The jig itself gets 5 stars. For me, making a jig per job, isnt always the available option bc hardware is rarely on site during install which either leaves me to put out tools to make one or the old tape measure and pencil trick. That being said this is great for me. Worth the money IMO. Two things to note where there is room for improvement. Although I dont have an issue with maring cabinets during drilling I can see how it could happen. Small felt pads should be added to contact areas. Not to much to ask considering the price of this. Also the drill bit included is absolute trash. Again for the price of this unit they could have cut 4 more dollars from profit to add a better bit. All in all I’m happy with the purchase.
Expensive, but works perfectly. Everyone that you know who is installing knobs/pulls will borrow it from you.
I use this almost weekly as a professional trim carpenter. It is easy to use, extremely accurate, and well made. This tool will save you hours per cabinet/kitchen job.If you are on the fence about spending the money, just buy it! You will love it!The only suggestion I have is is to make the knotch that lines up the centerpoint larger/longer so it is easier to see.
I do this for a living this is the best jig I have and I been doing this for 55 years
With this jig, I was able to easily and precisely drill for handles for all my cabinets. Setting up the jig and drilling the holes is really quick. As someone with little experience, I was able to install handles on 10 drawers in about an hour and have them all perfectly centered. It’s easy for one person to set up and drill with no help.The construction quality is very good and it’s easy to square up with your drawers and doors. The case it comes in is nice though it’s a tight fit for some of the parts.Also, be sure to tighten down the thumb screws all the way or else it has a tendency to slide a little.
Good quality for larger drawers & cabinets with larger hardware. Constructed well. I did need to order the extender for my drawers .
Very good jig. Pricey, but we will use it for years. Door installer.
We researched these kind of products and found this to be the best value. Upon delivery, we were glad to see our research proved helpful. This is a great product.
Takes a bit to set up, but once you got it set it’s ready to roll. Would buy the extensions for the larger pulls if to do over again.
This product is amazing, my husband said it saves hours on a job. My daughter works with him and always gets frustrated with the hardware she is in love with this product.
I am not a professional cabinet installer, but just a female DIY enthusiast. I am updating my 12 year old kitchen and bathrooms and wanted to install new hardware. Before I just had knobs, but wanted to install more trendy handles. Once I read the directions and figured out how it worked, I was able to perfectly install my new hardware myself and everything was perfectly aligned. The instructions were very detailed and had picture,s which I found very helpful. This was definitely a bit of an investment, but know it will come in handy for years to come. Construction is very sturdy, and the hard plastic case will keep it perfectly protected. Glad I purchased, as it probably saved me frustration and time in the long run.
I am 101% pleased with my *MADE IN USA*, tool purchase!!Home Depot & Lowe’s sell plastic junk!!Drilling into existing cabinets or new caninets is so critical to get it right.This quality made tool makes it a breeze!!My hat is off to True Postion Tools, Thanks!!
This item, while expensive, is the only way to install cabinet hardware. In our last house we had custom cabinetry put in and initially didn’t have hardware installed. I tried initially to install hardware with a home made jig, two handles later I bought this hoping it would produce better results. Once we decided on it I bought this and installed all the hardware with out issue. We are on our second house and have a big kitchen we are repainting for now and again putting new hardware on. This really is worth every penny when your doing the work yourself. I highly recommend this tool.
Absolutely love this product it makes installing Hardware Febreze really really great although if you do a lot of bigger doors or drawers I would suggest the extension kit with it
Very easy to set up and use. Accurate and repeatable. Flip it over and use for matching doors. Compared to the cost of the cabinets, this tool is a good deal.
Great tool. Worth the money
I got this as a gift for my son who is a contractor and had to install many doors and drawer fronts in the kitchen of his new house. He did it very efficiently wit this tool and loves it. He also uses it in his business and says it saves him a great deal of time.
I just had to install 40 handles in a kitchen / laundry room. Many plastic templates are not square, bend, etc. I have tried them. Not good. This product is very precise. Comes with a drill bit that fits into guided holes for nice square drilling. It was so fast that it only took me ~2 hours to do all 40. Probably saved me 2 hours. Love it.
This tool is so convenient for knobs and handles makes fast work and helps tremendously for making all yr knobs or handles dead on!
Perfect for the Job!
Easy to use, it makes your money worth
Great tool.A bit pricy but well worth it
I like it
The tool is very well made and very flexible in setting hardware drill patterns. It’s a big help in setting cabinet pulls accurately. Almost idiot proof. A bit expensive but will minimize mistakes.
Only mistake was mine. The tool was steady never walked. Handles are even.
I just left a one-star review for a Kreg jig, so I thought I should focus on the positive of this jig which I bought when the Kreg failed. I don’t expect a $25 jig to work like a $180 jig, but the TP Tools jig is a work of art. Is it pricey? Yes. But the bottom line is that it’s a complete rock and after familiarizing myself with it, I was able to install an entire kitchen’s worth of hardware…about 70 pieces…in about 2 hours. My door handles were centered inside the frame with about 1/8′ in either side. Any off measurement would be readily apparent. This jig really delivered and let me complete my job with complete confidence. Once set, the jig can be flipped over so that all doors can be drilled with the same template. There was no play in any of the moving parts and the slightest amount of error I could see in the mounting was due to milling variation in the doors, not the jig. Can’t praise this tool enough. The one change I could see that would make this absolutely perfect would be to build one arm 12′ long so that base drawers could take advantage of the stop. As it is, the jig needs to be manually centered for drawers.
