    Just bought and unpacked from our local Menards. The directions drawings show the steel template screen printing for “THIS SIDE TO DOOR & JAMB DOOR” on opposite side compared to physical steel part! Any help appreciated!

    Response from Milescraft: The stamping issue on the steel template is being resolved on our end and will be corrected immediately. The instruction manual is correctly labeled. All you will need to do is follow the directions in the manual and you will get results. We apologize for any confusion that this has caused!

    Does exactly as it is intended as a template.

    Important to note that door trim in an existing doorway must be removed for the kit to work properly.

What should I do if the stop on the jamb prevents the template frame from going over it?

If the stop on the door jamb exceeds the height of the template frame, you will want to create a shim or spacer to accommodate the additional height that you will need. Please be sure that the router bit will still properly ride along the inside of the hinge template after your spacer is in place.

What do I do if more horizontal depth is required than the thickness selector cam permits?

It may be necessary to remove the thickness selector assembly (red knob, spring, and cam) from each end of the metal frame to permit a deeper location of the frame/template.  Of course, doing this eliminates the automatic parallel alignment capability of the metal plate, so you must measure carefully to be sure the distances to the holes are correct before attaching the plate to the door or frame.  Be sure to re-install the thickness selector cam assemblies to the metal plate when that unusual job is completed, so the parts do not get lost.
