The Concealed Hinge Jig takes the guesswork out of installing cabinet doors using concealed hinges. This economical, easy-to-use jig ensures accurate hinge alignment, so you can install doors that fit great and work well. Plus, the Concealed Hinge Jig works with an ordinary drill and the included carbide tipped bit.

The Concealed Hinge Jig allows you to drill cup holes for concealed cabinet door hinges (sometimes called “Euro hinges”) using just a drill. The jig positions an included carbide-tipped bit exactly at the proper position and offset, and drills to the perfect depth every time thanks to a depth stop collar. The jig is simple to use, and it ensures that you can mount cabinet doors that fit great and work properly.

Concealed hinges are great for mounting cabinet doors because they stay out of sight, they’re adjustable, and they work very well. Mounting them, though, requires drilling a large hole at a very specific position and depth. The Kreg Concealed Hinge Jig takes the guesswork out of drilling those holes, and allows you to do it with nothing more than a drill and the carbide-tipped bit that comes with the jig. 

Note: A 1/16" bit is required to drill for hinge-mounting screws. Not included.

The Concealed Hinge Jig consists of a glass-filled nylon base with a hole that receives a drill guide. Indexing cams ensure that the jig positions the bit to drill a hole at the required offset—which is dictated by each hinge—and a built-in stop collar ensures that the cup depth is correct every time. There are even holes that you can use to guide a bit for hinge screw holes. The Concealed Hinge Jig comes with a high-quality, carbide tipped bit to ensure great results.

The Concealed Hinge Jig is designed to be intuitive for beginners to use, but robust enough for professionals. Just pick out your hinges, look up a few basic mounting instructions that come with them, and then set up the Concealed Hinge Jig by adjusting a pair of built-in cams. After that, you’re set to drill hinge cup holes using any ordinary drill. Whether you’re installing one cabinet door or making doors for an entire kitchen, the Concealed Hinge Jig provides reliable, consistent results.

Reviews for "Concealed Hinge Jig"

Average Review:

Guide is weak.

I was pretty happy with this until I fgot to door number 14. After only 28 hinges the center guide started to bind and the dark but was no longer in the center. This is disappointing since I really liked this tool. 1) Set up is quick and easy. 2) I was able to get the holes drilled rather quickly and accurately. 3) The hole guides for the hinge screws were convinient. The only drawback is that the center guide for the drill bit seems to be the weak point.

Too flimsy

Will be OK for those who do not have a drill press. The jig is pretty flimsy and there is too much play in the drill guide. If you are chasing precision your holes will be out more than 2mm. I drill my door hinges so that double doors close with almost no gap. Depending on the hinges used this becomes a challenge using the jig.

First Time User

It has been years since I installed cabinet doors. (30 plus) As a result I had never used European Hinges. We are redoing our kitchen cabinets and wanted the exposed hinge look to go away. I purchased your concealed hinge jig from Woodcraft and found it exactly what I was hoping for. Accurate, simple with a long lasting bit drilling in oak for the 38 hinges I needed to install. Truly performed as the claim, allowing me to do work with a hand held drill that looked like it was done with a drill press. Thank you Kreg!

Makes Installing A Hinge A Breeze

I have installed concealed hinges before, and used another jig, and it only worked with one style. This makes the job effortless, and give you professional results.

Drilling Depth

The jig drills slightly over 1/2" deep when adjusted as described in the instructions. This depth places the tip of the bit very close to the opposite surface when drilling 5/8 material. To prevent breakout you need to tightly clamp backing to the opposite side and shim the bit to reduce the drilling depth. I added a washer on the bit between the stop and the jig to reduce the drilling depth. With the modification and backing, the jig worked quite well.The jig should include more adjustment for the drilling depth.
