  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT REPLACEMENT! I had purchased a similar handle set more than 5 years ago and did not have the receipt. I called Kwikset and explained that the polished brass finish was coming off. The representative had me send in a photo, they identified the current replacement and sent to me, FREE OF CHARGE, a new handle set. I was extremely pleased with the results. Consequently, I told friends and family of the superior support Kwikset has and advised them to purchase Kwikset higher line of products. I will never purchase another brand based upon my experience with Kwikset.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look and feel I bought this set but did not use the included upper deadbolt. I purchased the 909 smartcode electronic deadbolt in the same finish (wish they sold them as a set). It was the perfect fit for my family. I have the security of having 2 locks, yet the ease of just using the top 909 smartcode electronic deadbolt when my kids are going in and out of the house all day long (read my review on the 909). My wife likes the finish and the feel of the Handleset. Installation was easy and the awesome addition of smartkey and the anti lock bumping feature is a huge piece of mind. I've recommended this product combination to my neighbors who have kids. I've had the Handleset for about 2 years now and it's held up well to kids and the elements.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Great front door lock system. The combination of a locking door handle and deadbolt lock has made my wife safer, and our home more secured. The quality is great so far...

    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 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic warranty and support! Recieved this as a replacement for a very old set that was getting difficult to fully retract the latch. contacted customer support and the technician identifed the best match and sent a new complete handset!! It was very easy to install and had smart key so I keyed it to my existing key MYSELF and that was very easy also! Fantastic customer support and service. Kwikset is the ONLY lockset hardware I will consider in the future.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product with Smartkey Feature & 2 Locks! Installed 3 years ago on a double door entry. Used 2 sets and put one on each door (was told I couldn't do so, that it would "sag", but I tried it anyway.....and it works!). Had alot of wasted parts to do this (guts), and was expensive overall, but I get lots of complements! No mechanical issues and satin nickel finish is nice. Like the smart key function, easy to match locks up and make changes... I bought Montara with two-points of locking, this way I give vendors only the bottom key to get in (when necessary, like a housekeeper) and I, only, have the key to the deadbolt lock. Now buying another home....and need new locks...will buy this one again! Thus why I decided to comment...good job Kwikset....

  • When we use the door, the latch doesn't retract as deep as it used to, making increasingly more difficult to open the door. Is there a way to get the door handle to pull the latch in deeper like when we first bought it?

    In order to use this for a double door I am buying 2 of them. The second will be a dummy(no latch). What item will I use on the inside of the dummy door? For example on the Inside I don't want a deadbolt, so I need a plate to cover that whole.

    Asked by: Jesse
    Hello Jesse, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 553MNHXJ-15-SMT. At the time there are no plans to make a dummy for this model. As an alternate solution you may install two active Montara Handlesets and the side that you wish to have non-active would be installed without the latch. The cylinder would remain inside the knob but would be non-active. For assistance with additional questions please contact Kwikset Consumer Service at 1-800-327-5625. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team
