Trend Lock Jig
The Trend Lock Jig offers a level of precision and finish that is difficult to achieve when cutting lock and latch mortises by hand.
Setting-out and chiselling a mortise squarely into the thickness of a door stile is not the easiest operation to undertake. The slightest inaccuracy may well result in an ill-fitting lock and a door that is difficult to close. However, using the precision of the router and a simple jig, the result will be a perfect fit every time.
The Trend Lock Jig is designed to alleviate much of the repetitiveness involved in setting-up and ensures that each lock mortise and its face plate recess are cut square and central across the door edge. Using a series of interchangeable templates, the Lock Jig can be used for fitting all popular makes of mortise locks, latches and deadlocks available in the UK. The jig can be used on all types of doors including external glazed and panelled framed doors and internal hollow core doors. The Lock Jig will provide substantial time savings when a number of similar doors require locks fitting. The jig has been designed for use in conjunction with the Trend Hinge Jig to provide the complete door hanging solution.
