New Ryobi Door Lock Installation Kit

July 26th, 2010

Ryobi has started offering a new door lock installation kit.   The model #A99DLK2 Kit runs just $30 but has some nifty features.  Like most typical door lock jigs, this one properly aligns the handle holes and the lock so that everything fits properly.  What struck me as unique about the Ryobi one however is the ‘Auto-strike-locator’.  This little tab hangs out for the jig, and with the door almost closed rests in the strike plate.  The holes can then be drilled and the lock will align perfectly with the strike plate.  A nice simple way to eliminate any need for measuring.
