Cabinetmakers use shop-made or commercial drilling jigs to speed the mounting of Euro hinges on their doors. What sets the EZ-Mount apart from basic drilling jigs is that it also holds the hinge in place, allowing you to use the hinge plate itself as a guide. With the EZ-Mount you can drill the pilot holes with one drill and screw the plate to the cabinet with another. The jig comes as a set of two: one jig for inset doors and one for full overlay doors, and are available for Salice and Blum brand hinges.
