Enjoy increased security and easy fit with the Montara handleset. 2 points of locking, on the deadbolt and the handleset, provide double the security. And the adjustable through bolt at the bottom of the handleset allows for easy installation and provides you peace of mind knowing that it will adjust to fit the bottom hole in your door.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is at least the third set I am using from Kwikset. Beyond the great products and features, the customer care clearly stands out. I highly respect this great American company that honored my complaints about the finish. When finish faded out, I just had to give them a call after many years. I was very hesitant to call. However, they were very welcoming and simple to deal with. They only asked for a few photos of the front door lock that I was complaining about. In just less than a week, I received the newer version of my old lock. Better yet, the smart key feature was also in the new door lock so I didn't have to change the keys for the entire family. I was so impressed with this type high and honorable customer care. I really thank everyone in this company for the highest quality of their products and their outstanding professionalism and customer care as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features - Double Locking both on Dead bolt, It always made me wonder why a homeowner would only rely on a single dead bolt door security and then have a thumb latch handle that merely latched the door without locking the thumb latch with a key for double security. Eighteen years ago - I purchased the Montara set in a Bronze finish. I purchased this set because it came with a dead bolt, plus - the outside handle was keyed for locking the thumb latch, and came with an interior door handle that could lock the thumb latch from the inside. I loved it. The feeling of door security far out passed any of my neighbors front door locking systems, where they had a dead bolt, and a thumb latch exterior handle with an interior knob or lever handle - but, their system only used the thumb latch to close the front door. Their exterior handle thumb latch never locked with a key. And, they could only lock their thumb latch from inside the house. When I moved - I again purchased the Kwikset Montara locking system. Still in Bronze to match the foyer's dark crown moulding. Though, I have had to ask for certain replacement parts, a new screw set, and interior knob - I am amazed at the service I have received from the Kwikset Company. I did not realize that my purchase had a lifetime warranty - and these parts were shipped to me free of charge. I am very thankful to Kwikset, they not only provided me with a front door locking system that surpased any of my neighbors - but, have stood behind their product for these many years. Thank You Kwikset!

  • I am not able to find a matching dummy set for my inactive side of the front door.

    Asked by: Chow
    Hello Chow, The Montara is not manufactured as a dummy set. It is suggested to install the functioning set without the latch to use as a dummy set. You would need to purchase 2 active Montara handlesets and convert one to a dummy (without the latch) for your matching door. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    Good Afternoon, I have the Montara 553MNH LIP 15, I want to remove the inside round handle and place the Juno handle on and use the same handle mounting base mechanism how do you get round handle off its base/mechanism don't want buy a whole Juno set up

    Asked by: PINTOBOBSTER
    Hi PINTOBOBSTER, The Montara handle set already comes with the Juno knob as a whole complete set #553MNHXJ 15 SMT. Modifying a knob to try and get it to work is not possible or recommended because it is not configured to mate with the Montara handle set. This can lead to non-functional locking or unlocking. If you already have the Montara without the interior, you would need to special order the interior pack with the Juno knob, model #978J 15. This would be a special order item so you would need to special order through a major home improvement store special order counters such as Lowes or Home Depot. I hope this helps, please call us if you have any further questions or need more assistance at 1-800-327-5625. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    Good Afternoon, My outside key turns to left to lock and right to unlock how do I get it to right to lock and left to unlock my deadbolt is right to lock left to unlock want them both the same 553MNH LIP 15 Montara 2 lock system.

    Asked by: PINTOBOBSTER
    Hi PINTOBOBSTER, The Montara handle set will always lock to the left and unlock to the right, this cannot be changed as it is internal to the lock. The deadbolt will lock depending on your door handling. If you're standing outside and the hinges of your door are on the left side, the deadbolt will lock to the right. The deadbolt locks when the key throws the bolt outward into the door jam to lock. I hope this helps. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    Does this product come with a dummy pair?

    Asked by: mb3
    Hello mb3, At this time there are no plans to make a dummy for Kwikset Montara model #553MNHXJ 11P SMT. As an alternative 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. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team
