Product Overview

This tread template consists of two twelve-inch sturdy plastic plates and clamps. Add a piece of 1 x 3 and you have a very rigid gauge that will give you accurate measurements every time. Another great feature is a series of holes in the plate that allow you to pry with your nail set against the 1 x 3 snug to the skirts while you tighten the bar nuts. This jig will save you time and give you perfect accuracy on every tread.

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 107 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tread template for the DIY guy This is perfect for the DIYer. The price is very affordable compared to the other alternatives. Worked great! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the $20 I'm not a professional - this template made the cutting of my stair treads on my wood stair renovation project relatively simple - resulted in perfectly sized stair treads! September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's the right tool for the job. I could have spent a lot more money for a higher end jig, but it couldn't have done a better job. I don't replace stair treads and risers for a living and couldn't have justified spending a lot more. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! September 9, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stairtek Tread Templete Flimsy and did not find much use of it. The instructions were illegibly printed. Seemed like a millionth copy of a low toner home printer. Very unprofessionally built. August 16, 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 Best aid for stairs Imade perfect cuts and my stairslook great. Angle and length Were right on. August 2, 2016
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
