Security Experts Unveil Stylish and Secure Product After Seeking Customer Preference   LAKE FOREST, CALIF. (May 31, 2012) Customer feedback indicates that the number one requested handleset has two points of locking – one on the handle and one on the deadbolt. To make homeowners feel inherently safe at home, Kwikset launches the Montara Handleset, a two-point locking handleset. Never compromising on style, the Montara handleset was designed for the customer that wants a stylish and secure front door. Montara exceeds expectations with a sleek arched appearance and the ability to adjust to fit any standard door prep. “Our customers are our number one priority, which is why we are always asking them what we can do to make their lives more simple and secure at home,” said Krista Weigand, senior product manager, Kwikset. “When we learned their preference in handlesets, we made sure we had a stylish product available for any homeowner to proudly put on their door.” The Montara Handleset is equipped with Kwikset SmartKey® Re-key Technology with BumpGuard protection, which allows homeowners to re-key their locks in seconds, without removing the lock from the door. Like all Kwikset products, the Montara handleset is easy to install – adjusting to fit the hole in the bottom of your door..
