    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 5 out of 5 by from Greatest! Had an old lock which a locksmith destroyed when I was locked out! I called about this Kwikset Handleset which covered my existing holes in a metal door. (I live in a townhouse and I would have had to replace the door.) Customer service was wonderful and sent me a replacement.It is beautiful and I love the fact that there are 2 locks which makes me super secure. I would definitely stay with Kwikset because the product is guaranteed!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look of it We bought this about a year ago to update the look of our front door. It looks great. The fact that the finish is guaranteed for life is a real plus. I like the idea that I can rekey it myself if I want to change. Customer service is excellent.

    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 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 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 2 out of 5 by from Mechanically Excellant. Finish, Not So Much. Bought this Handleset a little over a year ago and it works like a champ. The finish is another story. The Handleset itself has discolored, taking on a "yellowish" tint. The deadbolt itself does not seem to have suffered the same aging effect, making them not so much of a "set" anymore.

  • The description for the Montara two-point handleset states an ANSI Grade 2 security rating.  Is this for the bottom latch and the deadbolt?  I see that other models are ANSI Grade 1 rated.  Model: 553MNHXJ 11P SMT

    Asked by: JROzark
    It's worth noting that the Montara replaced a model that was more secure (grade 1) for less money (553GNXJ 3 SMT).

    Is there a trick to installing the door knob lock? When in use the lock on the inside seems to work correctly, but the latch (when locked) still retracts when the button is pushed from the outside. Any ideas?
