Montara Two-Point Locking Double Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Satin Nickel is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5
by D Norton
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

I have double front doors, looking for dummy handle in the Venetian bronze montara?
Hi Klash,We're sorry but Kwikset does not make a dummy for the Montara handleset. As an alternate solution you may install two active Montara Handlesets and the side that you wish to have non-active would be installed without the latch. The cylinder would remain inside the knob but would be non-active. For assistance with additional questions please contact Kwikset Consumer Service at 1-800-327-5625.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

whats the difference in a double and single cylinder dolt lock. 553mnh lip3 and 554mnh lip3
Hello Mr Stronghold,Double cylinder means the deadbolt is keyed on the interior and exterior side of the door. Single cylinder means the deadbolt is keyed on the exterior and uses a turn knob on the interior for locking and unlocking.Thank you,Kwikset Support

Does the montara come in life time polished brass finish and how is this different from polished brass? any colour difference? Also is the interior pack available in turn type for deadbolt and dorian lever with turn knob for handleset?
Hello DC Customer,The Montara does not come in the Lifetime Polished Brass finish. Lifetime Polished Brass has a clear coating on the finish. There is a slightly blue tinge on the coating of the finish. The interior pack does not have the Dorian lever as an option. There is however, the Tustin and Lido lever that can be special ordered using Kwikset model series #978 and the desired lever and finish.Thank you,Kwikset Support

Can I replace the interior knob with a Tustin lever fron another Tustin locked set or buy just the lever part to fit the Montana exterior set.
Hello Rsa,You will need to purchase the compatible Tustin lever to the Montara model #978TNL left hand or right handed door and the desired finish. The lever from a keyed entry lever set is not compatible with the Montara handle set.Thank you,Kwikset Support
