Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Designed not only to rout the strike and latch plate, but to help align them perfectly and with ease. The gauges at both ends of the template automatically align the latch plate in the center of the door. They also align the strike plate on the jamb to the exact setback. Designed to fit over a door stop or rabbited jamb and still rout the strike plate in the proper position. Made .049 in. thicker than the hinge template to avoid resetting the router depth for the strike plate. Made of high impact ABS and fiberglass, and if nicked by the router it may be patched with ABS cement. A corner chisel guide to square corners is included.

If you've ever installed strike and latch plates on doors, you know how incredibly upsetting it can be to install these mechanisms and find out that they don't line up! This tool makes installation of these plates a zip. The beautiful thing is that it is pre-measured to work on both 1-3/8" and 1-3/4" doors, and it includes almost all sizes of templates for your strike and latch plates. This has definitely saved me many hours of needless measurements and frustration!

This item was out of stock at Amazon, so I bought it elsewhere for more $'s. They don't have customer reviews, though. I like simple jigs, but this one went a bit too far. It uses two nails to secure it to the door or jamb. I've used it twice so far, and need it about six more times, but I need to come up with a better plan. I carefully aligned the jig, held it as securely as I could, and when I drove the nails in, it moved sideways because of the grain pattern. Once the nail hole is there, there's really nothing you can do about it. I really don't like the idea of leaving the nail holes behind either. They can easily be filled with wood putty in the doors, but we have PVC jambs with molded in stops. Still haven't figured out how I'm going to do those. On the second try, I used edging clamps to hold the template in position and they worked better, but aren't big enough to do the jambs. Both of the mortises were a bit undersized (about 1/64th) but I don't know if that's because of the jig, the router guide, the hinge mortising bit, or (more likely) the lock plate being a small amount over-sized. I wound up cleaning up both mortises with a chisel, which is what I was trying to avoid. There's got to be a better jig than this on the market.

I've used Porter-Cable with much success. I tried to save a few dollars and go this route. Trust me, it doesn't come close and won't hold up for more than a couple of doors. Do yourself a favor and go with Porter-Cable.