Perfectly installed handles were a benefit for the high price paid. It was worth, since I had European handles that had longer distance between screws, and most competitors would not provide this width on the template.
Very quality tool should last for many years
This jig was very very very help full….totally love it. It got the job done very quickly and beautifully.
This the best tool a contractor can have for cabinets no more hand made jigs or ruined doors and its made in the USA
used only once so far exactly what I needed a pleasure to use
He seems to like it. Cabinet hardware is not his favorite thing to install so hopefully this will ease his pain and help with the process.
Excellent jig. I have bought and made just about every jig made. As a high end finish carpenter, this is well worth it. Bought and returned a few including Sommerfeld. This unit is on part with Woodpeckers precision tools. Just installed 46 pulls and knobs in my latest kitchen installation in under 1 hour. Every one was perfect. So fast, easy and precise… After almost 30 years as a finish carpenter, I found a jig that actually works… Light weight, easy to adjust, and perfect..
This jig is a dream….nothing like having the boys borrowing the correct tools for the job from the girl!
Worked fantastic…so easy to use and accurate. Saved so much time and resulted in a professional install
Excellent tool. Perfect installation of cabinet handles.
Very well made.No more plastic templates that look like swiss cheese from all the added holes‚If you install cabinets on the regular, you need this!
i bought one of these about a year ago. i have tried about all of them out there as i install cabinets for a living. This is by far the best and most accurate and reusable i have tried. it works for both drawer fronts and doors.
If you have a cabinet hardware project, this purchase is a no-brainer. We researched many different types of jigs and templates and this one tool solved all our complex install situations. We used this to do multiple 7′ pulls, double pulls, horizontal and vertical and numerous knob configurations…all with the highest precision and reliability. The included bit was perfect and using the jig, we made perfectly straight holes every time. It even allowed us to do a 12′ towel bar! This is THE right tool for the job…quality, precision, reliability 5-stars across the board.
Makes drilling holes very easy, and cuts the time to a fraction of what other methods would take – very glad I bought this for my Main Floor Renovation Project.
If you are a professional cabinet installer this tool will pay for itself in a very short time. I have purchased 4 of these tools one for each of my crew leaders. My first is about 5 years old and you can hardly tell it has been used.I am a kitchens installer and install approx.. 2 kitchens a month.
This drill guide is the best you will find anywhere. I install a lot of kitchen cabinets and this tool is a time saver. Very accurate! Whoever thought of this put a lot of thought into it. It is a precision instrument, not something you want to toss around or drop. It is expensive, but worth every penny if you use it often. NO OTHER JIG ON THE MARKET CAN COMPARE. It is for professional installers.
I’ve been a kitcken remodeling contractor for 30 years and tried all sorts of jigs. Hand made, plastic ones, recomended ones ect. None of which were worth diddly squat. One last try was my recent purchase of True Position TP-1934. This is a remarkable tool. Extremely well made. Machined to exacting tolerance. Easy to adjust and once you have locked down the hardware your good to go. Just flip the jig for left or right hand doors. Draw fronts ect. Buy the extentions if your installing extra long hardware. This is a must for any installer. Packaging is excellent for storage until the next one.A bit pricey but worth every penny.
Husband used it for the first time today, and it worked like a charm. He was worried he would have trouble lining up the exact spot for the drawer handles and this works like it was designed to do. We’ve only done one drawer so far, doing 4 more tomorrow, lets hope it does as well.
the jig is expensive but it well worth it. it was the only one i found that allowed me to attach 6.25′ handles. i had 47 handles to install on doors and drawers. it was well worth it.
Just received and used this jig this week to install cabinet and drawer handles. The cabinet handles were large – 7 inches – and this jig worked great. Also liked the way you simply flip the jig over to quickly switch from right hand to left hand handles. Jig is well-built and very precise. Great addition to my tool collection.
I really like it make my job more easy and I save a lot of time
Used it yesterday and it works great. Done 51 doors and 16 drawer fronts plus put the 5 inch spread pulls on in 4 hours
I wouldn’t try installing cabinet handles without this. Absolutely perfect positioned handles, every time
Excellent tool! Don’t waste your time on those flimsey plastic guides. This tool makes the job go fast, easy and accurately.
Great product. Big time saver. Well worth the money.
This is a great hardware jig. I’m a professional hardware installer and love this product
I am a contractor. I used this to install all the knobs and pulls on an entire house the day it came. No slipping, no problems. Best jig Ive owned. I am going to buy the rest of their products for the larger handles. You wont regret buying this.
Quality seems to be getting better as the years pass.
Im so happy I bought this jig. It has saved me a ton of time and money! Fantastic piece of equipment!!
This product is amazing! My father and I have been in the caninet business for years, where has this been all my life?? The hardware jig cut my time in half… probably more!! It is very well thought out. I could drill faster than my helper could knobs on! Great workmanship!! Well worth the money!! Thanks guys!!
I bought this based on the great reviews and I felt the need to add to them. This is a great product that is very well made. I used it to install 10 drawer pulls the 1st day I got it and I love it. It’s very well made. Highly recommended.
I’m a cabinet maker and installer. The accuracy of this tool is absolutely spot on. Performs flawlessly and accurately every time
Excellent tool, you can work 20 times faster than the regular way.
