Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 98 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use with great features I purchased this unit to install 3 doors in our kitchen and found it very easy to use. It made short work of making perfect cuts on the door for the hinges. February 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A once flawed product that now works great I would like to clear up some confusion with this product. Some of the older reviews were quite negative because the 5/8" radius was not correct. This is absolutely true of the original version of this product, but some time in 2012 or 2013 Ryobi corrected this. The old insert was a 3/8" radius (I'm not sure how that got past Quality Control at Ryobi), but later models have the correct 5/8" radius. The current green and black model (A99HT2) absolutely has the correct 5/8" radius as I have tested it. I happened to have the old version which I had not yet used for a 5/8" radius hinge and noticed the problem with the incorrect radius and decided to get a newer version to see if there was an improvement, which there was. When I called Ryobi about this they were not very helpful since the old one was past the one year warranty, therefore I'm giving this a 4 star review. In my opinion if you produce a completely flawed product you should stand behind it, and since really all I needed was the newer inserts I thought they could at least send them. But nope, they wouldn't. Nonetheless I bought the newer version, which I slightly regret since I'd rather not give Ryobi any more business, but it does now work right and I think it is worth it to save the time on hinge mortises.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, perfect cuts I like this product because it performs perfectly. It will cut any hinge and the fit is very exact. The router bit is included and the depth gauge on the side of the tool works very well. I have done over 50 doors with this simple jig and the fit has always been perfect. As long as you carefully align each door, top to bottom, place the jig in the appropriate location, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this jig. December 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not accurate depth for 4" hinge on a 1-3/4 door This works okay for a 3-1/2 hinge, even though the cheap plastic mechanism that moves to adjust hinge size has enough give to make the mortisse too big by about 1/64. The real problem though is a 4" hinge on a 1-3/4 door, the jig places the hinge 3/16 from the outside edge of the door, which is of course 1/8" too deep! If you're doing exterior doors, stay away from this product. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Door Hinge Temple My project was to remove bi fold doors on the pantry which has a 48 inch framed door way. I bought 2 24"X80" slab doors with smooth sides to install in place of the bi fold doors. The doors were not mortised for hinges so I bought the Ryobi Door Hinge Template. The door frame was not mortised for door hinges. I used the RYobi template on the doors with my Ryobi Router. The door hinge mortises took about 20 minutes to make and that included the setup time on the router. At this point I needed to mortise the door frame but no door frame template was included in the Ryobi kit. After thinking about this for awhile, it became obvious I could easily make a door frame template using the door hinge temple. I used a piece of 3/4" hard wood about 12" long. Made certain one edge was straight. Then I ripped the board on my table saw the exact same width as the door frame template opening for the doors. I inserted the piece of wood into the door hinge template so that it appeared as a really wide door. Then I clamped it and using the router I routed an opening in the board the size of my hinges. I then had a door frame template. After installing the door stop in the frame, I placed the non open side against the door stop at the appropriate heights. I then set up the router to use this template with the proper depth set for the hinges I was using and routed the mortises in a few minutes. The hinges fit perfectly in the door and frame. I added pull knobs to the doors and used a spring ball latch at the top of each door. Then I attached a 72 in. x 12 in. 8-Tier Ventilated Storage Rack to the back of each door which was the objective of the project. April 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good bang for the buck I was hesitant to purchase this due to some of the negative reviews but I needed to replace ( 8 ) doors and the chisel was not an option. I hate plastic anything especially in tools and jigs but this one works great. Two problems I read about was the 5/8 radius was off and the jig wood give too much when tightening to the door. There is no reason to over tighten because it grips very well and out of the 8 doors I replaced, the jig or template never moved and the 5/8 radius was perfect. End of day it is like brand new and will do many more doors. The best tool to use is a laminate router because it is much lighter. February 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Jig for Accurate Results Like other reviewers have noted, while this jig is plastic, it does give accurate results and is very easy to use. The router bit included is sharp and works well on both MDF (hollow core doors) as well as solid wood. As others have noted, you do need to chisel out the corners if you are using square hinges (since all router bits work by rotation). The rounded hinges will fit perfectly into the rounded corners. I'm not sure I would depend on this jig to do loads of doors, but for the typical DIY-er this is going to save a lot of time and frustration compared to hand-chiseling the mortises. For the modest price, it is a very good purchase even if you plan to do just a few doors. March 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi Door Hinge Template I am a finish carpenter of over 30 years and usually mortise hinges with a router freehand. I purchased pre-finished oak raised panel and half glass doors and decided to try the Ryobi Door Hinge Template because it clamps to the door while other jigs need to be nailed which is ok if you are painting the door. I measured the existing hinge, marked the door clamped the template turned on mo router and in 10 seconds I was done and the hinge fit like a glove for under $30 this is a must if you are a novice or a pro.
