  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Satin Nickel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    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 4 out of 5 by from Handsome Easy to install, looks elegant. Only downside is the actual locking mechanism. The little center part of the inside knob is difficult to turn with just your fingertips. All the other Kwikset door locks in our house operate easily. Because of the complexity of this locking mechanism you are turning a lot of "stuff" in the internal lock mechanism with only your fingertips. Guess I need to start doing finger exercises! I can imagine someone with hand arthritis would have a great deal of difficulty with this.

  • My last question was not answered. I wish to know the distance from the center of the deadbolt to the very bottom of the deadbolt, the distance from the center of the hole for the handle to the very top of the handle, to find the space in between.

    What is the distance between the very bottom of the deadbolt and the very top of the handleset, assuming the standard 5.5" spacing "B" on the bore holes? Our front door is slightly less than the standard, need to know if enough room.

    Asked by: David in Superior

    Can I get the cameron knob with the montara or can I buy a cameron knob & switch it? Would it also have to be keyed?

    Asked by: jag
    Hello jag,The Kwikset Montara interior pack must be ordered with the model series #978 and your desired knob. Purchasing a keyed entry knob and switching it will not allow the compatibility for both knob and handle set.Thank you,Kwikset Support