I bought this instead of calling a handy man or carpenter to install the hardware in our new home. I am a rookie DIYer and I installed 60 knobs and 37 pulls some that had double pulls. I was able to do the whole project in a couple of hours. Unlike other templates this has the hole for the drill bit so you feel really confident that the bit is going into the right spot without deviation. My tip is that once you align the hole(s) you’re going use to put some tape over the holes you’re not going to use. This will keep you from accidentally using the wrong hole. It’s easy to get into a rhythm and not think about what you’re doing.
Big time saver and totaly worth it.
If you are looking for the best way to install cabinet hardware, this tool is for the rookie and the pro, price is high however you get what you pay for. This universal tool helps to take the risk out of drilling incorrect holes. I was skeptical like you to spend $189.00 to install my hardware, but I spent thousands on my kitchen and didn’t want to skimp something im going to have to look at every day, and A crooked/ misplaced handle was not something I could stand. I set up and marked every cabinet door with a pencil then went back and drilled the holes, the jig is reverseable so you just have to set it once for both left and right hand doors. I rate this as a must have.
The best tool on the market If you are a kitchen cabinets installer you need this tool. Very easy and accurate hardware install kit Definitely recommend it to buy
Simply put, an easy and well built tool. Super easy to use!
been a professional cabinetmaker for 35 years.. used all sorts of hugs, handmade and otherwise.. I love this jig and it really does save a ton of time and simplifies the drilling procedure for knobs, and pulls.. while although it’s a little pricey, it does pay for itself in cutting time off by a good margin on jobs.
Cut my carpenters time by 90% and with no errors installing 40+ pulls in my kitchen cabinet remodeling project.
The quality and design truly are next to none. Best made and designed jig I’ve ever seen. Never buy another one again.
Best tool I’ve ever purchased. Time saver for sure.
This is great to use and you get the hardware the same every time.
This is a well designed tool to facilitate speed and accuracy! After just one job, I know this tool is worth the money for us as cabinet installers. Although it doesn’t self center on drawer fronts like the one we were using, it is much easier to get accurate holes. I will probably get the extensions to help center the large drawers.
Rarely do I give glowing reviews, but this one deserves it. How much time it saves me is amazing. A true pleasure working with intelligently designed tools.
This tool was awesome. I started out my project using the plastic templates from the store, and quickly messed things up. The square cabinet knobs I was using were very unforgiving and looked awful if even a tiny bit uneven. So I bit the bullet and bought this, and even though I’m a novice, the hardware looks great now. I’m just sad I won’t have much opportunity to use it again. Maybe I should start a side business installing hardware…
It works very well. It did exactly what I wanted.
Very precise quick and easy to use.I would highly recommend it for any cabinet installer.
One of the best tools I ever bought. Pro results highly recommended
Expensive but so worth it
Made drawer handle installation a breeze set for a size of drawer, drill the 2 holes, install the handles was easy. Including door handles, installed a total of 38 handles all in a couple of hours
This is, hands down, one of the best tools I’ve purchased in years. If you’re on the fence about it because of the price, just buy it! You’ll be glad you did!
I bought this jig a year and a half ago and it has paid for itself more times than I could count. I did buy the kit with the line boring jig and those attachments are a must have for any cabinet maker and custom wood worker. This jig is engineered to perfection for putting handles on cabinet doors and drawer faces. I’ve used other jigs in the past and even made my own with fiber glass. But this jig just blows all the competitions away. I can’t imagine doing my work without it. The inventor truly did his homework and made sure that his product is very well made I might add. I really really would incourage all professionals and DIYers to buy it. Y’all won’t regret it.
Amazing tool! Best money I’ve ever spent on a tool. Invested a lot of money in the cabinets so it was important to do this right. Easy to use and set up. Don’t spend the money to hire someone if you have a little hire than basic DIY skills. Measure twice and then again. Set it and tighten between handles and you won’t have a problem.
Time Saver! No more taping, measuring 12 times, drilling, and questioning if the handles are straight again.Measure twice, set it, drill. Next, set and drill. Next, set and drill.I got 3 bathrooms done in under an hour. Waiting on the 47 handles to show up for the kitchen and rest of the house. I’m excited to install them! Weird.
Works great, saved me a lot of time… worth every penny …
Saves me so much time on cabinet door hardware.
It works great! Did exactly what I wanted to do.
Excellent product. I’m a do it yourselfer. This product worked awesome. If I was a professional cabinet maker or cabinet installer, I couldn’t imagine not owning this guide.
This tool is not exactly cheap for a non-professional to use, but I had to place 30 drawer and cabinet pulls. This tool did the trick and made them all line up perfectly. In just a few hours, I had all the pulls done without the stress of everything looking uneven and wonky.
Awesome tool, pays for itself immediately. We use this tool daily and it makes boring for hardware so much faster and accurate. Highly recommended.
I have owned a couple other jigs and this is the best
Great jig does exactly what it claims !
This hardware jig works as advertised. It’s fairly expensive but if you are mounting hardware with mounting holes over 5 or 6 inches its a great tool to own. You can set it up in a couple of minutes then you can zip through a room of cabinets very quickly. Its a very solid, well built tool.
Awesome jig – well worth the money due to its flexibility and longevity. Don’t waste your time with those flimsy plastic templates sold at the big stores.I did approximately 60 cabinet doors and 40 drawer pulls with 5′ and 7′ handles in about 7 hours with this, cleaning as I went. It produced fabulous results.A few tips: Every few cabinets, double check the tightness on all your settings. Use a quick clamp for high cabinet doors when you might to be on a ladder to reach. When doing false panels, such of those in front of sinks, double check your clearance behind the frame to the sink before drilling.
