Answer: 
Easy: TWO - it wouldn't work without a clamp at both ends. BTW: Works great! - especially when you are putting new treads on a staircase that someone else installed originally!

if you're re-treading, why wouldn't you simply use the old tread as a template for the new?

Answer: 
for remodel you do not remove treads. the retrotread is glued on top of the old one. so you can not use it as a template. :)

Answer: 
You COULD use the old tread - unless it was damaged when removed - or the original installer wasn't careful and it never fit from the beginning. I'd RATHER "do it myself" and make sure it's right... I have to please my boss (and best friend, my wife!)

Do these also take in consideration measuring off angled measurements? In other words for example back of tread 32 inch front of tread 32 1/16th inch.

Yes, that's the whole point of these in that they adjust to the stair tread so you know exactly what size to cut.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth evey penny When I first found this on line the product was made of metal. When I went to order it a week or so later the only one available was plastic. Although I would rather have the metal ones for $10 more these are absolutely indispensable for the sizing of replacement risers and stair treads. I have seen others, some for hundreds of dollars, but I can not imagine what they can do that this can not. I am new to carpentry and also purchased a table saw and sliding compound miter saw and some scrap wood to learn the tools. It took me two tries with this tool to make my first good riser and the error for the first was my fault not the tool. If you are installing stair treads or risers don't think twice about getting this. There are even instructions at the stairtek web site that show in detail how to use it. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool for laying treads and risers I look at other metal and expensive templates. This template has a good value for versatility. Excellent. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by verry handy for stairs/shelfs remodeling this is very useful inexpensive tread template. Will not last for ever(plastic) but got the job done. I used it to remodel my stairs. Considering that my very old stringers had not just various angles but also some bowing ( curving) I managed to use the template and get very close cuts in the runs. I also had to chisel some curve to accommodate the cut in the run. The only thing that you need to pay attention to is the fact that you need to tighten 2 knots per side to lock the template. So push out as much as you can first then tighten one side at the time. I used 3/4 by 3 by 30 in mdf piece to hold the template. Also I used it to cut out the counter top piece between 2 walls where the shape was not square. Worked out great...Highly recommend. June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great These templates work great and they are only a fraction of what other templates cost. I only needed them for one flight of stairs so I don't know how they would hold up with long term use, but for a small job they are perfect. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Using this tells you how off your stair treads and risers are really off. Saved me a ton of oops cuts. Now they arr precise. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done I wanted to ensure that I had good inside measurements for the steps and this tool did it. I could have bought the 100 metal part but didn't want to do that for one job. This was a less expensive alternative that got the job done. Every cut I made was perfect! April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great Used for a re-tread job over existing stairs. I am an avid woodworker but did this for the first time and was going to make my own template but came across this template for less than half the price at the retailer,...from Home Depot. Remember, however it is all plastic. None the less, it worked great. April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tread template Redid my first staircase. Could not have done it without this. There are much more expensive options, but this worked very well. If you're redoing a wood staircase, such a tool is a requirement. The only thing you need to do with this is to cut a 1x3 to run between the two pieces. April 5, 2016
