I was just looking for a 2 1/8" drill (hole saw) attachment to install a deadbolt (in a door that did not have one) and I happened to find this Ryobi kit, which was not much more expensive than just buying the 2 1/8" drill attachment. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the results, as this product had all the different drill attachments and bits needed as well as a metal tool that fits over the door and facilitates marking the points that you need to drill in order to install a lock in a door that never had one to begin with. A very well designed, but inexpensive tool for a DIY wanting to put a lock where one had not been located before. Made the job easier and performed exactly as it was designed.

This is extremely cheap quality. I expected better from Ryobi. I would recommend a lot of their products for light homeowner use, but this one was way below expectations. Not sure what I expected when I grabbed this up since HD did not have any slab doors with holes already drilled that were not busted up so it was one of those rush "have to have now" things.
It did bore the hole, but the bit was about as heavy duty as tin foil. All the bits in the set were dull and basically what I would consider junk. It did do the job though for one door. If you are needing something for multiple uses or if you are a contractor find something better.

I purchased this item to speed up the process of replacing a few interior doors. The doors I intended on using this on were hollow doors (nothing fancy). The product was very inconsistent on how it marked holes for both the latch bore as well as the large bore for the door handle. The latch bore marks were not centered in the wood. The door handle marks were always slightly off. As far as quality, the drill accessories (Ex. drill bits, hole saw, etc...) were very dull. This item went back after one use. Spend a little more money and get a higher quality item.

I bought this Ryobi door lock jig thinking it was the same as the black and decker 79362 jig I used a few years ago. This is about the same price but instead of a real drill guide that snaps around the door this is simply a cheap piece of sharp metal. You have to pound it to place hole marks in the correct spots to drill. That's all it does, help mark.
It was easier just to use my speed square to pencil mark and keep everything aligned.
Buy another brand like black and decker or dewalt and stay away from Ryobi. Or simply buy the spade bit, holesaw, and speed square. You really don't need this.

Stay away from this tool. Spring for the better one and skip this cheap one. The bit that's built into the hole saw is not straight and will butcher your door. I'm returning it.