It’s not cheap, but I was drilling the drawer fronts for our new kitchen. There was no way I was going to be the guy who drills the holes in the wrong spot. (‘But honey, being asymmetrical is in style!’) It’s very well made and will surely last a lifetime. Lend it to your neighbor when they put in a new kitchen, and make friends for life.
Its a beutiful tool , time saving.
As a handyman I have done several cabinet hardware jobs in the past with 3 homemade jigs with good success. The True Position jig is phenomenal! I only have to set it up once and away I go! Repeatable results and more efficient. I just installed 50 cabinet handles in 2 hours. The time it would have taken me with my homemade jigs would have been close to 3 or 3 1/2 hours! The holes are straight so there’s no need to ‘fine tune’ any of the holes! I highly recommend this jig!! The only drawback is that it does not come in a case, only a cardboard box.
This jig is the best jig out there. Despite being hesitant about the price I went ahead and bought this anyway. On average I use this jig to do 30 sets of hardware everyday. This jig it cuts the time of install of hardware in half and with no errors.
The only jig I would ever consider buying again for handles and knob. It’s seems expensive but after you do your first kitchen you are happy you paid the price.
Really good quality and strong for the job.But specially good design and fast shipping.
Stop Reading the reviews and just buy it
The tool was a lot more than we wanted to spend but given that we had 70 drawers and cabinets, we went ahead and purchased it. The time and effort it saved made it totally worth the investment!!!
A good buy, you get value for your money.Product well made and very good quality.Installing handware like a piece of chocolate
There were over 50 pulls and knobs in our project, and this tool helped make everything perfect. We had mostly 6′ CTC pulls, and none of the plastic gizmos could handle the spread. This jig is everything you need to masterfully apply all your ‘cabinet jewelry’ with ease and with professional results. It’s worth the money and I’m glad I bought it.
Worked great! Saved me a ton of time
This drill guide is phenomenal. As a novice, I installed 47 pulls over the weekend on a variety of doors and drawers. The drill guide made it super easy to make perfect holes from one drawer and door to the next. I have 120mm hardware that none of the standard templates worked with. This product is worth every penny for anyone from a DIY to a professional.
Well worth the money. A good investment.
I’ve been looking for a precision jig like this for years. It is everything I was expecting and more
This jig is better than anything else I’ve used in 35 years of cabinet work. Well worth the money, it will pay for itself quickly. Very precise and almost foolproof.
You can teach an old dog new tricks. Best thing since sliced bread. Installed about 275 knobs and handles on cabinet, in new house no problems. Well made, simple to use. Watch your fingers though, keep them away from drill bit!
Very good tool
Well worth the money. Top quality.
Excellent, well manufactured product with clear, easy to follow instructions. I consistently drilled straight, accurate measured parallel holes for long pulls quickly. Made installing crystal knobs in the exact right place a breeze. Take the time to set the hole guides where they should be for any size pull, lock the placement with machined precision and it’s an excellent tool.Yes, it’s more $ than the plastic guides but if you want first-time, no mistakes high end results quickly this durable tool is the unit. And, its machined in the US. BTW, I paid full price for it.Perhaps not required for shorter cabinet pulls where being off plumb is not going to create an issue, but this is a superb product for accuracy and speed of install. I had to install some long pulls with narrow bases ( Alno A419-6-CHBRZ) on 42″ painted cabinets. If the install is was off plumb on side by side by side doors or the pulls did not exactly match height it will be noticeable. With the A419s there is essentially no room for error. The base, where it touches the cabinet, is VERY narrow. Those how to videos that say use a bigger hole size to allow wiggle and adjustment would cause a hole that will be seen, especially as the handle shifts in daily use.Back to the unit, it even comes with a quality 5mm drill that fits the machined guides perfectly. The 5mm will be fine for most applications.But if you want finer precision, as I did for A419s, I used the tip of a 5mm bad point bit to lightly mark exact hole center. Removed the guide and used a 5/32 brad point for the actual screw hole. My old Ryobi 18V has a fairly accurate bubble level to guide level and by looking down on the drill I could keep the hole darn near exactly 90 degrees. With the holes marked exactly where there should be on all the doors and drawers, and tightly holding narrow bases with no slop, its quality.Summary: great tool, machined and marked well. Produces accurate results with any size pulls over and over quickly.
This is proof that having the right tool makes a difference! It took the stress away!
OMG I wish I invented this I have been installing kitchens since 1983 and hardware has always been a pain in the neck this makes it SOOOOOOO easy wish I had it years ago well worth every penny all the installers I work with that see it are buying them!!
Completely agree with other review that I am so happy I spent the money to buy this. The thought of creating custom jigs to drill cabinet hardware wholes was daunting. After doing some research and finding this product I was initially hesitant because of the cost. Once I got past that and purchased it I have been very happy with it. This jig allowed me to really fly through the install of hardware on all of the cabinets in my kitchen. That then allowed me to use it for the draws and doors in my bathrooms as well. This product give me the confidence needed to complete my projects and I don’t fear any future projects that require measured pre-drilled holes.
This tool make installing hardware easy
Great time saver! Well worth the price!
I rarely take the time to write reviews. I am not a carpenter, but a medical professional. I am somewhat of a perfectionist. A recent kitchen remodel, 35K in cabinets and some quality issues will some contrators, I decided to do over 100 handle holes myself. The True Position Drill GuideIs simply one of the best, well made and most accurate tools I have ever brought. I save $1000 in labor cost and had perfect cabinet handles.
