JIG IT® Hinge Plate Template A

Item #
98% of 100

Your doors will swing smoothly and line up neatly every time with our JIG IT® templates to guide your way. Just butt the template up against the face of your cabinet and use a centering bit to drill perfectly positioned mounting holes for a wide variety of concealed hinges. See the compatibility info below for a list of which hinges are compatible with this template. Requires centering bit #68991 (sold separately).

For even faster, more foolproof installation, use several of these templates mounted on one of our T-track rails (e.g. #26420, sold separately).

For easier mounting of the cup plate from two-part Euro-style hinges, check out the JIG IT® Deluxe Concealed Hinge Drilling System. It works with your handheld drill and sets up so you can bore precisely spaced hinge cup mounting holes on multiple doors.


  • Installs hinges: #33626, #36879, #37258, #35929, #21591, #32894, #33603, #55864, #55872, #27325, #55793, #55801, #55840, #55847, #28817, #81018, #55886, #38385, #38398

Woodworking Experience:
Nice tool, works well
I used the jig to help align and mount a set of Blum 170 degree full overlay hinges, and while the adjustment features on the hinges make them very versatile, the jig made aligning and drilling of the pilot holes bulletproof. Nice tool.

Korin C on Aug 1, 2017
Because incorrect information from a Blum source caused me to buy the wrong hinge plate template a few weeks ago (for a 56 mm backset). Not your fault, but it sure messed up my life. Now I have to pay for a 3-day delivery to recover.

I'm purchasing hinge 54806, and was looking for the jig for those hinges. Will this one work with the 54806 hinge?
Wayne M on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to their technical information it will work. I usually make a mock-up of the cabinet/door out of scrap to make sure the reveal, etc. is what I want. I bought two of the templates and attached them to a story pole and position it on the cabinet so I can drill for both sets of hinges at the same time.
