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

Answer: 
Like me, many are placing retreads over the existing treads (the stairs were previously carpeted). In that sort of application, you need this tool to get the retreads cut properly.

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.

Answer: 
You place the blades of each side on the sides of the tread, then clamp them down to the wood plank. This will capture any off-angle lines on the treads.

5 in. x 12 in. Sturdy Plastic Tread Template is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These templates saved me a lot of time and allowed me to cut the laminate treads to fit perfectly... These templates saved me a lot of time and allowed me to cut the laminate treads to fit perfectly against the wall and against the riser. These are easy to use. I used a scrap piece of floor laminate as the cross member between the templates. You simply place the template on the step and adjust the template ends so that they rest against the walls and the riser, you then use the template to mark your cut lines on your piece of laminate. Without these it would have taken me three to four times as long, and the treads would not have fit as well as they did by using the template.

However, ... it is a very good alternative to some expensive tools that essentially do the same job. However, the clamps that you use to hand tight the black nuts are way too weak. I recommend replacing them with either much thicker plastic or metal ones. One of mine cracked at first use :) But, hey, for $20 you can't beat the price and making a jig is not worth the time and materials. So, be extremely gentle when tightening the nuts.

It gave very accurately the exact width and angles. It seems nothing in my house is square and this product made life very easy in measuring everything in one go. I highly recommend it. It makes a professional out of an amatuer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job I am not expecting to do stair treads often, so I didn't want to invest heavily in this tool. I would have liked that some sort of connecting bar was included instead of requiring a piece of 1x3 to be purchased separately. It's a bit pricy for what you get, but not too bad. I would recommend since it does the job and is a lot less expensive than other options on the market. The included instructions are poorly photocopied, it would be nice if the supplier fixed this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, quite useful! While reading on websites about installing stair treads and risers, I noticed several references to a "tread template". This was my first stair tread/riser installation - replacing the carpeted stairs with red oak. It would have been next to impossible without this tool to get the treads and risers cut correctly. NEVER assume the sides of a stairway are plumb/straight/parallel! (they are NOT.) This tool is simple to use, very inexpensive (other sites sell this for 2x or more HD's price), and gets the job done - correctly and professionally. Suggestion: don't even TRY to get your cuts correct without this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great simple tool make sure that you mark which way is toward the riser. Double check the tightness of thumb screws and back cut the tread cuts by maybe 3-4% if you have a compound miter saw. Cut just to the line, dryfit and do the final cuts. This tool makes you able to have professional results at a fraction of the fancy gauges!

Plastic is durable enough to many sets of stairs. Used a 1x3 of MDF as center beam to be sure it would lay flat. Don't over tighten the set screws, they hold well. Recommended and great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stair tread template I looked at others that are made of metal instead of plastic and look much sturdier but they were much more expensive. Took a chance on this tool and it does the job. Need to store it where it won't take abuse.