Truly worth the cost! I’m a common DIY homeowner who had a $2,500 vanity installed by a carpenter who had to leave before he could install the handles (handles were special order and didn’t arrive on time). I found MUCH cheaper plastic tools and read where people used cardboard, etc. Then I found this. I had to talk my wife into it but she finally agreed. I didn’t want to use cardboard or chance our expensive vanity to a piece of plastic. Further, it would cost just as much to hire a carpenter to come out and install 15 handles.Jig arrived and after spending 20 minutes reading the literature and lining it up on a practice cabinet door and adjusting the components, I was ready. Adjusted the jig to where I wanted to drill the holes, lined it up and using my drill went for it. Jig didn’t move at all and hole was drilled perfectly.1) I went ahead and purchased the drill bit Amazon recommended…2) Our handles were six inches on center – this worked perfectly!3) Job was extremely easy and very quick to drill 30+ holes4) I removed drawers and doors to make drilling easierAfter I was done with the vanity, I as worried that I wouldn’t have another use for the tool for a long time, if ever. Well, that proved wrong yesterday as I had to install a toilet paper hold. The directions called for two holes, 160mm apart. I was able to use this jig for that job and it worked perfectly. Other uses? Anytime you need to transfer the layout of two or more holes from something you want to mount on wall – which is something I do a lot of!Bottom line – money WELL spent with this…
Amazing. Did our entire kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts in one day. Everything lined up perfectly and consistently. Don’t bother trying to make a plywood jig or worse, a cardboard one. Bite the bullet and pay for this thing. It worked beautifully.
Turning hours in to minutes. I am a professional carpenter and I am always looking to do things faster with out cutting any corners. Great jig!
Like the title say…truly precision! Built and designed super well and made in USA.
Honestly if you are doing a lot of holes you simply cannot afford not to buy this product! Work out the cost for any damaged doors and with quotes of around $4 a hole…..I am not the greatest DIY guy but the jig was a breeze to use. I cannot speak highly enough of this product.
I purchased about $23,000 worth of Dura-Supreme cabinets. I had my designer/contractor install the cabinets, but they wanted charge extra to install the hardware (2 guys for ~6 hours). That would have cost over a $1,000 in labor….yes, maybe my contractor is high, but you don’t want a couple of hacks working on cabinets that cost that much.I bought this tool and installed the hardware myself. This tool saved a TON of time. Once you get it set up for your cabinet door knobs, you just drill and go the the next cabinet door and drill, repeat, repeat, etc. Same with the drawer fronts, although you do have to adjust the tool of you have different drawer front heights. Nonetheless, this tool saves a ton of time.I was able to successfully install all knobs and drawer pulls without any errors. That is huge because if you screw up with the placement of the holes, you will be buying a new cabinet door or drawer front. Spending $175 on this tool is a no brainer if you are an accomplished DIY’r or professional.
Best tool for hardware.
This jig is absolutely awesome! The only thing better than this jig is the customer service. I recently called to inquire about some other products and received the best phone service I have ever encountered in my life. It is so refreshing to see a company out there that actually has their act together. Thank you true position!
So let’s just get this out of the way; this thing is very expensive compared to other options. But good gracious does it work!I had 50+ pulls that were both 128mm and 160mm, in addition a 9′ appliance pull, and then some knobs. It’s really hard to overstate how easy this jig made the whole process. Set your depth to 1/2 drawer height (assuming you want it centered), set your width to 1/2 handle width (64mm/80mm respectively for my handles) then align the jig with the centerline that you’ve already marked on some blue tape on the front of your drawer. Then drill.Amazingly fast and accurate.I finished in under 3 hours for an entirely new kitchen. I did not have a single mis-drill.I might try to resell it to get some money back, but let me tell you the cost of mis-drilling one door/drawer would have been about the same price as this jig. Well worth it.
Great product. When working with high end cabinets, one mistake can cost you hundreds of dollars. It is well worth the price.
Excellent tool. Makes quick work of cabinet hardware. Just make sure you have it against the stops or you will make a lot of mistakes quickly.
I have been in the cabinet industry for 27 years and this is the best hardware jig I have ever seen and used. The set up for handles takes seconds and does not require a tape measure or tools to accomplish.The only thing that would make this jig better is if the width was longer. I ordered the line jig today as I have a job coming up that will have very long pulls.
OMG, don’t install cabinet/drawer hardware without this. This is a must-have for perfection! It cut my installation time significantly and it all came out so perfect. Looks like it was professionally done. Who says a lady can’t be handy?!
ALL MY HANDES ARE PERFECTEZ TO USE
Works like a charm! Not being a skilled contractor I purchased this to make sure my holes were drilled based on the jig rather than rely totally on the plastic template. The plastic template worked well for most of my handles that were smaller but what I liked most about this jig is the ability to screw the handle into the jig itself so you can line up the alignment right on the door. The plastic templates are great if you want the standard positions. If you want a more custom look but still want to DIY then this tool is worth the investment. I am installing cabinet hardware throughout the home and this tool has certainly reduce the time and provided a higher level of confidence during install.
