Kreg Hardware Installation Jigs

New Kreg Hardware Installation Jigs Cover Cabinets, Concealed Hinges, and Drawer Slides

Kreg continues to narrow the gap between the amateur and professional carpenter with the introduction of three new Kreg hardware installation jigs. Well-known for their pocket hole jigs (along with measuring, cutting, and routing solutions), Kreg pushes deeper with the cabinet hardware jig, 35 mm concealed hinge jig and bit, and drawer slide jig.

These new products make a lot of sense as additions to the Kreg family. You can already layout, guide saws, clamp, rout, and join wood together with Kreg products, so hardware installation is the finishing touch.

Now you’ll be able to start with lumber and end with a finished product using those signature blue Kreg tools at every step. We love our K4 jig, so we’re anxious to to see what kind of results we’ll get from the new Kreg hardware installation jigs. In the meantime, here’s what to expect.
