RYOBI introduces the Door Latch Installation Router Kit. This addition to the RYOBI Door Installation Program allows you to easily install door latches with help of a router. The adjustable not-marring clamp attached to the door without the use of nails or screws. Our Door Latch Installation Router Kit includes a free router bit and features an integrated router bit depth gauge to take out the guess work of getting the correct depth for your router bit. Be sure to look at the rest of our door lock products for all of your door lock projects.
Router template attaches to doors without the use of nails or screws
Integrated router bit depth set takes the guess work out of setting the router bit accurately
Works on common door thicknesses of 1-3/8 in. and 1-3/4 in. with the included door thickness insert
Latch Locator drops in place to easily find latch hole center
Pairs nicely with the door latch jig. The two jigs paid for themselves after the first use. Wish you could order the 0U812 model!

Helpful hint for use of this GREAT RYOBI PRODUCT
This Ryobi Router Latch Mortiser proved to be an excellent jig for making a quick and perfect mortise. I removed the tightening screw and used instead a 6" bar clamp for a more secure and centered jig mount with equal pressure on each side.

Excellent latch mortise tool. Used it on nine doors in my home. Glad I found it before making a mess with a chisel.

My neighbor lady wanted to learn how to install her own door locks, she is a real do it your self person, willing to learn and go out side her comfort zone. I ordered this with her in mind and it worked GREAT. She was able to install her entire lockset with no mistakes and in less than about 45 minutes. I could have showed her the old way, the way I learned but this was so much easier, now I am a believer in this jig...it worked GREAT...She is now a do-it-yourselfer! I'm confident she can do it..

The instruction included make it easy to understand all of it functions of this intuitive tool.

This is great, no more using the router free-hand or wood chisels to mortise the latch. The latch locating insert makes set-up quick and easy. The template body fits snuggly on the door and the thumbscrew which holds the template securely to the door even has a soft plastic tip to protect the door from marring. The bit storage is a nice idea too. If I had to make any changes, perhaps it would be to change the plastic thumbscrew with metal.

Good quality door latch mortiser!
I selected the Ryobi door latch mortiser kit for an upcoming project I have where I will be making a solid wood entry door. Never having done any kind of work on doors, I am not sure what to expect, or what I will need.
The mortiser kit arrived well packaged. It provided not only the mortising guide for the router, but also the router bit, too! The construction feels sturdy, and includes an integrated shim, allowing for the tool to be used with different door thicknesses.
The 'brick' has a number of other clever features, as well, including markings for a number of different, standard depths... which is useful when setting up the router. And even instructions on when, and when NOT to use the stop block.
The instructions are printed clearly and are easy to read. I am looking forward to using this on my upcoming project.
If you are like me and new to building or hanging doors, I would recommend before taking on a door project that you do a little research, watch some videos on how to use these tools properly, and find a good solid piece of wood to practice on. Better to learn how to use the tool on scrap wood than on a few hundred bucks of door.

Ryobi built a nice jig with this addition to their door handle jig kit. This jig is intended to allow you to notice in your door latch plate and it does a great job too. This kit comes with detailed instructions and a router bit with a guide is included. This jig works very well and is easy to use and set up. Ryobi seems to be making high quality tools these days.

This kit by Ryobi is to use with your router to create the indentation in your door for the latch plate that surrounds the latch from your lock set. You will need another kit, such as the Ryobi Wood Door Lock Installation Kit to install the lock set in the door prior to using this kit.
This kit requires that your wood door be either 1 3/8" or 1 3/4" thick.
It comes with a router bit to use in your router.
This kit seems to be high quality and will be good for it's intended purpose. I believe that lock installation requires some woodworking or lock installation experience. I recommend watching some Youtube videos on lock set installation before taking on this project.

Overall this is a pretty handy tool. It makes mortising for a latch set on a wooden door easy, fast, and accurate. The included adapter makes it easy to switch between the two common thickness doors. Using this tool truly is a piece of cake. There is a built-in measuring device so you can accurately adjust your router depth to the correct level for that particular door. Using this tool with the included router bit, your latch mortise will be perfectly aligned. Of course, the mortise will be radiused as you would find on any pre-bored door.
