JIG IT® Hinge Plate Template C

Enjoy fast, precise installation of the hinge plates on your concealed Euro-style hinges.
Item #
80% 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 #68998 (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.

I made a drawer hinge/cup aligner as a template to place the light on the cabinet and the door at the same time so the hinge jig it and the Kreg door cup cutter aligned perfectly. Love this product.

Woodworking Experience:
Works OK, but not with the self number 6 centering drill I got with the order. When trying to use it with the #6 self centering jig for face frame concealed hinges, the bit does not fit snugly in the jig it template hole, so it slops around instead of hitting center . Not sure if the jig is wrong or the drill is wrong, but I followed recommendations of your staff.

I guess that I completely misunderstood the ad for this jig. I thought it would be used to mark and drill holes for the hinges I had purchased. It did not work for any of them. So far it was a waste to purchase.

I am having hinge cups predrilled into my doors but wanted something that i could use to tell me exactly where to attach the part of the hinge that attaches to the cabinet itself. I dont want to have to measure or align or guess if I am putting the cabinet part of hinge in correct spot. does this do that or not? iT doesn't say how placement is determined....
Meredith S on Jun 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You have to first mark where the original hinge is so you can put the door in the same spot. Make a center line on the face frame where the old hinge is and draw a square line on face frame where new hinge will go. Use the hole that will be in center of the face frame inner side of frame. Using a selfcentering drill bit from Rockler will help to keep the pilot hole in best place and will also keep you from making hole too deep.
