  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset with Juno Knob in Satin Nickel is rated 3.5333 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working after less than a month. In April 2014 I repainted my front door, but new hardware was not in the budget. About a year later I won a promotion from a local grocery store and the prize was a gift card to Lowe's. I knew exactly what I was going to get - new hardware! My excitement has turned to disappointment. I had this set installed less than a month ago and the dead bolt is broke. It can be locked from inside, but the keyhole outside somehow turned horizontal and key won't go in. Hopefully Kwikset will stand behind their product and help me out!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems after only one year The cyclinder is catching and its difficult to open the door. Lubricating does not work. The problem is mechanical. Very disappointing. Will try to salvage it. Otherwise, will request refund. I bought a beautiful new door and the lock to go with it. Wondering if I'll be able to find something to match the lower hole position in my door or if it will forever sport a patched hole. What a hassle.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Premature and total failure Have a similar lock. The doorknob on the inside fell off! Cannot put it back- do not see how it can be re-attached. The lever knob on the inside, to lock the dead bolt, also fell off, but that can be re-attached. This is the front door, which isn't used all that much. Now it is impossible to get out of the front door from the inside. Need to remedy this asap, so that in an emergency we can get out! Seems a terribly premature failure. The set we have was installed professionally, and is several years old. Not impressed at all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really frustrated We bought this beautiful lock set tonight after a day of painting. Needless to say we were exhausted. Opened the box laid out all the parts and no instructions to install it. We had to have a lock on the door tonight so the old lock is being put back on the door and this lock will be retuned to the store tomorrow and we will buy another brand. I did find the instructions online but my husband does not use a computer so it would have to be printed out for him also the computer is in one room the door in the other. Shouldn't have to do this for something that costs this much.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good from the outside Bought the Montana set about 6 months ago at HomeDepot. Generally happy with the product. However it is unfortunate that with the Montana you can not choose a different color/style handle-set for the inside. I wanted a brass polished handlebar and inside - not the satin nickel doorknob. Tried all other available variations of handlebars from Kwik but nothing was compatable. Therefore I had to manually manipulate the locking pin extension (cut the length of the pin and reduce the diameter on one side of to fit the inside and outside handlebar). It works but it is somewhat of an improvised solution. I wish there would be more flexibility to choose inside handlebar. Otherwise the handle set and smart key option is great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mechanically Excellant. Finish, Not So Much. Bought this Handleset a little over a year ago and it works like a champ. The finish is another story. The Handleset itself has discolored, taking on a "yellowish" tint. The deadbolt itself does not seem to have suffered the same aging effect, making them not so much of a "set" anymore.
