This Roto H650 multipoint door lock features no locking points and is suitable for the passive door on a pair of French doors.
The H650 is Roto's latest lock and this is the passive version for use on French doors.
The H650 is Roto's newest lever operated lock. Its is available in a large range of different configurations, although many of those are only sold in Europe and occasionally end up fitted to an imported door. This range is manufactured in Germany.
The H650 replaces the H600, but locking points remain in the same positions. In turn, the H600 replaced a large range of Roto locks (we called some of them "Mk2" or MVD locks). Those locks have locking points in different positions and, if replacing them, some work will be required to the door. Double spindle locks are no longer available, so the double spindle nightlatch function may not be able to be used. Its also worth noting that new Roto locks feature mushrooms, so old roller locks will require new keeps.
Identifying a Roto lock is fairly easy as the name will be stamped on the faceplate. Check the measurements for the locking points once the lock has been removed from the door to confirm the model required. Also watch out for the Elite range of locks. Some of these locks are the same as the old Mk2/MVD locks and can provide a useful alternative (although additional roller keeps are often required).
Roto H650 gearboxes are dimensionally the same as the H600 series, but feature internal upgrades. They are available in a 35mm or 45mm backset with single spindle operation, only.
The H650 gearbox measures 212mm high by the backset + 15mm. The latch is 29mm high, the deadbolt is 30mm high and there is 58mm between the bottom of the latch and the top of the deadbolt. Gearboxes are fitted to faceplates with three screws. The top to middle screw measures 70mm, whereas the middle to bottom screw measures 125mm.
Roto H650 multipoint door lock gearboxes feature a "whisper latch" as standard fitment. This latch has a central plastic component to ensure that the door closes quietly. It's worth noting that Roto did supply these locks with other types of latch, which although rare, may not feature the plastic insert.
European markets feature locks with 25mm up to 80mm backsets, but locks with 35mm and 45mm are sold in the UK. When measuring the backset, allow 2-3mm for the faceplate, so a 35mm backset gearbox will measure 32mm when not fixed to the strip.
