How to Replace a Pella Single-Point Mortise Lock with a PZ of 85mm

This is a guide to replacing Pella single-point mortise lock with a PZ measurement of 85mm and a backset of 55mm. The replacement kit used/depicted in this guide is part #40177 (lock case by itself without handleset, cylinder, etc. is part #40176).

This is the original lock and handleset (part #9099998). If your lockset does not have these measurements, this replacement kit will most likely not fit your lock.

Replacement Notes:

  • Remove handles on both sides first, then unscrew set screw just below deadbolt on edge of door.
  • Remove cylinder by pushing out through broad side of door through cylinder hole (lock must be unlocked).
  • Unscrew lock body from door edge and remove from door.
  • Insert new lock body in mortise and screw loosely in place. *Note: New lock body has square edges on faceplate instead of round; may need to chisel out door edge a little to fit new lock body.
  • Mark where cylinder hole may need to be enlarged slightly to accommodate new 60mm backset. Remove lockset and enlarge hole.
  • Reinstall lock and screw tightly in place.
  • Install spindle and handles in place so spindle fits through handle-hole and thumbturn hole is lined up with cylinder hole in lock body. Screw in place.
  • Install cylinder from the inside so key hole is on outside. Open door and install set screw just under deadbolt on edge of door.
  • There are three options when it comes to replacing your deadbolt strike plate (diagram below):
      1. It is possible to reuse your original strike plate by moving it up or down with the door jamb to fit new lock. Alternatively, original strike plate may also be modified with a hack saw to fit new lock.
      2. Or you can replace strike plate with new strike plate (included in kit #40177). *Note: new strike plate has squared ends and door jamb will have to be modified; old cut-out may be visible on door jamb under new strike plate.
      3. Or new optional HOPPE strike plate (part #1963546) can be installed as an alternative; long enough and wide enough to cover old cut-out (HOPPE strike not included in kit).
