  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset with Juno Knob in Venetian Bronze is rated 3.5769 out of 5 by 26.
    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 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could be better Bought the Door Knob Set from Home Depot on their website. It arrived and i checked the measurements and everything matched what it needed to be. However the bottom lock does not work. The level gets stuck and if the dead bolt is not locked, the door can just be pushed open. I have Kwikset locks on all my other doors and they work great. This is the first time i have had an issue with my Kwikset knobs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lock is amazing We had a problem with the lock and not even a locksmith could break into my home easily. It took him 2 hours and 8 bits to get us in. This is what you buy a lock for to keep people out!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Service Terrible Set I initially received the Montara as a warranty replacement for a discontinued model that I've owned for a long time. After a few months the new set started to frequently fail; the cylinder would lock and jam during normal operation which simply prevented the key from being turned or pulled out from its socket.I contacted Customer Service and was able to get a replacement set about a month later. It took a little while so I decided to pick up the same set at which arrived in less than a week. The second set had many issues from the get go. I was not able to lock or unlock from the inside if screws holding the handle set in place were tightened. If I didn't tighten those screws then I would have a handle that was extreme loose on the door. So I returned the second set to Home Depot.When the third set arrived, I found that it had the same issues, but it is slightly more tolerable. I did have to contact Customer Service to request for another knob as the one that came with third set was not working as it should.I have the third set for about a year now and I can tell you that it's not good...I wouldn't necessary buy it knowing that it has so many problems. As a matter of fact the key still occasionally gets jammed in the lock. I had to use my garage door to leave my house just the other day because someone couldn't retrieve the key so she decided to leave it in the door due to being late for work.I give this product two stars simply because I like customer service. The product is not good.

    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 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.

          Can the Single Cylinder Deadbolt on the Montara Model 553MNHXJ 15 SMT be replaced with a SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt Lock?

    Asked by: Fralan
    Hello Fralan,Thank you for your interest in the Kwikset SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt Locks. The stand alone single cylinder deadbolt at the top of the Montara handleset can be replaced with the SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt Lock of your choice. The SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt Locks require a bore hole of 2-1/8”, which is the same size bore hole the Montara single cylinder deadbolt requires.Thank you.Kwikset Support Team
