Used it Today to install 24 drawer/cabinet pull handles and it worked great. One problem! One of the set scews was missing when received.
Has a bag to keep it all together. Looks very precise and precision is certainly a must.
Have used it on two sets of kitchen cabinets, drawers and doors. Works great. Saves time and everything is lined up perfect.
I ordered this to place handles in the middle of shaker cabinet drawers. I've built many kitchens but have used a template for cabinet hardware until now. Jigs of any brand are not for beginners unless you're a very quick learner. This was accurate and worked great. I would absolutely order again. If you need more guidance beyond the limited instructions, youtube videos are great.
This tool was a life saver and saved so much time it was unbelievable! We did 52 cabinets for our new home in under 2 hours!
Recently moved and wanted to add handles to many cabinets that previously were handle-less but I did not want to fuss with making several jigs for positioning them. This device is inexpensive and should last a lifetime for an amature like me. Best of all, it is simple to use and the job looked like it had been done by a pro. The only thing I would suggest is that a set of instructions should be included so you do not need to scout down a video onlyine.
This product was worth twice the money. We installed 42 drawer pulls. Once the gauge was set, it was a breeze drilling the holes and installing the handles.
Save time and avoid frustration hardware jig. This is such a simple idea and works extremely well. If you want to professional look put this jig to use. It is not a tool you��ll use everyday, but when you do need it you��ll be glad you have it. The carrying case it comes with is also very nice, and will surly keep all the parts together.
I hope this was helpful.
I purchased this device and found a YouTube video explaining how to use it. After watching a short video, I went to work installing handles on my kitchen cabinets. I easily saved myself hundreds of dollars! My friends have already asked me if I'll come install handles in their kitchen as well and have offered to pay me!! Can't recommend this enough!
Easy to assemble. You can use metric or standard unit. Setting up the template was so accurate and hole for the handle was properly aligned. Excellent product.
Easy to set up and use. Both metric and inches on the rule so easy to set up for European handles. The metal guides are deep to help guide the drill bit, and protect against drill bit damage. Once set up it can be used inverted for both openings in cupboard doors.
I was going to make up my own jig - this was so much easier.
Did an entire kitchen with this. The quality was wayyy better than expected, tolerances are very tight and there is almost little to no play in the slides. I would definitely recommend getting a needle point drill bit though for starting your holes.
We remodeled our kitchen and we had 15 drawer pulls to put on. This made the task of drilling into brand new cabinetry a whole lot less intimidating. We suggest adding a clamp to this to keep it held tighter to the cabinet while drilling.
Used this to drill holes in 28 cabinet doors/drawers. Set it one way for upper and lower cabinets, then changed for the drawers. Wide drawers are more difficult. We have 4 drawers that are about 5 inches wider than the ruler. Measuring from the end of the ruler to the edge of the drawer made it easy to center. You can flip it over and it is exactly the same for left and right swing doors. The small plastic stop could be larger. It was somewhat difficult for the stop to hold on the edge of a 1/2�� rounded door.
I've installed hardware with nothing but a drill and tape measure in the past and it looked good in the end but it was a lot of work to get consistent results. With this cabinet hardware jig it's a really quick and easy project. I used it on the new cabinets and desk that i built and it made setup a breeze.
This drill guide worked very good. I had over 30 doors and drawers to drill and install handles in my kitchen. The guide works best with a 3/16" drill bit. If you have hard wood like I did (maple) I would also recommend a new drill bit. I also found clamping the guide to the drawer or door, makes the guide more stable. Just an inexpensive vice grip c clamp from harbor freight seemed to work fine (2 clamps). Overall this is a tool that you most people won't use very often, but it will make installing cabinet handles much easier.
Perfect for our needs. I installed 64 knobs and pulls. For occasional use or diy projects this worked great. If you need to install cabinet knobs professionally, I would invest in something heavier duty as the jig has some flex. The jig is designed to be held against the top and the side of a door or drawer. On wide drawers I had pulls with 8�� on center. I could only set the jig against the top, as the jig isn��t wide enough. It was easy enough to just mark the center and hold the jig on the mark. I am very pleased with how our knobs came out.
Does exactly what it is supposed to. An excellent price for a sturdy, surprisingly well made product that allows for rapid perfect placement of door handles and knobs. We were able to put up 23 handles in under an hour, all aligned perfectly. Much better product than the price would suggest
Need to install some cabinet hardware? Buy this jig. Very useful for getting it right the first time. Takes a bit of thought to set up but once done you can get your hardware installed fast. Did 45 pulls in about a days worth of time (with breaks and lunch!). I had 3 different sizes of handles and it was easy to go from one size to the next. Measure twice, then use this.
