The locks appear to be well constructed, but--as with the other reviewer--there is no template indicating proper spacing. Any help? **Dear Customers-Thank you for your requests for a template. This is something we are in the process of developing.

5 Stars Need directions.

The locks are a five excellent. Directions are nonexistant. Need to know how far apart to mount the parts. After drilling holes too close and too far apart, I finally got a couple of boards to practice on. Spacing instructions would be helpful.

5 Stars Table lock installation

The mechanism works fine. I built a cherry table featured in the American Woodworker. I purchased the table locks based on their recommendation. Installation is trial and error. Instructions or installation tips for aligning the two parts would be helpful.

5 Stars Template information

Product looks great. Template is lacking...so here it is in words: The moving part mounts are 1-3/4"; apart (or 7/8"; from centerline). I mounted this 3/4"; from edge. The static part mounts are 1-1/2"; apart (or 3/4"; from centerline). 5/8"; from edge is loose. 11/16"; from edge is too tight. 21/32"; is about right. Beware of warp in the edges of the table or table leaves. Distance is critical, so precision is of the essence. **Dear Customer, thank you for your detailed instructions! Van Dyke's Restorers
