Compared to traditional methods, the easy-to-use device saves contractors & fitters up to 20 minutes when installing a handle and latch to interior doors.

We developed the Jigtech product from concept through to prototyping, testing and volume manufacturing, drawing on our experience of developing tools for the DIY sector.

The innovative product incorporates an adjustable latch bore and self-centring clamp system that quickly marks out and guides the user when drilling a door. Using the jig alondside Dale’s door furniture, latch, and spacer system simplifys the installation process even further.

Joint Managing Director, Dale Hardware "AME Group have come up with a simple but effective solution to the brief, that sets a new standard for speed and accuracy in the fitting of door handles and latches. This is the first product in the JigTech tool range, AME has helped to create a unique brand proposition that can be implemented across future products.”
