  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Polished Brass is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    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 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.

    I would like two replace a Shelburne handle with the Montara exterior only 553 MNH LIP 15 SMT.  Will it work without any changes to the door?  Does the right hand part set # 967 LL RH 15 SMT work with this?  Thanks

    Asked by: Dave1000
    Hello Dave1000,the Shelburne does not have a locking mechanism on the bottom handle set. The bottom interior and exterior will need to be changed so that the interior and exterior are compatible with each other.You will need to order Kwikset model # 978LL RH 15 SMT. As per the description the Montara has a locking mechanism in the handle set as well as the deadbolt.Thank you,Kwikset Support

    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.

    How do we find "all available Signature Series interior packs"? I see references in the questions below, but cannot locate these items on your website. In particular, does the inside Tustin lever have a twist lock like the inside of the bathroom door?

The interior compatible Signature series models for this lock is model series # 978 with the Cameron, circa, Juno Lido Tustin or Cove model in Tuscan Bronze. The interior packs for all of the compatible models have a twist lock like the inside of the bathroom door.Thank you,Kwikset Support
