Unika Compact Lock Jig


The Unika Compact Lock Jig is designed to cut the mortise and face plate recesses for popular door locks.

The lock jig uses a set of interchangeable laminate templates which can be used to cut the following sizes:

Face Plate:                          Lock Body:
6″ x 1″                                   4 1/4″ x 3/4″
4 3/4″ x 1″                            3″ x 3/4″
2 1/4″ x 1″                            7/8″ x 5/8″

Deep mortises can be achieved with a suitable size of auger bit.

Unika Lock Jig produces quick, clean and accurate results on doors (including hardwood) 34mm to 58mm thick.

  • Small and compact means it does the same job as the larger lock jig but a lower cost
  • Made from 12mm hardwearing compact laminate, it is guaranteed never to warp
  • Small single piece jig means it is easy to store and transport to jobs
  • Self centring when clamped to the door

  • Make sure all cables are clear of the router.
  • Make sure the work piece is correctly supported.
  • Always use protective goggles when using the router.
  • Do not switch router on with blade touching the work.
  • Never remove the router when it is switched on and moving.
  • Make sure there are no obstructions to the path of the router.


  • Never try to cut more than 10mm depth on one cut.
  • Do not force the router too fast. This can damage expensive router bits.
  • Never remove the router from the jig whilst it is in motion. Always allow router to stop and switch off before removing.
