Just a suggestion, I went looking for these or similar tools on the home depot site by doing a search for "stair tread tool" and nothing came up so I bought it else where. I didn't know you had it available till I went looking for tread risers that it "popped"up. You need to have it come in any searches for stair tread tools.

It is sitting right next to the stair pieces and wood treads. I had three people over the last 6 months find it with little issue

I installed the treads already before i saw this product. Can i still use it for the risers which are about 7" in width otherwise the treads will get on the way?
Asked by: Alex
Will work on any size riser as long as the height of the riser is taller then the height of the plastic piece. If the tread doesn’t hang over the riser it won’t matter. Plastic piece is 12 inches tall so it won’t fit between the treads if top one hangs over. This tool is just a simple story board to get an exact fit with little gap. Would definitely use again. Can use also inside of window frame measurements for blinds or any other inside measurements. You can always cut the plastic piece off to fit between your treads on your saw. It is just sturdy plastic. Ideal way to use is to install bottom tread then riser then next tread then next riser and so forth working your way to the top. Hope I didn’t confuse you

What size piece of wood do I need to use with these?
Asked by: Donna
The description of the item suggests using a 1" x 3" piece of wood. You can use any width wood with a 1" thickness. The length of the wood is up to your application.

5 in. x 12 in. Sturdy Plastic Tread Template is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 168.

It's made of plastic so it is not super strong, but then for what it is used for it doesn't need to be. I bought it to redo stairs and risers but discovered that it also works great for closet shelves. Use it the same way as for stairs.

Just tighten the wing nuts snug, they do not have to be super tight and you will not have to worry about breaking it.

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.
