figure out from the pics on the packaging.

although a couple of reviewers found this gadget a little useless, I found it very helpful, I do home remodel for a living & I own a lot of tools, I like to try every new product I see, this little device make doing casing very easy, It may be useless for the big time carpenter but for someone who doesn't do casing on a regular basis it works fine, at least it does work for me, I've done about 30 doors with it & it gets it right all the time...
