from Several problemes I bought this over a year ago. The initial purchase was difficult, I had to return the item SEVERAL TIMES to get one that finally worked correctly. After finally getting a working model, it has worked well since. The only reason that I hung in there to get a working model was that it is the only reasonably inexpensive that has two bolts.

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....

from Happy with this lock, except for a small problem. This is a good solid lock and it looks good. My only problem is that the inside lock button does not always unlock

what is difference between locking single cylinder and locking double cylinder
Hello clownman,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset products. Locking Single cylinder means the deadbolt is keyed on the exterior side of the door with the turn pieces on the interior side of the door. Locking double cylinder means a key is required for locking on the interior and exterior of the deadbolt.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

I have an arlington set, can I use the same deadbolt, but only change out the bottom handle to the montara. The arlington I have it has a key lock on both sides because of the side lites on the door. They both seem to have the same appearance
Hello Johnnierz,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 554MNH-LIP-15-SMT. You may keep the deadbolt installed and change the bottom to a Montara. Please keep in mind this model deadbolt is also keyed on both sides. Also the knob or lever on the interior will need to be changed to a Kwikset model # 979 to be compatible with the Montara handle on the exterior.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

I purchased: 554MNH LIP 3 SMT RCAL RCS & Lido 978LL RH 3. The center pin of the deadbolt mechanism (see instruction sheet, exploded view of "P") does not appear to be long enough to pass thru the deadbolt and thumb latch. Are these items compatible?
