I purchaced this product because I needed a hinge template asap and this is the one that I could find that could ship the earliest. Although it did get the job done (on site hanging of eleven doors) it didn't make the job very easy. I had to be very careful when I was adjusting the distance guide for setting the top hinge because when I tighten the holding screw it would move the spacing bar causing the door and the jamb hinge pockets not to line up as they should and the back of the jig was not made heavy enough so the back of the hinge pocket had a curve to it. Also the hinges fit sloppy in the finished pocket. I am glad that they provided more nails than needed to secure the jig to the door as the kept bending when the jig was removed from the door. As I stated earlier it did get the job but I should have waited for a better one to come available and it does reinforce my belief that you get what you pay for.

Easy to use once you figure it out. The only short fall is that you have to be careful when you put the nails in and take them out because the plastic breaks ,not too bad though.

Verified Purchase
I had to replace 8 doors; lining up the template on the old doors/hinges and then moving it [template] onto the new doors was simple. I took my time and every hinge lined up perfectly with those on the door jams. I used the same box nails from start to finish. One of the templates didn't come with the necessary spacers and the router bit was out of stock when I had ordered it. I called Carey Co., left a message, and I was called back the next day. Within three days, I received the spacers, a router bit, and they threw in a striker plate template, all at no charge. This is not an item to beat with a sledge hammer every day but, it does the job it was intended for with a little care.

I agree with the previous reviewer that you get what you pay for. This applies to the customer service as well. Call long distance, request accessories (the router bit is not provided), and never receive them. This is what you should expect. if you do decide to go the low cost route, make sure your router is equipped with a template following set of guides, specifically 1/2 ID x 5/8 OD and that you have the 1/2 dia mortising bit handy as you will not have much luck acquiring them from Carey Template. Call Mike he'll help (not!). Anyway, if you don't have the template guide or the mortising bit you can obtain them for about $25 total from MLCSwoodworking.com

I used this template to mortise 8 doors on site to match existing jamb mortises. I found the template easy to use and accurate. The hinges fit like a glove, and reassembly was a breeze. Maybe not for everyday use, but it really beats a chisel or frehanding a mortise.
