Makes replicating shapes very easy!
When you want to really replicate different curves and lines, this contour guide makes it very easy. I used this to match lines and angles on door frames when I recently installed flooring. No more need for guessing and going back and forth on cuts.

    I purchased this contour gauge for a flooring project. It worked really good for the curves that I needed to cut. My only issue was the flex was tight and the middle bar moves around a bit more than I would like. I would how ever recommend this tool, especially for the price.

    Excellent for transferring detail as small as 0.03 inches !
    This tool is built solid with all metal construction.Soon as you pick it up you can feel it. Because of the thin blade design, 0.03/ 1/32 inches, its sure to capture fine contours and details. Its very simple to use too. Just place and push the back of it on a flat surface and then push the front firmly against whatever contour or pattern you want to capture. Now you'll have the outline to trace on to your material to cutout. It's that easy. The blades are 0.03 or 1/32 inches or 0.85 mm. thick and can reach to a depth of 1.8 or 1 13/16 inches or 47 mm. And piece up to 6 inches wide!

    I’ll be taking the product back. The tool fell apart while using it. Hopefully Home Depot will refund my money.

                I've been wanting one of these for years and finally bought one. It will accurately provide a reference for any contour. This is especially helpful when installing flooring at odd shaped obstructions (doorway, pipes, etc.). The profile will be duplicated by pushing the gauge against any object. The profile then can be traced onto the flooring or other piece that you need to cut out. There are numerous other applications for this gauge.

                If you know what it is then you know it works like it's supposed to. Love how stiff the rods stay compared to the previous gauge I had.

                        Good tool gets the job done. It could be a little sturdier if that makes sense.

                        It was easy to use on the wall but it was hard to transfer contours onto vinyl plank. Not saying it was impossible, it just took more work than need be. I ended up not using it. It would have been nicer if it had a locking mechanism so it won't move after you push it into the contour shape you need. Wouldn't buy this àgain.

                        I opened the package. Pressed it against the door opening, then I placed the device on the tile to trace the pattern. The slightest touch of the device with the marker, rearranged the pattern. I picked up the device, stood it on it's edge to realign it and redo the process. When I picked the device up to press it against the door opening, all the pins fell out. I picked them all up, and threw the pins and the entire device into the trash receptacle, and didn't look back. "You get what you pay for." is not an empty statement.
