What is a Template

A template or cabinet template is used to install cabinet hardware on a door or drawer. It provides various center to center measurements that helps you first mark where your cabinet pulls or hardware are going to be installed. A template usually comes with a drill bit that is used to drill through the holes that were marked out for your hardware. In some instances, you can build your own template as well based on knowing where you want to install your hardware. Typically, however, templates are relatively inexpensive and we recommend purchasing a trusted template to help finalize your cabinet install the right way without any costly errors on the final step of hardware installation.
