This thing may work on soft pine door, but I used it on an oak door, and it broke on the first door!

The template blade worked very well, but the chisel part didn't and I ended up using my own chisel. I might have been able to do it without the unit, but it did make the square very clean.

After owning this jig for over a year and damaging the three raised panel pine doors I used it on, it's time for the trash can. After using the awesome Ryobi door hinge installation kit, I was excited to get the door latch kit. This jig is nothing like the hinge kit. The idea is good, but the execution is pathetic. The "cutter" just dents the wood, not scoring it clean enough or deep enough to get the job done. After pounding on the plastic with a hammer, tapping down and up to chisel the mortise results in tear-out and damaging the door edge. I've been in the trades for 38 years so I really don't understand the positive reviews for this jig. I will continue to score around the plate with a utility knife and chisel to the correct depth, leaving my door edge in tact without having to patch the tear out. I would pay double for the same type of jig Ryobi makes for the hinge kit, using a router for the mortise. This jig should be recalled!

The way the tool creates the imprint to be chiseled causes hammering on the tool while on the door. This cracked my door and I would have been better off by simply scoring the plate.

Made notching out and installing new door latches on new doors very simple and easy. Wish I had bought it sooner to complete the task!
