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 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

Is there a "dummy" handle to go with the Montara handle for double doors
Hello GI Joe,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 554MNH LIP 15 SMT. The Montara model is not featured in the dummy series. However, it is suggested to purchase two functioning locks and eliminating the latch will allow the lock to act as a dummy lock.Thank you,Kwikset Support
