What People Are Saying
"Saves hours on every single kitchen install."
"Gives you the ability to repeat perfectly whole layout from door to door, drawer to drawer--without worrying about wrecking the front of an expensive cabinet by poorly placed hole."
– Essential Craftsman
Not at all! This tool is very easy to use and designed to take the frustration out of hardware installation for homeowners and cabinet professionals alike. It is used by many professionals due to its substantial time savings, unrivaled accuracy, and durability.
12” Center-to-Center (300mm) for the Original (TP-CHJ) & PRO (TP-CHJ-PRO)
For cabinet handles larger than 12″, purchase the Cabinet Hardware Jig MAX (TP-CHJ-MAX) to install hardware up to 38″ (960mm).
If you already own the Original Cabinet Hardware Jig (TP-CHJ), you can upgrade to the MAX with the Long Pull & Rapid Center Combo (TP-CHJ-LPRC).
For even longer pulls, multiple jigs can be conjoined via thumb screws to drill for any length of handle.
Yes! Just set up the tool for one door and you can flip and drill for the next. We recommend checking that your thumb screws are still tight before drilling the next hole.
Yes, our Cabinet Hardware Jigs now include our new Shaker Drawer Spacers (TP-CHJ-SDS), so installing hardware on Shaker drawer fronts has never been easier. Our specialized jig is the only tool available that can accurately and quickly help you install handles on the inset panel of drawers.
For more information, see our guide on Shaker drawer hardware placement.
If you previously purchased a Cabinet Hardware Jig and it did not come with Shaker Drawer Spacers, they are available for purchase.
Always make sure to start with a sharp drill bit. Generally chipping is not an issue with the provided drill bit. Extra precautions include taping the work surface with blue painter’s tape. For melamines and veneers, consider using a brad point bit.
True Position Tools has high-quality 5mm brad point drill bits available for purchase in our store.
Always use a sharp drill bit and relieve chips as you drill by pulling the drill out of the workpiece as it’s running to spin off excess wood chips. Do not apply much pressure while drilling, especially at the end of the hole. Holding or clamping a sacrificial block of scrap wood against the back of the door while you drill is recommended for extra protection against blowout.
In most cases, the screw head covers any minimal blowout. In extreme cases, where a screw head would not cover minimal chipping from the exit of the drill, users will drill the hole halfway with a standard drill bit, then use a tapered drill bit to finish the hole. To prevent drilling injuries, always be aware of where your hands are positioned.
1/2″ width — The small and large end stops can also be reversed if extra clearance is needed.
16″ — Be advised, it’s typically not preferred to place hardware on the center of a large drawer front as it can make it more difficult to open. In most cases, placing the hardware more towards the top of the drawer front is desired for operation and aesthetics.
Over the years, many! Changes to the jig include a larger top stop, more durable thumb screws, a redesigned end stop, and extending the bottom rail of the T-square by approximately 1”. We now also laser etch the numbers into the jig, where before we screen printed them over the aluminum T-Square. In recent years, the tool has started shipping in a hard plastic case instead of a cardboard box.
Every Cabinet Hardware Jig now includes an Accessory Kit that contains Hardware Spacing Pins, Shaker Drawer Spacers, and Magnetic Bushing Covers.
Yes! Every part of the tool is either covered under warranty or can be purchased separately. We have many commonly needed replacement parts available on our website. Please contact us here or call 760-279-3033 if you are having trouble finding the part you need.
Top (large) stop and T-square parts are only available as a set, as they need to be precision-mated in-house to a tolerance of .001” square for us to be able to guarantee their accuracy.
