  • Montara Two-Point Locking Single Cylinder Handleset with Juno Knob in Venetian Bronze is rated 3.533333333333333 out of 5 by 30.
    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 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really frustrated We bought this beautiful lock set tonight after a day of painting. Needless to say we were exhausted. Opened the box laid out all the parts and no instructions to install it. We had to have a lock on the door tonight so the old lock is being put back on the door and this lock will be retuned to the store tomorrow and we will buy another brand. I did find the instructions online but my husband does not use a computer so it would have to be printed out for him also the computer is in one room the door in the other. Shouldn't have to do this for something that costs this much.

  • Looking for a handleset like the Montara with 2 locking points but would much prefer an interior lever instead of a knob. Is that option available with the Montara or another handleset?

    Asked by: Rikva4
    You folks at Kwikset need to make this information available more readily. I had the same issue, and was trying to Frankenstein something together, because I couldn't find what I wanted: twin locks, external decorative handle, internal lever. Wish I had read this question sooner...
