Answer: 
No. The jig is designed to fit over and clamp to the door. However as explained my a reviewer in the review section, you can use this jig to make a door jamb jig. Takes a few minutes and would be reusable. If you're a pro, doing lots of doors and jambs, buy a more professional kit ($250 +).
Also, if you are replacing doors, typically you would not mill the door jamb. Just transfer the mortise positions Read More

Also, if you are replacing doors, typically you would not mill the door jamb. Just transfer the mortise positions from the old door to the replacement door, and you are golden. Beauty of the Ryobi design, is that the open / cut area of the jig makes it easy to align the jig accurately to the marked lines. Perfect match to the jambs every time! Read Less

Not directly, no. But you can use it to make a door jamb template. One advantage of the Ryobi is that it employs a pattern bit where the bearing guide is the same diameter as the cutter, thus it routes exactly what you see in the guide opening.

Answer: 
This product is designed to fit over the edge of a door so you can route the door edge for hinges. It isn't designed for routing jambs and I don't think that there is any way that you could use it for that purpose as there is no way to mount it to a door jamb.

Answer: 
Not directly, but read carefully the review of this product by Pro named DBDWF. He explains how to use the Ryobi template to make a wooden template for door jamb mortises. You will need a table saw to implement his method. He did not, however, explicitly say how he fastened the wooden template to the door frame, but a couple of small nails should work.

Sure does Buddy and I would make sure that you don't lose it because the bit is sized to fit the corner. The door hinge template comes with an indent to secure the bit so utilize that so that it is always available otherwise you will be wasting time trying to find a replacement bit.

Yes Ryobi makes a jig to drill out for your latch or door knob. But I have never seen a jig for the stick plate.

The kit includes an onboard stowed front support rail to accomodate a smaller router base such as on a laminate trimmer. For the unknowing, a laminate trimmer is just a small version of a router intended for trimming the edges of countertop laminates. It works very well for door and cabinet hinge work.
No, for the door frame. The unit is for door carcass hinges only. No way to use directly on the frame. You will have to go to something like a Milescraft (or identical Sears Craftsman) kit. Useful, but nothing as easy and simple as this Ryobi jig.
No for latch plates, but Ryobi door lock installation kits include templates and a bit for latch and strike plates. Again, your laminate trimmer would be the ideal routing tool. Read Less

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 144 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Found it difficult to use well I had a 3" rectangular hinge area that I wanted to deepen on a custom made sauna door in order to pull the door back more true; over time it had canted slightly to make it hard to close the door. Rather than sand down the edge, I decided to deepen the hinge. I had no problem with making the jig rectangular and 3" wide, but the width of the hinge was less than I could adjust the jig by. Also, the plastic gets chewed up by the router bit when pushed against. The upshot is that I completed the job using wood chisels,and they did a great job. So I'd say if you've got a rectangular hinge, the chisel works great; if rounded hinges, I'd still try the jig first. May 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the money Very nice tool for the price. Very simple to use for mortise out hinges. Even comes with the router bit. You just lay your old door on top of the new door making sure the top is lined up then mark where the old hinges line up on new door. Clamp jig centered on your marks and router it out. Why easier, quicker and cleaner than using a chisel. I'm not sure how well the jig will hold up for several uses, but I've done 4 doors with 3 hinges so far and have 3 more to do. My only complaint is the clamping part only has one spot to tighten (in center) it to the door. I wish it had 2, one at each end would make it more stable. The jig is adjustable for all types of hinges. Mine are 3 1/2" with 5/8" radius. May 10, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job This does the job if you have a few doors, but it has some problems. The clamp can only be tightened lightly or the whole thing bends. Fortunately there's some foam on the clamp and there's enough friction to keep it from sliding around. The plastic molding is not that great, and mine was actually defective - you could see where a piece of the mold was mis-aligned, causing the depth to be inconsistent. I had to shave off plastic with a utility knife, and even after that I had to shim it to get the routing depth consistent. The 'bridge' piece is flimsy and adds to the inaccuracy (depth). If you're careful and go slow, you can get your doors done, and it definitely comes out cleaner than a chisel, and it is way faster. For the price, it is not a bad deal. Also if you have a smaller router, it works better - I used a Makita Compact router. May 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool. Easy to use and multi functional for different sizes and shapes of hinges... Very easy to use. Convenient adjustable fitting for different sizes and shapes of hinges. Material could be made out of a little harder material. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use I purchased this to miter the hinges on a new door. After marking the hinge locations from the old door, the guide clamps easily to the new door and stayed in place as expected. As previously mentioned in another review, I did have to tweek the depth of the miter just a hair to get it to the correct depth. Worked well and very easy to use. I would have given it a 5 on quality, but it is made of plastic and should last long enough for a home user, Great product overall. Everything is in the kit that you need to install a new hinge on a door. It does help to watch a Youtube video as the instructions are very vague. February 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by didn't know these existed worth every pennie, saved time - saved effort - and saved doors April 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't Work for Me I make High-end custom doors & jambs. Mostly exterior, using 4 1/2" baring square corner hings. Sometimes we get a request to match the bore & hing routing to a customer door. For what it did do, fine, a standardize hing barrel to hing inset. what I need is a fully adjustable jig that compensates for the hing inset. Why? It seems the only time I need single tool jig like this is for something odd, not standard. But it did help to make jig that I could use. If it had the same type of clamp screw on the front guide rail storage side(C side) it would then be fully adjustable, I'll even pay a little more. June 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First time I've never mortised a hinge before so I took to the internet to figure out the easiest way I could successfully tackle my project. Watched a few videos on the Ryobi Door Hinge Template. Picked it up for a reasonable price at my local Depot. I was impressed that it came with the router bit that was needed. The adjustments are easy to manipulate. Used the old door as a test piece and went ahead and mortised 4-5 areas before I was ready to apply my new skill set on a new door. Worked as it should, each hinge is quick only taking a few seconds really. Like all jigs, the time is in your prep and layout. One thing to note is the corners can accommodates ¼” and 5/8” round and square hinges. Make sure you know what you want before working on your finish product. I needed to switch this around for my needs. March 17, 2016