Great tool – designed and built well. I know that when I set it up, the holes will be where they need to be.
this is hands down the greatest tool for any high level carpenter or at home hobbiest.
a must for a perfect job
This tool is now one of my most prized possessions. Would never install another cabinet handle without it. Installed 28 cabinet handles and drawer pulls in less then 3 hours.
high quality…excellent product…..not inexpensive…but the only way to go if you have more than a few to install…turned a major project (90 holes to drill) into a ‘cake walk’
worked well on one small job. It will be tested on bigger jobs soon
Don’t even try to do a kitchen without this jig!!! Yes, it’s not cheap but it is truly a great tool — for accuracy and time-savings it’s the best thing I have found when mounting knobs and handles. It’s very easy to set up and once you have checked your setting you just go! I did a kitchen with 75 handles in less than 2 hours, another one with 30 handles in about an hour. If you’re doing an IKEA kitchen you will be really happy because the True Position is also labeled in metric.
just the best tool ever
Hands down the best cabinet hardware jig you can buy for installing cabinet hardware!I am a professional carpenter and this is the only tool I use to install hardware on all my cabinet sets. This tool is amazingly accurate and can be used on all types of cabinets, recessed or flat.It can cost you more than the price of this tool if you mess up one of your cabinet doors or drawers. This will help take the chance for errors drastically down. Small, light weight, we’ll built aluminum, tough tool!This is expensive because you will never have to buy another one.The only thing that will eventually wear out is the steel guides, but they sell them so you don’t have to buy the whole tool again. I have personally used this tool to put hardware on over 75 cabinet sets and I am nowhere near replacing the guides yet. I’m thinking about 300 to 400 sets and I will have to replace them. This tool is worth every penny for pro’s and amateurs alike!
If you install hardware on a regular basis this is the jig you want. It will pay for itself in one or two jobs. The only issue I had was learning that the set screws have to be very tight or they will loosen up and the guides will start to move. The set screws need to be slightly more than finger tight. Or put some Teflon tape on them so the screws do not loosen up for a finger tight snugness. I am going to get the jig for drilling shelf pin holes that goes with this system because I like the quality of this jig so much.
My husband and son love the True Position Drill guide. It’s well made and provides a true guide for drilling holes. It’s perfect for woodworking projects.
Local cabinet installer wanted $3.50 per HOLE (not per pull) so the cost of the tool paid for itself in it’s first use. I installed 90 drawer and cabinet pulls in matter of a few hours and every one of the pulls were perfectly aligned and placed. I’m sure that I will use it again over the years or I’ll lend it to my family & friends.
I little pricey for a jig to just put handles on, but honestly it’s well made and when you do a few kitchens you are thankful that you have it.
This does what it says it can do easy to use great tool
This tool is worth its weight in gold if you’re installing cabinet hardware. Loved it! I’m a little sad all of my hardware is installed, I want to use it again. The key is the setup, obviously, and making sure you made your measurements and placements correct. Once you get it setup (which is pretty easy) things fly along. There’s little room for error as long as you’re careful. I installed hardware in a kitchen, two bathrooms, and a laundry room in under 2 hours. It’s expensive, but not bad considering the cost of replacing a mis-drilled drawer or cabinet, or the amount of time you’ll save.
I’m a cabinet builder who has been in business for over 20 years. This is the Best jig I have ever used for door and drawer hardware.
one of the best tools a true craftsman should have in their tool box. I recently did a job with 38 sets of holes, that’s 76 separate holes.. Before this trusted tool you would have to measure for each hole, then drill the 76 holes hoping you were dead nuts on. Chances are you may be a fraction off using this old method … of measuring for each hole. With my new ‘True Position Hardware Jig’ no problem… just set up the drill guides, measure the positing for each set of holes, set up your ‘ drill guides, and you will be ‘ dead nuts on’. No more guess work or hoping you measured all 76 holes correctly. With this jig no guess work, just measure for positioning centered or what ever the drawer calls for and you will be ‘ dead nuts on’ each time.This jig has helped to cut my hardware installation time by more then half, and with less guess work and hoping you got it right… It’s worth the money and in the end you can do more hardware installations which means a better job and more of them as a result, Production is up, revenue is up, and my time spent on the job for hardware installation is cut by more then half. Every true craftsman should have the ‘ True Position Hardware Jig’ ….Thank you Joe V, Omaha, NE
I am a kitchen installer and usually make my own jigs for handles and knobs but since I purchased this I wonder how I have gotten along without it . the ease of use and accuracy is incredible will be buying another for my other crew soon. thanks for offering this product on your site.
Outstanding, PROFESSIONAL tool. Saved $750 putting all the handles and drawer pulls on in our new house. Pros often charge $1 per hole… do the math. Paid for the device with savings in the kitchen alone. VERY easy to use and extremely versatile. Not anything like the little flimsy cheap plastic guides. This is quality aluminum with hardened steel guides for the drill bit. Makes FAST work of installing a whole series of knobs and pulls. Easily adjustable for almost any configuration. HIGHLY recommended.
This is an excellent tool, well built, easy to use and accurate. Makes all you hardware look professionally installed.
Couldn’t have been more satisfied would recommend highly
I purchased this to install cabinet pulls in my new house. I was a little hesitant since it cost so much, but wow, this thing is amazing. Its perfect for installing cabinet hardware larger than 3′. I was able to install 6′ pulls throughout my house.Plus it has drill guides directly on the jig so its literally just set it and start drilling. Drill bit included too!If you have any doubt about if this is worth i just think about why to buy it:- Larger than 3′ pulls- Want drill bit guides to stabilize drill holes- easily repeatable results on all cabinets
We remodeled our kitchen ourselves and the last part was installing the hardware. Of course, we wanted the new cabinets pulls that are so big and none of the guides we could find would fit. I didn’t feel like making my own jig, so I got this one. It’s pricey, but worked like a charm. I am impressed!
great tool , extremely accurate , a real time saver
Will buy again. Great product.
