Montara Two-Point Locking Double Cylinder Handleset, Exterior Only in Polished Brass is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5
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 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

We have the 553 model with interior knob and top lever. Can we purchase just the 979 interior kit and switch out our top lever to create a double cylinder (keyed interior lock) or do we have to buy both 554 and 979 to get the right pieces to fit together?
Hello Stacey,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset products. You will need to purchase the 554 and 979 for compatibility.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

We recently installed this model, but the top deadbolt lock is keyed on exterior side only. We now wish it was keyed on interior side so our young child could not open it so easily. Can we replace interior deadbolt fitting on top lock/and what do we buy?
Hello Stacey,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset products. In order to have a double cylinder unit. You will need to purchase Kwikset model # 554MNH-LIP-15-SMT for the exterior and for the interior Kwikset model # 979 and the desired knob/lever in the 15 finish.For the most up to date pricing and availability please visit your local home improvement special order counter or our Where to Buy page: http://www.kwikset.com/where-to-buy.aspxThank you,Kwikset Support Team

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 have double wood doors so can I get a duomie set.
Hello samelect1,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 554MNH-LIP-11P-SMT. We apologize, the Montara set is not featured in a dummy set. It is recommended to purchase two functioning sets and eliminating the latch when installing the dummy door unit.Sincerely,Kwikset Support Team
