  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Polished Brass is rated 3.8095238095238093 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This really did the job Back in February of 2014 my wife and I changed out our original Kwikset Handle Set. We purchased our new Kwikset Handle Set with the following. Exterior: Montara #553MNH Venetian Bronze Finish (with Rounded Latch Plates and Smart Key), the Interior: Tustin #978TNL Satin Nickel Finish (LH Door). The Smart Key worked perfectly, it allowed me to key the new handleset to match all of the other keyed alike doors in the home. It looks great and operates flawlessly we really like this product.

    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 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 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 2 out of 5 by from smartkey did not work bought this for my owner occupied home. I am a real estate investor and have used the smart key locks before. I was able to rekey the deadbolt without an issue. It did not work so well on the door knob. neither the old key nor new works. new key works fine in the deadbolt. I am now left with a dysfunctional door know lock. Due to my door holes being incorrectly too close to each other by the previous owner I have already returned too of the sets because there was not enough room between the deadbolt and the handle. I really do not want to completely uninstall and return another one.

    Just purchased this lockset and the box and instructions indicate that it should have come with both an interior knob and lever yet this is not the case. No lever included. Care to comment. 

    Asked by: Joedc
    Hello Joedc,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 553MNHXJ-11P-SMT. The instructions just show both items so you have the needed information to install depending on what you purchased, the insturctions are not separate instructions for knob and lever. This model # indicates that there is a knob in the box.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team
