This article will explain how to change a Roto Multipoint lock with the 13-3/8 faceplate to a HOPPE
lock – This is the recommended conversion when changing a Roto roller version to a HOPPE tongue
version when the discontinued Roto is not available.

Please read entire article before attempting to replace lock.

Remove Old Roto Hardware:

   1. Remove keyed cylinder, handles, and trim plates.

   2. Remove all screws from edge of door faceplate.

   3. Remove the two roller strike plates from door jamb.

   4. The Latch and Deadbolt strike can be removed or remain in place at this time.


Install New HOPPE Hardware - Bottom Gear

   1. Install bottom gear, be sure the face seats properly into groove. A block of wood can be used to
       seat the faceplate by gently tapping. In some cases, it might be necessary to use a razor knife or
       chisel to remove excess wood. The handle height should be at 36 inches and the bottom of the
       faceplate flush with the door – If faceplate is too long, trim as needed.

   2. Install stainless steel screws; do not over tighten.

   3. Re-install the trim plates and handles; be sure everything lines up properly before installing two
       screws to secure lock in place. DO NOT over tighten, just snug. If changing interior and
       exterior handle trim, the screw holes may need to be re-drilled.

   4. Close door and with a pencil, mark the jamb were the spring latch and deadbolt will strike jamb
       plate. It might be necessary to drill the hole deeper so the replacement lock will engage
       properly.




       Note: The HOPPE Deadbolt should fit back into the same hole as the Roto. However, The

       spring latch is off approximately 3/4” The best solution is to remove strike plate and enlarge
       hole.

   5. After marking the spring latch position, remove Latch / Deadbolt strike and use hack saw to cut
       away the excess material.

   6. Locate proper position for new tongue strike plate and screw into place. Using a razor knife
       trace around strike plate. Remove strike and mortise the thickness of the plate so it will be flush
       with the wood jamb.




   7. Reinstall the latch / deadbolt strike then the bottom tongue strike and check function of new
       lock. The bottom tongue should lock in the center of the strike and the spring latch should hold
       the door shut. Extend Deadbolt, If the deadbolt drags on the plate, file off excess as needed. If
       not sure which side to file, push door in and check locking of deadbolt, then pull door out and
       check; this will let you know which edge needs to be filed.
