FUHR no longer ships its products to the United States, and direct replacements for FUHR products are
not readily available. All About Doors & Windows can help you find a replacement for your FUHR
multipoint lock.

This article pertains specifically to replacing an automatic or manual style FUHR multipoint lock with
2 locking rollers (automatic version has an additional third roller that triggers the locking motion). This
tutorial will detail how to remove original FUHR lock and replace it with a HOPPE manual-operation
multipoint lock with 2 locking rollers.

Summary of Replacement Process (Detailed Steps Follow)

   1. Remove existing lock

   2. Trim bottom of new lock if necessary

   3. Trim top extension of new lock if necessary

   4. Attach upper extension

   5. Install lock

   6. Modify or replace deadbolt strike plate

   7. Move top roller strike plate if necessary



Detailed Steps:

First Things First: Remove the Old Lock

   1.    Use a pencil to mark height of
         handle on edge of door panel before
         removing lock. Use the alignment
         line on the faceplate of the lock to
         mark the door. New lock has to be
         at same handle height for rollers to
         line up with jamb-side strikes.

   2.    Loosen set screws on base of
         handles and remove handles.

   3.    Remove interior / exterior
         escutcheon plates.

   4.    Unscrew cylinder screw on door
         edge (where latch is located), and
         remove cylinder.

   5.    Lock runs entire length of vertical
         edge of door. Remove all screws.

   6.       Remove the multipoint lock from the door edge.

   7.       Attach upper extension of new lock to new lock body (picture below).




   8.       Line up new lock with old lock so handle alignment lines are matched up; note dimension
            differences and similarities:

        •    Lock bodies are similar length and width
        •    Deadbolts are different widths and in different locations
        •    New HOPPE lock is taller than original FUHR
        •    Distance from bottom of lock to handle on new HOPPE lock may be shorter or longer than
             original lock
        •    Position of top and bottom rollers on new lock should be within an inch and a half of rollers
             on old lock
        •    If original FUHR lock was an automatic lock, you will note that new HOPPE lock does not
             have an auto-release roller just above the handle
        •    HOPPE locks come with a mishandling device, located between the deadbolt and spring
             latch, which keeps the locks from engaging unless door is closed (mishandling device is
             depressed); mishandling device prevents the lock from banging up the door jamb


Trim That Lock (If You Need to)

The new lock will fit in your door. You might have to make some modifications first, though.

   9.       If lock is too long on bottom: On door edge, measure from alignment line made in step 1 to
            bottom of door panel. On lock take a permanent marker and mark on lock the same
            measurement. Lock needs to be trimmed at this mark with a hacksaw.

   10. If lock is too tall on top: Set lock in door so alignment line is lined up with mark made on

         door's edge in step 1. Use a permanent marker to mark where the top of the door panel hits
         the lock. Trim the top end of the top extension to length with a hacksaw.

   11. If lock is too short on bottom: Install lock as instructed below—lining up the handle
         alignment lines. Once you've installed the lock, there will be a small portion of exposed
         mortise on the door edge. Having extra space at the bottom and top of your door will not
         affect the operation of the lock. To fix the cosmetic issue, trim a portion of the extra faceplate
         removed from the top extension to fit the gap at the bottom of door panel. This can be
         screwed or glued in place.

**NOTE: It is recommended that you use a hacksaw when cutting the top extension to length. A
circular saw will generate heat and cause the metal to change color. Use extreme caution when
trimming lock. Have another person hold the extension or use a clamp and pliers to hold
extension to a table or workbench while trimming. Extension will be hot during and after cutting.
Use sandpaper or a file to smooth cut edges.




Installation

   12. Place lock body in mortise (big hole in the door). Align handle height to mark made at
         alignment spot of old FUHR lock. Install one or two screws to check operation before
         installing the rest of the screws.

   13. To check operation: insert a handle and spindle into the lock. Rollers should engage (move
         down) when handle is cocked up. Keep door open while doing this. If door is closed and
         lock doesn't function, you may not be able to open your door. To check lock while open,
         use fingers to push down on mishandling device or lock will not work.

   13. If door functions properly, tighten and install all screws running up and down length of
         faceplate.

   14. Re-install interior and exterior escutcheon plates, cylinder and handles.

Making the Strike Plates Work

Because deadbolt is in a different spot on new HOPPE lock, strike plate needs modification or
replacement.

All About Doors & Windows has assorted finishes of HOPPE strike plates available on our website at
http://www.allaboutdoors.com.

Strike plate can be reused. Reusing may require just moving strike plate within door jamb or enlarging
deadbolt hole using a hacksaw, rotozip or file.

If replacing deadbolt strike plate, door jamb may require some mortising to make the strike plate fit
level in the jamb. If the jamb is mortised, there will be some exposed cut-out where the original strike
plate was located.

Bottom roller strike should be in correct place for new lock, but top roller strike may need to be moved.
Use a pencil to mark where rollers line up with door jamb. Use a chisel or rotozip to create a new
mortise or to enlarge current mortise to fit strike.

Existing roller strikes at top and bottom of door jamb (pictured at right)
can be reused. Replacements are available, but they don't change the
function or operation of lock and may still require additional
modification of door jamb.

Operating New Lock

   1. Close door and lift handle to engage rollers with strikes.

   2. Twist thumbturn to engage deadbolt lock.

   3. Unlock from inside by twisting the thumbturn and pushing down on the handle; unlock from
       outside using the key and pushing down on the handle.
