    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look and SmartKey is a big plus I purchased the Montara Handleset when I had my front door replaced this past summer. It looks and works great, and love the SmartKey feature. I've installed Kwickset SmartKey locks on three entry doors, both handle and dead bolt, and on two utility doors in the garage. I did have an issue with re-keying the handleset cylinder though. Initial unsuccessful re-keying was performed by the door installer. The replacement handleset from Home Depot would also not re-key. Kwitckset send me a replacement cylinder that was easy to replace and worked properly, without the hassle and extra time of sending in the receipt. Although it would have been great if the original cylinder had worked properly, the great customer support has made me a loyal customer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Finish, Great Customer Support The Montara product has a great shiny brass finish. Its only been 9 months since intallation but looks very nice. However, the keys that I programmed with the (truly) easy-to-follow directions, stopped working. I called the 800 number and followed the instructions given, and it became clear the locking mechanism was not working as intended. Kwikset sent me a new cylinder which I installed and reset all keys. The procedure and new cylinder worked and continue to work. I appreciated the on-line help and the co. sending me a new part. I have been using Kwikset products since 1986 and have always been satisfied. Rarely have I had a problem with their locks, many of the parts are interchangeable (within Kwikset products), and they are reasonably priced! I will continue to use Kwikset Products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install This is a great looking lock set and super easy to install. I reset the keys using the smart key so both homes were keyed alike

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and Functionality I bought this lock at Home Depot around 9 months ago and this lock really enhanced the exterior appearance of my home, the smart key feature always rocks as I was able to use my existing keys. I have even polished it with Brasso to maintain the finish which is really well done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Double Entry Doors are a hit I purchased 2 of these for my double entry doors, the do not make a dummy set for the Montara, and everyone that comes to our door makes nice comments. The Satin Nickle finish is flawless on both and the Smart Key feature was perfect for my large family so we didn't have to buy a bunch of new keys. Great set!

  • Just bought 553MNHXJ 11P SMT CP 1-pc handleset with single cyl. for new fiberglass door, which is 1.69 in. thick. Also, door manuf. said my door has 2-3/8" backset & 2-1/8" face bore, & locks are 5-1/2" on center. Will this handleset fit my door?

    Asked by: muzikluvr56
    Thanks, Kwikset Team Member, for your reply!  I'm confused about your answer, however, because you state that the door thickness must be between 1 3/8 (which is 1.375) inches and 1 3/4 (or 1.75).  If mine is 1.69, then shouldn't that work?  The other measurements seemed to match the specs from the door manufacturer.  Thanks for your help!

    We own this Handleset. I would like to change the deadbolt only to a deadbolt that uses a key on both sides rather than a lever. Do you sell the deadbolt only, key on both sides, in the Montana style in polished brass?

    Can an established back door lock (Gatehouse - double cylinder deadbolt) be compatible with the Montara two-point locking double cylinder handleset, so the same key can be used for front and back door?
