Your inset 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 inset 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 (#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.

Worked great
The hinge plate template worked very well to accurately drill the holes for the case mounting plate for my Blum hinges. I used a centering bit to drill the holes.

This was worth the price, I spent a few minutes making a story stick to make it easy to locate the template and everything worked out.

Inset door Jig It Template
These hinge templates are well worth the money. Not much to say about them other than they make installing hinges super easy and take the measuring out of it. Will definitely be buying more when i need to install other types of hinges.

Good but could be better
This product works as advertised but it would be nice if it were adjustable for doors that are not flush but slightly inset.

Really makes it easier to get accurate placement of the mounting plates. All you need is a center line for the hinge, and the appropriate sized vix bit

Building cabinets with one (1) inch face frame and one (1) inch Inset doors. This jig says it is for locating Blum hinge carcase plate for a 3/4 inch door. So am I correct that since the jig which will rest along the outside of my wider/thicker face frame, it will result in the carcase hinge plate being 1/4 inch too shallow? Thanks for your input.
Albert M on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That is correct...I think. I had similar issue and drilled new holes into template. Overall, happy with product, just needed a little personalization. Best of luck.
I built doors out of 11/16" thick plywood. I plan to use the 110 Blumotion Clip Top inset hinges for frameless cabinets. Will this jig still work properly?
Pablo P on Jul 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe it will I have only used it with saliva inset hinges but it should be the same screw pattern
