  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Satin Nickel is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 9.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Awesome I replaced the old unit on my new home and everything fit perfect. I love Kwikset cause I can match as many keys as a like without hassle. If I want to change it, it only takes seconds and I have the only key.
