Product Overview

This tread template consists of two 12 in. sturdy plastic plates and clamps. Add a piece of 1 in. x 3 in. 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 in. x 3 in. snug to the skirts while you tighten the bar nuts. This jig will save you time and give you perfect accuracy on every tread.

Works
This tread template worked great not just for the treads but for the risers as well. Super easy to use. You do need to cut or use a strip of wood because this kit just has the olastic end pieces. Reason for a 4 star and not a 5 is that the description states to use a 3 inch piece of wood bit that wobt fit. I had to cut a 2” wide piece. Do reccomend

a little flimsy because its plastic but if not use everyday its fine. it adjusts fine to kick boards for layout of the treads. I can see it for the risers as well if not painting them and using a stain and not caulk if needed.

This is an inexpensive alternative to accurately measure stair treads. Results are almost perfect. We had almost a one inch difference between our top step and the bottom in our 73 year-old house!

Stair trend tool
Great tool, can't imagine the time and mistakes we saved by using this tool. It is made of plastic and comes with the warning to hand tighten only, if you over tighten it will crack!

    Made my cuts on the retrotreads that I installed the closest I've ever done. A few gaps, but nothing like past installs. No need for trim or quarter round on the ends to hide the gaps.

    It worked well for my stair project. Certainly for the price it can't be beat. Other similar products that are ready to go cost 2-3 times more.

    Great tool for laying treads and risers
    I look at other metal and expensive templates. This template has a good value for versatility. Excellent.

    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.

    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.

      cheap and hard to work with
      ended up returning these and borrowing a friends template that had a spring built in. These are basic and you get what you pay for. They aren't bad, but don't work well when working around existing rails, baseboards, etc.

          They are ok. If putting in molding along the edges then these are fine for less precise work. For precision work the plastic material has flex, would not trust the measurement lines, and the springs on the bolts to tighten interfere with accuracy.

            Very easy attachment to work with and got the job done right. The stairs came out great and spaced perfectly with this tool. Don’t try and measure to shortcut, spend the money and get this tool!

            Replacing old treads felt impossible before buying this tool
            I had to replace some old, cracking treads in a 60 year old house. I have housed stringers which made it even more difficult to measure. I gave up entirely until I came across this template tool. I was able to hammer out 11 stairs in a couple days after that, totally worth the price