Must have product for professionals or DIY-ers. Great easy to use and well made here in the USA. Price might seems a little high at first, don’t worry it will pay for itself in the first job. Also I don’t mind paying for quality product and support a small US business who is kept manufacturing in the country. I used many other different types of jigs and used different methods by far True Position jig is the overall winner.
Easy to use. Perfect alignment on the knobs and pulls I installed in my new kitchen. Was so happy with it, my bathrooms and laundry room also have new hardware!!!
None of my cabinets in my entire house (bathrooms, kitchen) had pulls and handles. I was always reluctant to start the project due to not being able to precisely place the holes in the right spot. This jig made the whole project effortless. Great product.
This jig was worth every penny. My wife and I installed over 50 handles in our kitchen in about two hours and everything came out perfect. Saved hours of time and grief trying to line everything up with a paper template or cheaper jig. Highly recommended.
very helpful to make the holes for handle!
The best jig ever , saves time and costly mistakes,
This is PROFESSIONAL grade strength stuff. It will last a long time.
Worth every penny. That is the only way I can describe this. I am a complete DIY’er and after these cabinets, I really do not have an immediate need for this. I am keeping it though. This really is not all that expensive considering you are drilling holes into cabinets that are worth thousands of dollars. For those who work in the industry mounting cabinet hardware, surely this tool is a time-saver.I have only done the doors so far as I am waiting for the drawers pulls to arrive. With this tool, I was able to mount the hardware on over 30 doors in just about an hour and they all look perfectly aligned. The hardest part was figuring out the initial setting of where I wanted the knobs located on the doors. Then it was just put on, drill, screw, repeat.Of course I wish it was less expensive, but for something that seems so simple, it is truly worth every penny.
easy set up for multiple width doors and drawers.
Great Tool very easy to use.
Installed 77 cabinet pulls in just one day. Amazing! Intuitive tool that made installing pulls on both doors and drawers quick and easy. Well worth the cost of the tool. Once it was set it was easily reversible for left and right hand swings.
My cabinet installers were taking a lot of time to install hardware, getting it a little off sometimes, and not making or using the shop made jigs they used to make for every job. I decided to invest in an Italian Sports Car jig. This is worth every penny. Paid for itself on the first job, 78 pcs of 8 inch spread cabinet pulls. In fact, my installer said the jig was more precise than the hardware itself! They actually had to tweak a couple of pulls that were off!
Simply a must have tool for the finish carpenter. Do the math, set the jig and bore away. I do all the doors first, then the pull outs (trash, recycling, etc) and then the drawers. Only way to screw up is with a mathematical error. I honestly don’t remember how I installed hdw without this tool. And as an example of how great it is, I can install an average 30-40 box kitchen in under 30 mins.
This jig is a must have if you’re a cabinet installer. I was using the Sommerfield jig, until the last job and it kept messing up.Doors are NOT cheap to replace!It is a bit pricey, but the results are always accurite, so therefore it’s like the old saying,’You get what you pay for.’Overall I give it a 5 star rating.
Expensive at first blush, but built to last forever! I have an older one about 15 years old, and a newer one. Bone is kept in the work van, one in the shop. Accurate, easy to use, incredibly versatile for door ad drawer hardware.
It works really good
A must of cabinet makers and anyone who installs cabinet handles.
Expensive, but made installing non-standard (european) drawer/door pulls throughout the house, a piece of cake.
‘Worth every penny’ I’ll second that!Used Festool 5mm drill bit.
top quality. made installing hardware a breeze on 50 cabinets.
Absolutely the best jig ever. Totally worth the $190 bucks. This tool is awesome.
this tool is the bomb wouldnt go to work with out it. well made and easy to use. if you make a mistake with cabinets you can usualy fix it but if you drill a door or drawer wrong you are sunk. i highly recommend this tool
super nice jig am getting a second one for my son.
The TP-1934 is not inexpensive. It is elegantly designed, beautifully made, and a joy to use. If you install hardware frequently do yourself a favor and buy one. It will pay for itself in no time with faster better work and fewer mistakes. If you are a DIYer and only have a few handles to install, well it’s hard to justify the cost, but on the other hand it is cheaper than messing up an expensive cabinet door.I bought it to install 9 pulls (though there will be more in the future). There were three different setups. It took just a few moments to set up the jig and drill the holes, correctly, every time. I’ve installed a fair number of pulls without this jig and I’m always nervous. The TP-1934 made the job easy, even fun. Eliminating the stress and mistakes from what can be a nerve wracking job was well worth the money. I don’t regret a penny of the price.
This is a great universal tool that is used everyday at our facility to mark and drill drawer fronts. A great time saving device.
easy to use, and change from one size to another. I highly recommend it for any cabinet builder.I have been using wooden templates that I made myself for years but this eliminates the need for any of those any more.
It worked great and saved alot of time, I had over 59 pulls to put on at 5 inches on center. It was worth every penny.
