Is it just me, or does it seem like this jig is WAY overkill for a simple problem?

I’m sure I have installed tens of thousands of cabinet doors since the mid 1980’s using scrap blocks of wood cut to specific lengths to prop the hinge, or the door in the desired location.

Depending on the hinge type and cabinet type there are several different methods that can be used.

I wouldn’t let not having this jig stop you from getting a good result. (I’ve never even seen something like this until this post)
It seems a bit gimmicky to me. YMMV of course.
