  • 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 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 Excellent product with Smartkey Feature & 2 Locks! Installed 3 years ago on a double door entry. Used 2 sets and put one on each door (was told I couldn't do so, that it would "sag", but I tried it anyway.....and it works!). Had alot of wasted parts to do this (guts), and was expensive overall, but I get lots of complements! No mechanical issues and satin nickel finish is nice. Like the smart key function, easy to match locks up and make changes... I bought Montara with two-points of locking, this way I give vendors only the bottom key to get in (when necessary, like a housekeeper) and I, only, have the key to the deadbolt lock. Now buying another home....and need new locks...will buy this one again! Thus why I decided to comment...good job Kwikset....

    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.

    I need a Montara 2 point set in satin nickel but with a Tustin lever/thumb button interior. Could the lever be substituted for the knob and how would I order it online?

    Asked by: Wally Bein
    Hi Wally Bein, These items can be ordered separately to achieve the look you want. The exterior trim (handle set and deadbolt) would be model #553MNH LIP RCAL RCS 15. The interior side trim for the Tustin lever would be model #978TNL 15 + LH or RH for right or left handed in the satin nickel finish is the compatible interior for this lock.

    Hi. I purchased this lockset 2 years ago in oil rubbed bronze and the finish is starting to weather a bit. What do you recommend to clean the lockset in this finish?

    Asked by: SteveSH
    Hi Steve SH, To clean your product, you can use a mild soap, warm water and a soft cloth. For protection against the sun directly we recommend an small tub of carnuba car wax every few months. This will add an additional UV protective layer to the unit and bring out a nice polished shine as well. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    I have the Montara 2 point single cylinder handleset and i see it says here that the Tustin lever will work to replace the knob. I bought the Tustin lever and it does not work. Please advise.

    Asked by: heokawolf
    Hello heokawolf, Kwikset handle sets need a specific interior pack when changing them out to a different style or choosing the style you want. In this case, you would need an interior pack model #978TNL 15, which is the Tustin lever in the Satin Nickel finish. Buying a complete lever or knob set will not work for handle sets. I hope this helps. Thank you, Kwikset Support Team

    How do you reverse the latch on the Montara X Juno?

    Asked by: RIP
    Hello RIP, In order to reverse the spindle on the back of the handle set to align with the latch, you would need to pull the half moon spindle and flip to the opposite side. Here is a link to the installation instruction online, please refer to page 2, step 7. Thank you, Kwikset Support Team