Just finished using the TP1934 to do a kitchen/ full pantry, master & guest baths & it worked great. No, actually it worked perfectly for about 75 cabinets & drawers.First time I’ve ever installed cabinet hardware, and this was on our new cabinets, so needless to say I was a bit nervous. Lots of measure twice- drill one happened today, but by the time I was half way through, i was very comfortable with it & it all went perfectly.Highly recommended for anyone. Well worth the price.
I enjoy tools good tools and this one is Fine well made, accurate and easy to setup and a pleasure to use. The instructions were well written and easy to understand. After it was set up I test fit a handle on it to double check my self ‘right on’. In the next day and a half I installed 100+ Handles on doors and drawers easily .
We had to put pulls on kitchen and bath cabinets. This was an overall 70+ pulls. The jig madethe positioning easy and so accurate. NO miss drilled holes
Purchased to install Hardware throughout new home. This item is worth every penny and then some! Easy to use, very well made. Highly recommended.
I have been doing trim and cabinet work for many years this is one of the best tools I have purchased, Why didn’t they have this 30 years ago. Great addition to my tool box
perfect for me and hubby! we did put our handles and knobs to our drawers and kitchen, man look like installed by PRO!
Very well made, does exactly what it is meant to do with precision,Would definetly reccomend. the shelf pin extensions are also reccomended.
Rated a five because it was so easy to use. Adjusted easily and changed over from knobs to handles with ease. No more loss of time making jigs and taping drawer pulls. What a time saver………especially on large kitchens with numerous knobs and handles.
We gave this tool a 5 star because it is a wonder tool! It enabled us to install new kitchen handles in minutes! No tricky measuring, no slipping position. I would recommend this jig to any woodworker or even the weekend warrior! And the price was very affordable and the delivery was very quick.
excellent quality tool. Easy to set up and use, everything makes sense, Takes the mistakes out. Tool is a little expensive so will take I little while to pay for it..
Easy to set, mark and hold. Sturdy, well bit with metal lined drilling holes. This Jig, is the best yet!
Used this for installing cabinet handles and it made the job very easy and every hole was spot on. Highly recommended.
I purchased the TP 1935, but for most people the TP 1934 will do. I build cabinets and everyone wants a different style and size pull or handle. This guide is precision made and can handle all of them. a simple twist of a knob and set the handle width. Twist the other knob and set the set off distance from the edge, top or bottom. Drill your holes and move on. I’ve dropped it on concrete and didn’t faze it. It’s a bit expensive but since it can easily handle whatever you throw at it I think it’s worth it.The only negative is the price. If they would knock about $50 off I think they would be a best seller!
High Quility, easy to use, and saves time. I installed two kitchens with hardware, kitchens had the same amount of hardware, the first took 2 hours and 15 min. the next one took 1 hour and 30 min. The more I used the jig it took less time per handle.
This jig works extremely well! Accurate scales made it simple to set drill guides to the proper spacing. Large contact point with door/drawer made it easy to hold the jig in place while drilling. Using this jig cuts the time to install cabinet/drawer hardware in half.
I’m a ‘suit’ with home repair / remodeling as a major hobby. For a total kitchen renovation, I decided to do most things myself – including installing 28 door / drawer pulls. This device is straightforward, simple to use, flawlessly designed and executed. For accuracy, time savings, confidence building and excellent results, the tp-1934 was well worth the price.
I used the TP1934 for drilling out our custom kitchen cabinets handles. This was a dreaded task but wow was it easy with this! I looked at a few other jigs including the align rite, some cheaper ones from retail wood stores, but none matched the quality and ease of use of this product. I suggest getting the TP1935 if you have hardware with a spacing larger than 12′ to install or plan to do any adjustable shelving holes. We were able to add the long hardware / line boring extensions on separately but would have been cheaper to buy together. I highly suggest this product to anyone doing this professionally or a DIY homeowner like myself who likes things done right without re-do’s!
Great tool extremely efficient, I bought a set of cabinets and had to install the hardware. This tool worked great everything came out even and precise. I thought for sure I was gonna mess it up, but this tool is idiot proof-I love it and my wife is happy too. Came in one day after ordering.
Ordered this jig based on reviews I read online at various sites. Had about 65 knobs & handles to install & lowest bid I got to install them was $300. So this jig paid for itself & then some. It’s easy to set up & use & is dead on once it is set and as long as you hold it tight against the workpiece. Plus, it’s made in the USA!
It’s a great jig. Pricy, but worth the cost if you use it for a living. Replacement cabinet doors can be $100+/- if you mess up and poke a hole in the wrong spot. Saves time in labor and wood jigs wear out quick. I’m glad there is finally a case.
Works okay but I feel a little over priced.
This adjustable jig works pretty well and the bit it comes with is not bad. I just thought that for the price there would be some kind of bearing or replaceable bushing that would of been included because while drilling the bit kinda squeaks and feels like its going to wear out and get sloppy fast. I did 3 kitchens with it and so far its not showing any signs of wear. I also add a drop or two of oil to the bit and guide during use. The adjustability is endless and precise. Much better than making jigs out of wood and tossing them. Theres only so square you can hold your drill when making jigs yourself. I never made a perfect one without a drill press.
Overall great product. It does take a bit to figure out exactly how to use it. Also, guides could be made to clamp more securely. It would be great if it could clamp to the drawer/door. It can be difficult to hold while drilling. Also it’s extremely overpriced for a couple of metal rulers fused together with a couple of guides attached. Could probably get by just fine by making your own jig out of plywood, but I wanted a tool that would make the process easier, that I could use again later if needed.
The unit is smaller than I had anticipated.
