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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the price! This template worked perfect and saved me a TON of time in measuring! It's made a little cheap but it's great for a one time project. I would recommend it for any DIYer. June 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for the money I was looking at several more expensive choices. When I came across these, i figured they would be cheap and not do the job. I was able to scribe against a set of stringers that were bowed - didn't think it would turn out nearly as well as it did. November 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Affordable solution I recently purchased this plastic tread template for a remodel of our stair treads and risers. This is an affordable solution, to the more expensive template guide. We just finished our stairs, they look beautiful, the tool was easy to use, and completely good for a one time job. Although, we did not have any problems with this template cracking, don't crank down to hard when tightening the wing nuts, it could crack. That would be my only advice. This is made of plastic, it says "Sturdy Plastic", but I would not call this sturdy plastic, however, it served it's purpose well for our project. If I had to do another tread and riser job, I would get this. If I was a full time construction worker, I would invest in the more expensive one. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great item it really takes the guess work out of figuring the right angle, just stretch it out and lock it and scribe the angles. September 2, 2014
